ADVENTURES IN AN OTHER-WORLDLY NEW-AGE VENICE.
It is the year 1537. The great winged Lion stares over a Venice where magic thrives. The rich Venetian Republic is a bastion of independence and tolerance. Perhaps for that reason, it is also corrupt, and rotten with intrigue.
But for the young brothers Marco and Benito Valdosta, vagabond and thief, Venice is simply-home. They have no idea that they stand at the center of the city's coming struggle for its very life. They know nothing of the powerful forces moving in the background. They have barely heard of Chernobog, demonlord of the North, who is shifting his pawns to attack Venice in order to cut into the underbelly of the Holy Roman Empire. All Marco and Benito know is that they're hungry and in dangerous company: Katerina the smuggler, Caesare the sell-sword, Montagnard assassins, church inquisitors, militant Knights of the Holy Trinity, Dottore Marina the Strega mage . . . and Maria. Maria might be an honest canaler, but she had the hottest temper a boy could find.

Katerina Clark "The Soviet novel: History as ritual"

In its sure grasp of a huge subject and in its speculative boldness, Professor Clark's study represents a major breakthrough. It sends one back to the original texts with a whole host of new questions…. And it also helps us to understand the place of the 'official' writer in that peculiar mixture of ideology, collective pressure, and inspiration which is the Soviet literary process."

An excellent translation (which) keeps readers close to the mentality of the original author. MODERN LANGUAGE REVIEW An excellent translation by an experienced scholar. MEDIUM AEVUMA superb translation and edition of arguably the most important Iwein manuscript. Edward's translation represents the greatest contribution to scholars and, especially, to the many non-Germanists who are dependent on reliable English translations. (This) very fine English rendering is, in terms of scientific quality, superior to all other Iwein translations into modern English or German. Edwards' quite exceptional translation and careful edition of MS B make this volume essential for all serious scholars of Hartmann's Iwein and the medieval Ywain tradition. ARTHURIANA, A stunning translation that somehow manages to achieve the impossible: it sounds both medieval and contemporary.
