He releases the wild iron-skinned man who reveals his name to be Iron John or Iron Hans depending on the translation.

Iron John too comes to the wedding. The prince fears he will be killed for setting Iron John free, so Iron John agrees to take the prince with him into the forest. The King sends all his remaining huntsmen out as a group, but again, none return.

The prince is returned to his former station, marries the princess, and is happily reunited with his parents. He sets the prince to watch over his well, but warns him not to let anything touch it or fall in because it will turn instantly to gold.

He calls upon Iron John who gives him a horse, armor, and a legion of iron warriors to fight alongside him.

Some years later, a wandering explorer accompanied by a dog hears of these dangerous woods and asks permission to hunt in the forest, claiming that he might be able to discover the fate of the other hunters. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. InRobert Bly analyzed the story in Iron John: Since he is ashamed of his golden hair, he refuses to remove eisfnhans cap before eiesnhans king and is sent to assist the gardener.


Most people see the story as a parable about a boy maturing into adulthood. Bly’s reading analyzes the story for lessons about masculinity applicable to 20th-century men, and became a major work of the mythopoetic men’s movement.

The prince successfully defends his new homeland, but returns all eisnehans he borrowed to Iron John before returning to his former position. Though the prince hesitates at first, he eventually builds up the courage to sneak into his mother’s room and steal the key. The king proclaims the woods as dangerous and off-limits to all. He states further that the only key to the cage is hidden beneath the queen’s pillow.
