MoreExcerpt from Ernest RenanBrittany, the green and gray land where, ac cording to legend, Merlin the enchanter lies in a magic sleep under the white thorn near Paim pol - this rock-bound, sea-beaten coast, famous for its storms and its disasters - has given birth to men who, while in language they were French or Latin, kept the Celtic heart, and charmed the world with Celtic eloquence.

In the early Mid dle Ages, Abelard, born at Palais near Nantes in 1079, lived out his romance amid the battle-cries that ushered in, on the site of the Latin Quarter at Paris, a great secular period, the term of which none may foresee. Abelard is the first of modem thinkers, pointing the way through scholastic mazes to Renaissance and Revolution. He is Yea and Nay, Sic et non, alive to both sides of an argument, subtle, proud, self-determined, unhap py, and he stores up an inheritance which others turn to better account. He is the most illustrious of Bretons, yet a rebel against Church authority.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
