"No member of this cast is a household name, but all of them demonstrate high-quality
dramatic skills in the presentation of the twelfth-century epic French poem considered by many to be
the first great piece of French literature."AudioFile

Since his youth, living in poverty in a cave in Italy, Roland's mother has taught him that someday he
will be a brave hero like his father, Milon, and serve with the great army of Charlemagne. He learns
from her that he is descended from great heroes of old and that his mother is Charlemagne's sister,
the Princess Bertha. When Charlemagne comes to Italy, Roland confronts the king, who rejoices to
find his long-lost sister and gives both her and her son a place of honor in his court. As Roland
becomes a man and a knight, he embarks on a quest to the Far East and becomes champion to
the Princess of Cathay.

One of the great medieval "songs of great deeds," this is a composite of several hero legends interlaced
with Christian moral sentiments. A remarkable panorama of medieval life and thought, The Song of
Roland truly reflects the spirit of the times.

Have you always loved reading but sometimes find it hard to find the time? Thereís nothing quite like curling up with a good book but many of us canít do that as much as weíd like. We sacrifice this special time because we have so many other things to do each day. Itís a common problem and itís the reason why people on average are not reading as much as they once did. Audio books bring the story to life just as the storytellers of the past did. They allow you to experience the book in a whole new way; in the way the writer felt and heard it in their head. You can feel the emotion when you allow audio books to let the story come to life.
