Summary of Marco Polo Seasons 1-2 DVD
The British scholar Ronald Latham has pointed out that The Book of Marvels was in fact a collaboration written in 1298–1299 between Polo and a professional writer of romances, Rustichello of Pisa.Rustichello's intention was to use today's language, to write a best-seller, and as such he preferred to stress the fantastic,Marco Polo Seasons 1-2 DVD bizarre and the romantic at the expense of accuracy.Latham has argued that today it is difficult to tell precisely just how much of The Book of Marvels was Polo and how much Rustichello.However, it is firmly established that the book was written in the same "leisurely, conversational style" that characterized Rustichello's other books, which would very strongly suggest that The Book of Marvels was written by Rustichello with Polo just merely reminiscing about his travels to him.Likewise,Marco Polo Seasons 1-2 the opening introduction in The Book of Marvels to "emperors and kings, dukes and marquises" was lifted straight out of an Arthurian romance Rustichello had written several years earlier, and many of the episodes in The Book of Marvels were taken out of the same Arthurian romance to be reset in China.
