The Lay of the Last Minstrel

Review ↠ The Lay of the Last Minstrel 102 Tions introduced by the digitization process Though we have made best efforts the books may have occasional errors that do not impede the reading experience We believe. It s been a while since I made the effort to read an epic poem but I m glad I read this one Since Melrose Abbey plays a tremendous role in this story I wish I d read it before I visited Melrose Abbey on my way to Edinburgh one year My stop was merely a brief meditative side trek on a pilgrimage designed to visit Middleham Castle and Barnard Castle as part of my fascination with Richard IIIThis epic is the story of a lady who is trying to avoid being married off to one of the enemies of her late husband She sends a messenger to Melrose Abbey to recover a tome of disconcerting magic For this will be St Michael s nightAnd though stars be dim the moon is bright And the Cross of bloody redWill point to the grave of the mighty dead One of the great surprises to me was that this was the poem with the famous line Breathes there the man with soul so deadWho never to himself hath saidThis is my own my native landWhose heart hath ne er within him burn dAs home his footsteps he hath turn dFrom wandering on a foreign strandIf such there breathe go mark him well For him no Minstrel raptures swell High though his titles proud his nameBoundless his wealth as wish can claim Despite those titles power and pelfThe wretch concentred all in selfLiving shall forfeit fair renown And doubly dying shall go downTo the vile dust from whence he sprungUnwept unhonor d and unsung Of course I felt like the trading of sagas by the various minstrels at the wedding felt like filler and I suppose it was but Scott certainly did a good job of capturing the idea of an old minstrel straining his voice and continuing to retune his old warped harp in order to try to hold his noble audience On the other hand I particularly enjoyed Scott s reuse of religious ritual like the reuiem s Dies irae or the reverse apocalypse where the parched scroll of the flaming heavens closes rather than opening to contrast with the mysterious appearance of the dead at a vital point in the epic I thought the whole ending was an anti climax howeverAs for the stories My Aunt Margaret s Mirror is a remembrance of the author s spinster aunt That the real aunt was a little eccentric could be demonstrated by her propensity to read from a lit taper resting in a human skull When one night the skull moved seemingly of its own accord and landed on the floor said aunt was sharp enough to discover that a rat had infiltrated her memento mori and caused it to move according to its own or in this case the rat s designsIronically the aunt in this story is rather disposed to superstition and seems unlikely to have uncovered such a phenomenon as the real aunt exposed Her reticence to look in her looking glass of an evening as though the specter of death itself might be lurking in the shadows behind her or some ghostly apparition should use the large mirror as a portal into the living world forms an integral part of the storyMy favorite line in the story was occasionally prefer the twilight of illusion to the steady light of reason This seems appropriate in that the story shares of an Italian doctor with unexpectedly Protestant leanings had a propensity for dabbling in the darker arts He used a mirror to divine or scrye the fate of a husband in foreign military service At this point the story seemed most interesting but the remainder served as an anti climax The Tapestried Chamber involves a general returned from the American War of Independence who discovers that an old school chum has inherited an amazing estate As would be expected there is the anticipated nocturnal visitation and brief revelation of its source There is nothing very remarkable in the story though it could serve as color for a similar but extended and active tale Death of the Laird s Jock is as fascinating for its introduction as it is for the tale itself The introduction shares of Bernard Gilpin a Protestant clergyman in the Scots border areas who was horrified to see a mailed gauntlet hanging above an altar in challenge to those who would defy its position Gilpin felt it was sacrilege placing one s own prowess at arms versus the might of God Upon being told that removing the gauntlet consisted of a challenge to the mightiest knight in the region Gilpin informed all who would listen that he himself had removed the gauntlet The knight was too ashamed to challenge the clergyman Hence the sanctuary was restored to its symbolic purpose in pointing toward GodThe eponymous protagonist of this story was of course named Jock He was distinguished from other s with this common name by being identified as The Laird s Jock essentially The lord s son Jock In some ways this may well be an etiological tale for the origin of a place known as Laird s Jock s stone Alas the resolution here is also uite predictable but the redeeming uality is that it provides an easily re worked set up for a new artifact in game design and story for my writers group
