Hi, I just want to find in some of the arthurian legends Цитаты of arthur and guinevere and their great love. I found this play by Jhon Tewall ( 1801)
and in this arthur have to saved guinevere despite all amount of obstacles ( demons, witches, etc) and tristan is his ally... and well I foun some interesting Цитаты to share with you
Arthur: Oh Guenever!
Soul of my soul!—Oh charms, above all charm!
Trancendent in their loveliness! once deem'd
My sole sequester'd treasure!—Paradise
Of all my thoughts! and of my nightly dreams
Sole visitant—when, pure as winnow'd snows,
That from the peaky Vans, till spring matures,
Gleam on the dazzled traveller, thou cam'st,
With funny smiles of sanctity and love,
Blessing my pillow'd slumber.——Guenever!
Guenever. Oh! heav'n!
Arthur! my lord! my hero!—in thy fight—-
O! cruel destiny!
He runs towards the moat, which he is about to leap;
when suddenly the whole pile of building, замок and
Keep together, and all the ground they occupied, sink
down. The Космос becomes filled by a pool of Water.
In the place where the round tower stood, The Lady
of the Lake appears in her chariot, with Guen-
ever seated by her side, and Tristram behind.
The Chariot, &c approaches the shore. Scout comes
swimming after. Arthur and Guenever rush into
each other's arms.
Arth. All-gracious powers!
Guen. My hero!
Arth. O! My Love!
A Dance of Virgins who crown Arthur and his
Knights with chaplets.
Chorus. Любовь and Glory, thus uniting,
All their mingled boons confer.
Arthur, lo! thy worth requiting,
Empire, Fame, and Guenever
Blow the martial trump again,
Give to Fame the closing strain—
Fame, that shall her wreaths confer
On Arthur and on Guenever;
And bid her loudest clarion wake,
To hail the Lady of the Lake.
