᠖ Advantages of reading קּ The Song of Roland and Other Poems of Charlemagne eBook: Simon Gaunt, Karen Pratt: Amazon.fr: Amazon Media EU S.à r.l. ᡪ Kindle Ebook By Simon Gaunt ᢈ Charles the king, our emperor great,Has been a full seven years in Spain.As far as the sea he conquered this haughty land.Not a single castle remains standing in his pathCharlemagne 768 814 was crowned Holy Roman Emperor in 800 and presided over a huge empire He frequently appears in literature as a great warlord and pious crusading figure In 778, the rearguard of Charlemagne s retreating army was ambushed and defeated at the battle of Roncevaux This became the inspiration for songs and poems celebrating deeds of valour in the face of overwhelming odds, through the character of Charlemagne s nephew the imaginary Roland The Song of Roland is themost stirring and moving epic poem of the European Middle Ages, offering a particularly heady mixture of history, legend, and poetry.Presented here in a lively and idiomatic new translation, the Song of Roland offers fascinating insights into medieval ideas about heroism, manhood, religion, race, and nationhood which were foundational for modern European culture The Song of Roland is accompanied here by two other medieval French epics about Charlemagne, both of which show him to be a far equivocal figure than that portrayed by the Roland the Occitan Daurel and Beton, in which he is a corrupt andavaricious monarch and the Journey of Charlemagne to Jerusalem and Constantinople, which gives the heroes of the Roland a comic makeover.Simon
