Description

A classic of medieval romance and heroic adventure, Ivanhoe follows the fortunes of Richard the Lion Hearted and his ally, Wilfred of Ivanhoe. While Richard is in the Holy Land on a Crusade, his brother, John, usurps the throne with the help of disloyal Norman barons. Returning home, a disguised Richard and Ivanhoe defeat their enemies at a tournament. Later, Ivanhoe and his friends are taken captive by the Normans, but liberated by Richard. However, Ivanhoe's love, the Jewish woman Rebecca, is accused of witchcraft, and Ivanhoe must defend her in trial by combat. The well-deserved and enduring popularity of this classic results from Sir Walter Scott's prodigious gifts as a storyteller, exemplified best here in this masterpiece of epic proportions.
