As soon as their forms became somewhat settled, then literature was possible, and all these speeches bud and blossom into song and romance. Not surprisingly, the love it glorifies occurs outside of marriage. The old civilization of imperial Rome left a powerful cultural footprint. He left his home and mediated, fasted, and went without water. When Mark discovers Tristan and Isolt lying with a naked sword between them, he persuades himself of their innocence: "’Tis the blindness of love that will close its eyes to that which it would not see." (Gottfried 217) The King cannot find peace in life; a pitiful figure, he wavers between the bitter truth and the comfort of illusion.
