Tristan and Iseult is a legend made popular during the 12th Century through French medieval poetry, and inspired from archetypal Celtic legends . It has become an influential romance and tragedy, retold in numerous sources with as many variations. The tragic story is of the adulterous love between the Cornish knight Tristan (Tristram) and the Irish princess Iseult (Isolde, Yseult, etc.). The narrative predates and most likely influenced the Arthurian romance of Lancelot and Guinevere, and has had a substantial impact on Western art, the idea of romantic love and literature since it first appeared in the 12th century. While the details of the story differ from one author to another, the overall plot structure remains much the same.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A classic I have always wanted to read but never got the chance until recently. The story is well crafted and thought provoking. The desire to know how the characters react to the situation at hand and seeing their affection grows with each effort. One classic off my bucket list. Next the Dubliners by James Joyce.
