Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This verse translation of Yvain; or, The Knight with the Lion brings to life a fast-paced yet remarkably subtle work often considered to be the masterpiece of the twelfth-century French writer Chrétien de Troyes. The creator of the Arthurian romance as a genre, Chrétien is revealed in this work as a witty, versatile writer who mastered both the soaring flight of emotion and the devastating aside and was as skillful a debater of the finer points of love as he was a describer of battles.

Synopsis:

This verse translation of Yvain; or, The Knight With The Lion brings to life a fastpaced yet remarkably subtle work that is often considered to be the masterpiece of the twelfth-century French writer Chretien de Troyes.
