“[A]n eminently readable text, done clearly and accurately . . . it gives as good an idea as a translation can of the complexity and subtlety of Chretien’s originals. . . . The text is provided by a translator who understands the spirit as well as the letter of the original and renders it with style. . . . [T]his translation should attract a wide audience of students and Arthurian enthusiasts.” -Speculum “[A] significant contribution to the field of medieval studies [and] a pleasure to read.” -Library Journal “These are, above all, stories of courtly love and of knights tested in their devotion to chivalric ideals (with passion and duty often at odds); but they are also thrilling wonder stories of giants, wild men, tame lions, razor-sharp bridges and visits to the Other World.” -Washington Post Book World “This tastefully produced book will be the standard general translation for many years to come.” -Choice This new translation brings to life for a new generation of readers the stories of King Arthur, Lancelot, Guinevere, Gawain, Perceval, Yvain, and the other “knights and ladies” of Chretien de Troyes’ famous romances. show more
