The Lady of the Lake

Rating: 6.0/10 from 196 ratings

The Lady of the Lake is a narrative poem tremendously influential, and serving as inspiration for the Highland Revival. It is composed of six cantos, each of which concerns the action of a single day. The poem has three main plots: the contest among three men, Roderick Dhu, James Fitz-James, and Malcolm Graeme, to win the love of Ellen Douglas; the feud and reconciliation of King James V of Scotland and James Douglas; and a war between the lowland Scots (led by James V) and the highland clans (led by Roderick Dhu of Clan Alpine).
