#6: The Bridal of Triermain, by Sir Walter Scott

My archive.org entry probably says it all. I'm fascinated that Scott managed to combine Regency romance, Arthurian adventure, and medieval lais into one coherent storyline (and meta-storyline). It's a pretty nifty little poem ('little' meaning 'in three cantos and a bunch of prologues and epilogues'), IMHO, and I hope you'll enjoy it, too.

You can read The Bridal of Triermain at the University of Rochester's Camelot Project, a handy gatherum of all sorts of Arthurian materials.
