Favourite story of childhood

During the European Renaissanceartistic depictions of children increased dramatically, which did not impact the social attitude to children much, however. The English philosopher John Locke was particularly influential in defining this new attitude towards children, especially with regard to his theory of the tabula rasawhich considered the mind at birth to be a "blank slate".

Forest of Morrois The following scenes were differently written by the two authors. First, I will tell Thomas' version before I tell Beroul's.

According to Thomas and Gottfried von Stassburg, Mark tiring of bearing his doubts and suspicions of the relationship between his wife and nephew, despite Isolde having undergone the ordeal by fire, the king ordered the lovers to leave his court.


Mark could not execute them, so he banished the lovers to the forest. Both Tristan and Isolde left the court, hand in hand, secretly rejoicing that they would be able to live together. Tristan and Isolde found shelter in the cave at the forest of Morrois, where Tristan hunted for their food.

Mark decided to have his wife and nephew burn at the stakes. Tristan failed to persuade his uncle of Isolde's innocence. As the guards lead them to the stakes, Tristan asked them to at least allow to pray in the church before he was to die.

In the chapel, the only mean of escape was through the window. However, the chapel was situated on top of a high cliff. Tristan fearlessly jumped down below, landing on the sand without injury. Tristan believed that God was on his side, otherwise he would have jumped to his death. When Mark heard that Tristan had escape, instead of burning his wife at the stake, he decided to give Isolde to a group of lepers who were likely to rape her.

Governal was afraid that King Mark might also arrest him as an accomplice, decided to leave secretly.

Sorry! Something went wrong!

Governal wore Tristan's armour and sword, before riding out. By fortunate event, Governal met Tristan on the beach. After Tristan put on his armour on and mounting his horse, Tristan decided to rescue Isolde from the stake.

Instead Tristan found Isolde surrounded by lepers. The hero charged into them and plucked Isolde from lust-crazed lepers and rode away into the forest. Beroul's poem shows that Tristan and Isolde was living in hardship at Morrois compared that to Thomas' work.

They feared that Mark and his retinues would discover their hiding place. But the Cornish nobles feared to enter the forest after Governal killed one of the nobles whom had betrayed Tristan and Isolde. Tristan had a dog called Husdant Hodain was suffering from withdrawal, since Tristan's escape, leaving his faithful hound behind.

King Mark taking pity on the hound, decided to release it. Husdant followed tracks from the city to the Tristan's hiding place in the forest.Books shelved as childhood-favorites: Charlotte's Web by E.B.

White, Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein, A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle. TV shows and characters have huge influence over children's thoughts and behavioral patterns. For me, The Simpsons was the show that made an impact.
