A collection of stories from the works of the romancers & tale tellers of the Middle Ages. Mr. Reinhard has re-translated many of them, adapted them, & set them in a framework similar to the Canterbury Tales of the Decameron, this time a group of congenial spirits gathered in an Irish monastery. "Mr. Reinhard places the serious student in his debt, & provides the general reader with some entertaining hours."--MANCHESTER GUARDIAN.
