About this title:

Synopsis: Excerpt from Three Middle English Romances: King Horn, Havelok, Beves of Hampton

The story is told with a ballad-like swift ness Of action and with a unity rarely found in romance. Horn is essentially a love story; and though the love Of the king's daughter for one supposedly humble, the seven-year exile, the forced marriage of the lover's lady to another, the disguises, the dreams that prophesy disaster, the magic ring that at love's thought makes the hero invulnerable, the heroic adven turings against impossible Odds, are largely conventional incidents,l and are fused into a plot that overworks, with the true naivete of romance, such good motives as rescues and Saracen invasions, y'et withal, there is in the telling a freshness as of things untouched. Not quite like that of other mediaeval heroes is Horn's young joy in bird songs and the springing grass.
