More Description

" 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.
