Princely Singers of Eros By Fritz Maes
eBook (PDF): $7.00
PRINCELY SINGERS OF EROS were aristocratic vigorous young men who composed ballads of love for their enigmatic precious young women. Such poetry ranged emotionally from the agony to the ecstasy felt... More > by the lordly singers and their lady-lovers during their courtship and/or wedlock. The songs they crafted, whether tragic or cathartic, whether wrathful or thankful, were dynamic artistic celebrations of the natural and healthy sexuality of monogamous male-female affinity. These noble men greatly enjoyed lovemaking with their beautiful women, and then creating high literary artworks honouring them. Accordingly, these worthy men and their wonderful women generated children who constituted both renewed dynastic sovereignty and reborn ethnic nobility, quite literally the fruition of their parents’ various intimate passionate unions. This lyrical love-poetry of Germany is comparable to the best of that from Ireland, England, Denmark, France, Hungary, Russia, Persia, Japan, or anywhere else in the World.< Less

More > various Teutonic tribes, including Athanaric, Alaric and Roderic (Visigoths), Theodoric (Ostrogoth), Clovis, Charlemagne (Franks), and also the later heroes, Alfred the Great, Rollo the Viking. The transition from barbarian tribe to Christian nation is featured in each story. HISTORY has no period which makes a more vivid appeal to the young reader than the thousand years which we call the Middle Ages. The mediaeval world is just such a world as he would like to live in, where knights ride off on crusades, and kings wander out from their palaces in disguise, where heroes sail away to explore unknown seas, and gay cavaliers sally forth to tournament and joust. It requires no effort to interest boys and girls in this part of history.< Less
