Summary (From the publisher):

"If the two of whom this love-story tells had not endured sorrow for the sake of joy, love's pain for its ectasy within one heart, their name and history would never have brought such rapture to so many noble spirits."

Gottfried von Strassburg's Tristan (c. 1210), here completed with the surviving fragments of the earlier Tristran of Thomas, is a masterpiece of formal artistry. This tale of the hero Tristan and the beautiful Queen Isolde, united by a magic potion that defies all legal and moral sanctions, has stood the test of time as one of the greatest love-stories ever written.
