Isolde's Narrative from Tristan und Isolde.....Wagner
Tristan, a valiant Cornish knight, is taking Isolde, princess of Ireland, to be the bride of his uncle, King Mark. As the ship nears Cornwall, Isolde, growing indignant at Tristan's persistent refusal to see her and desperate at the thought of her enforced loveless marriage, relates the events that led to her departure for Cornwall:
How once she had healed Tristan with her art of herbs and balsam--though under the name of "Tantris"--and then sought to wreak revenge on him for slaying her betrothed, Sir Morold; but, powerless against his anguish, she continued to tend him. Soon he returned, under his true name of Tristan, as an emissary to demand the hand of Isolde for his uncle, King Mark. Believing that this alliance would end the strife between Ireland and Cornwall, her parents assented; and Isolde, grieving bitterly, was compelled to follow the knight to Cornwall. So, in her shame, she declares vengeance and death on Tristan and herself.
