Description

This article from the Western Mail offers a positive review of Edwin Arlington Robinson’s long narrative poem ‘Tristram’, published in 1927. Following poems titled ‘Merlin’ in 1917 and ‘Lancelot’ in 1920, this poem is the third instalment in a trilogy by Robinson based on Arthurian legends. ‘Tristram’ is a retelling, in blank verse, of Béroul’s late twelfth-century medieval romance ‘Tristram and Iseult’. The story of Tristram and Iseult is a tale of adulterous love between a Cornish Knight and the Irish bride of his uncle, King Mark. Robinson was awarded a Pulitzer prize for his ‘Tristram’ in 1928.
