Book excerpt: Parzival is a medieval romance by the German poet, knight, and troubadour Wolfram von Eschenbach. The story belongs to the most significant examples of medieval literature. The poem, dated to the first quarter of the 13th century, tells about the legendary knight of the Round Table Parzival (Percival in English) and his long search for the Holy Grail following his initial failure to achieve it. The story begins with Parzival's birth and early life, continues with his attempts to find King Arthur and join him, together with his friend Gawan and concludes in meeting and marriage to the love of his life Orgeluse. Although the poem is dedicated to the spiritual and physical search for Saint Grail, its central narrative is love, chivalry, and courtship that reward the hero with a happy completion of his deeds.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In presenting, for the first time, to English readers the greatest work of Germany's greatest mediæval poet, a few words of introduction, alike for poem and writer, may not be out of place. The lapse of nearly seven hundred years, and the changes which the centuries have worked, alike in language and in thought, would have naturally operated to render any work unfamiliar, still more so when that work was composed in a foreign tongue; but, indeed, it is only within the present century that the original text of the Parzivalhas been collated from the MSS. and made accessible, even in its own land, to the general reader. But the interest which is now felt by many in the Arthurian romances, quickened into life doubtless by the genius of the late Poet Laureate, and the fact that the greatest composer of our time, Richard Wagner, has selected this poem as the groundwork of that wonderful drama, which a growing consensus of opinion has hailed as the grandest artistic achievement of this century, seem to indicate that the time has come when the work of Wolfram von Eschenbach may hope to receive, from a wider public than that of his own day, the recognition which it so well deserves. Of the poet himself we know but little, save from the personal allusions scattered throughout his works; the dates of his birth and death are alike unrecorded, but the frequent notices of contemporary events to be found in his poems enable us to fix with tolerable certainty the period of his literary activity, and to judge approximately the outline of his life. Wolfram's greatest work, the Parzival, was apparently written within the early years of the thirteenth century; he makes constant allusions to events happening, and to works produced, within the first decade of that period; and as his latest work, the Willehalm, left unfinished, mentions as recent the death of the Landgrave Herman of Thuringia, which occurred in 1216, the probability seems to be that the Parzival was written within the first fifteen years of the thirteenth century. Inasmuch, too, as this work bears no traces of immaturity in thought or style, it is probable that the date of the poet's birth cannot be placed much later than 1170.

Book excerpt: The story of Parzival is one of the great classics of the previous millennium. It is the colorful tale of the time of knights, filled with romance, love and, adventure. David Newbatt's illustrations in this book bring a refreshing, vivid, and direct interpretation of Parzival's quest for the Holy Grail, while the text gives a brief, clear, and concise introduction to some of the many characters and events portrayed in this epic tale. Parzival is a great story for reading by the fireside, but it is also a deep and intense piece of literature. It portrays an individual's archetypal biography, which still speaks to us today as we pursue our own search for the modern Grail Temple. This lavish edition is highly recommended ... a great gift that will be treasured for years to come.

Book excerpt: Enter the extraordinary world of Arthurian legend in an adventure overflowing with knightly chivalry, the danger of jousting and the warmth of true love. But the Legend of Parzival is more than the tale of one knight's epic journey to find the elusive Holy Grail; along the way Parzival faces a challenging journey of self-discovery. He must conquer his ignorance and pride, and learn humility and compassion before he is finally worthy of becoming a Grail Knight. This accessible prose retelling of the medieval German epic brings the wonderful story of the Arthurian knight (known variously as Parzival, Parsifal and Percival) to life for today's readers, while faithfully preserving the story, characters and tone of Wolfram von Eschenbach's thirteenth century narrative poem. In Steiner-Waldorf education, Parzival's quest is seen as a metaphor for the difficult journey through life, which speaks strongly to the adolescent, and its study is at the heart of the Class 11 curriculum. As a hugely experienced Steiner-Waldorf teacher, Robin Cook's engaging retelling will provide valuable inspiration for other teachers and students, as well as enjoyment and enrichment for all readers.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "It's not my fight," said Ethan Grey. It didn't matter. Mexico was at war, and he was in it. He'd wanted a cruise in warm waters, a chance to forget the war he'd just fought, the War Between the States. But the ship he chose so casually had another mission, and like it or not Ethan Grey was on board. The storms at sea, the battles with enemy ships, the long trip overland through hostile territory, the flight from French mercenaries; it became his war, too. But this time, at least it was simpler. It was just a fight for his friends. And for Maria. The Voyage of the Parzival is based on an earlier book by Terry Mort entitled, Shipment to Mexico. "Mort makes a fascinating read out of every subject he takes up." - The Associated Press "Terry Mort is an author extraordinaire." - Ann LaFarge - The Hudson Valley News
