This book brings to life in modern English nine lively medieval verse romances, in a form that both reflects the original and makes them inviting to a modern audience. All nine tales contain elements of magic: shapeshifters, powerful fairies, trees that are portals to another world, magical armor, clothing, and animals. They address sexuality, agency, and identity-formation in ways that may surprise the modern reader. The texts are re-rhymed to be accessible to a modern reader, retaining the original poets structure while also remaining as close to the meaning of the original as possible.
