Dala recently downloaded The Song of Roland for me. She got a translation by K.C. Moncrieff for free from Project Guttenburg. I've heard so many summaries for this poem from "moving and inspiring" to "bleak" to "a slow, tedious, slog." If anything, this tells me that this is a pretty complex poem with a lot of elements. I'm gonna give it about thirty pages or so, and if I like it, I'll continue. If not, I'll probably move on to Grettir's Saga that someone on here mentioned to me quite a while ago.

I don't know where I'm gonna go after that.
