The Ballad of the White Horse

Book cover
A poem by an English author and journalist of the beginning of the 20th century, Gilbert Keith Chesterton. This ballad relates of a favorite legend of the times of the King Edward, legend of a White Horse, the symbol of victory. It begins with the description of the White Horse of the White Horse Vale in England, and narrates about King Alfred, who is going to recruit an army and fight the Danes. Chesterton uses this mysterious image of a Horse as a symbol of the traditions that guard the human race.
What makes the book more valuable is the fact, that it is one of the last great epic poems in the English language.
