    Story
    (42)

    During the reign of Richard I, Wilfred of Ivanhoe earns his father's disapproval by falling in love with Rowena, his father's ward. His father had planned to wed her himself, and reestablish the Saxon line.

    Tobin says: "A great classic romance/adventure"
    "Shockingly Anti-Sem[tic"
    Overall

    I was shocked by how strong the anti-semitic sentiment was in this book. I was so put off by this that it ruined any enjoyment I might have had in the story. I realize that this book was written during a different time when people's beliefs were very different, but when is enough enough. Just as old way of thinking give way to new ideas so should old literature.
