Description

Erec and Enide; Cliges; Lancelot; Yvain; Perceval

An idyllically happy marriage in which a husband is so involved that he neglects his duties as a knight; love endangered by a husband who is more interested in athletic chivalry than his wife; timorous young love; and adulterous passion -- together these stories offer the most complete expression of French chivalry and of courtly love.

Chretien de Troyes did not invent the Arthurian legend: he gave it sophisticated literary form, establishing it as major branch of European literature. Without chretien we might today scarcely have heard of King Arthur and his brave company.

The most comprehensive paperback edition available, with introduction, notes and glossary
