From the Walter Scott poem \"The Bridal of Triermain.\" ...A twelfth-century knight hears the legend of King Arthurs daughter and sets out to awaken Gyneth from her five hundred-year sleep and win her hand. When he arrives at the castle he finds.... All seem\'d to sleep -- the timid hare On form, the stag upon his lair, The eagle in her eyrie fair Between the earth and sky. But what of pictured rich and rare Could win De Vaux\'s eye-glance, where, Deep slumbering in the fatal chair, He saw King Arthur\'s child!\"

Our Approach:
Here at The Athenaeum, we work very hard to make this site a sanctuary from the commercial web. We want to provide 99% of our content for free (and currently, *all* of it is free), and not to blast you with advertising. However, we are not a rich company or foundation. This site is a labour of love produced over many years by a couple of people. Since late 2000 when we started the site, we have invested thousands of dollars of our personal money to keep it going. Currently, the hosting service costs us about $200 a month. If you would like to support The Athenaeum, you can donate directly through Paypal below, or shop using any of the links on this page.
