Description More Information
 
One of the last great epic poems, this ballad tells the tale of Alfred the Great's unlikely victory -- with the assistance of the Virgin Mary -- over Gunthrum and the Danes at the Battle of Ethandune.

A Catholic allegory relying more upon legends than historical facts, this chronicle is often considered G.K. Chesterton's greatest literary achievement.
