Calling culture vultures and anyone who enjoys stories, travel, history or politics! Award-winning travel writer Nicholas Jubber highlights the great European epic poems and their continuing relevance today. These tales of dragons, gods, emperors, knights and feisty princesses were shaped by their times and have since helped shape modern Europe. Recounting his journeys across a continent now struggling with its identity, Jubber explores how honour, fate, fundamentalism, nationhood, class, sex and politics have preoccupied Europeans across the millennia. Classic!
