Still stands the destined Knight, aloof in his passionate patience,The editor, John Matthews, tells us that, at the beginning of the twelfth century, the poet Crétien de Troyes composed a poem he called Il Conte del Graal (“The Story of the Grail”). It told the story of a search taken up by a simple young man who was brought up away from the ways of ordinary people. His search was for a mysterious object known as the “Graal,” but Crétien left the poem unfinished, dying before he could complete it, thus creating a mystery that has stirred the imagination of countless seekers ever since.
His hand over his eyes? Is he doomed to fulfil or fail?
Shall he dare the hells and the heavens of the strange illuminations,
Initiate at last of the dread mysterious Graal?
