Dylan takes the Brothers Murph through the first ever French epic poem and it is a doozy. We follow the story of Roland, a man who is so courageous and honorable, that he gets a ton of people killed because he couldn't bring himself to blow a horn for reinforcements. This story has gone on to inspire characters that we all love and hold dear and we wouldn't have them if not for this very bloody tale.
