The Medieval Myths Paperback – July 21, 2012. This book was the only text used in my Medievial Myth class, and while I was at first very excited to read this compilation it soon became a burden. Goodrich has lofty aims - to bring the origional texts to the reader in her own way with a minimum of abridgement and interference. Unfortuntally the text through the whole book is just confusing. The stroy of Peredur, a distant begening of the Aurthur Legends, is so disjointed as to be unreadable.

A brilliant re-creation of the great myths of the Middle Ages—from Beowulf to the Cid! Medieval myths are as significant to modern reads as they were to the unlettered serfs and lords of feudal times. Their influence on literature, philosophy, and folklore is apparent throughout the history of Europe, and they have deeply expressed the imagination and dreams of many peoples. Offering nine brilliant retellings of the great myths of the medieval world, this is the first collection to compare national heroes of a time when their cultures were emerging from barbarism into civilization. The stories of Beowulf, Roland, Tannhauser, Culchulain, and other mythic heroes are among the oldest of the western world, and their reverberations have deeply affected the ideals of the nations from which they came. These rousing sagas, so vividly presented here, are masterpieces of world literature that give modern readers new insights into the origins of European culture.

I first read Norma Lorre Goodrich's recount of the Song of Roland during 6th grade. Beyond the vivid descriptions of valour and tragedy, that were enacted playfully as I endulged by boyhood fantasies, I also learned that war and battle can be gruesome. From El Sid to Siegfried the tales are told superbly and I am so happy it has continued to remain in print. No library of Medieval Myth, History and Literature should be without. How great it was to receive in a timely manner.

I was not pleased from the start, when I ordered the product I was immediately sent a response that the product was shipped via USPS without a tracking code, and to expect delivery within 23 days. No where in America should product shipment take 23 days, even at the least expensive mailing method. This was required summer reading for school, and this meant that delivery would be the same as the first day of school. The book was never received. The seller refunded my money on request, but did not apologize, they stated it was shipped. It still has never been received. I do not believe that it was shipped. I will not try to buy a used book online again.

This book was the only text used in my Medievial Myth class, and while I was at first very excited to read this compilation it soon became a burden. Goodrich has lofty aims - to bring the origional texts to the reader in her own way with a minimum of abridgement and interference. Unfortuntally the text through the whole book is just confusing. The stroy of Peredur, a distant begening of the Aurthur Legends, is so disjointed as to be unreadable. Stories are also in modern language and story form, so although Beowulf was originally a poem, it is not in this translation. It was very dissapointing to have such high hopes for a valid littery work only to be left confused by the translated text. A better work is H.A. Guerber's Middle Ages from the Myths and Legends Collection. At least that work mixes coherent modern story with noted original translation to bring home the point.

Even though there were some interesting points in this book, it really just put me to sleep. Overall, this book is boring, and I couldn't even finish it. I'm sure there are some more interesting books about medieval myths that I would suggest people read. I gave this book a 2 star because 1 star means that I through it away.
