King Arthur's Raid on Hell and other poems

Rated 3.50/5 based on 2 reviews
Most of these poems are written in medieval fixed forms, or approximations of medieval forms – one of my on-going quests being a search for ways of reproducing the sound and feel of medieval Welsh poetry in modern English. And yet, because the bardic art I practice is a performance art, these are in a larger sense not my poems at all, but merely pale imitations – poems preserved on paper.

I adore this book! As I was reading, I felt as if I was transported to some ancient hall with a roaring fire and a talented bard spinning tales for me, instead of in front of my computer.

This is a very good collection of well written medieval inspired poems. I’m not a big fan of poetry and am definitely not familiar with Welsh poetry, but as a former participant of SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism) I had a high appreciation for this type of writing. I never wrote poems when I was an SCA member, but I read poems written by people in my group and always enjoyed the style in which they were written. This brought me back to enjoying medieval poems. Thank you G.R. Grove for the LibraryThing giveaway for your collection of poems!
