I am probably one of the few who hold Link’s Awakening as their favorite Zelda title. It was the one that introduced me to the world of adventure and the one that, to this day, has had the most impact on my love of the series. I still get a little teary-eyed when I hear the Ballad of the Wind Fish. Unsurprisingly, it is the one that I have replayed the most as well. As I’ve gotten older and studied more in the world of literature, I've found something that makes me love the game even more: The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening takes inspiration from medieval English literature.
