TristanandIseult

Tristan and Iseult
Folk Legend


This archaic legend tells a tale of forbidden love between a Cornish knight and an Irish beauty. Tristan, who is trusted implicitly by the King, is sent to fetch the enchanting Iseult and bring her back for a royal wedding. During the journey, the two unknowingly consume a potion that entrances them, and they fall deeply in love. After Iseult becomes Queen, she carries on a secret liaison with Tristan, which is eventually exposed. The ending of this tale is flexible, because multiple versions of the tale were written by numerous authors. So pick the conclusion that suits your mood this Valentine's Day!

by F. Scott Fitzgerald
