The Ballad of the White Horse
$1.99 – $6.99
One of the Last Great Epic Poems in the English Language
By the yawning tree in the twilight
The King unbound his sword,
Severed the harp of all his goods,
And there in the cool and soundless woods
Sounded a single chord.
― G.K. Chesterton, The Ballad of the White Horse
The Ballad of the White Horse is an epic poem by G.K. Chesterton about the adventures of the Saxon king, Alfred the Great. Good battles evil as the Christian English king seeks victory over pagan invaders. In both conception and detail, J.R.R. Tolkien is said to have been indebted to The Ballad of the White Horse in his writing of The Lord of the Rings.
