The Song Of Roland
Translated, with a LONG Introduction
By Dorothy L. Sayers
The earliest, the most famous, and the greatest of those Old French epics called "Songs of Deeds." Written around the end of the 11th century, recalling an earlier disaster in 778, the anonymous poet describes in detail the betrayal and slaughter by Saracens of the rear guard of Charlemagne's army under Roland at Rencevaux, and of Charlemagne's bitter revenge.
