this is fantastic! today I was reading Joe Campbell's hero's journey and he mentioned this poem. I had to look it up! I dont know if this is it but I really like this one! thank you!


I'm so glad you like it!

This is not the original, which is a medieval French piece, if I recall correctly. It's not even a very close translation - it's just the basic outline of the tale set in my own words.

I haven't really researched it, past reading a translation myself, so I can't even say if my take on the tone is a good one. I found it to be pretty comic, and so I present it that way, but the original may have been more serious.
