9781617205835: Four Arthurian Romances

Chrétien's works include five major poems in rhyming eight-syllable couplets. Four of these are complete; Erec and Enide (c. 1170); Cligès (c. 1176), and Yvain, the Knight of the Lion and Lancelot, the Knight of the Cart, both written simultaneously between 1177 and 1181. Chrétien's final romance was Perceval, the Story of the Grail, written between 1181 and 1190, but left unfinished, though some scholars have disputed this.

About the Author:

About the author: Chrétien de Troyes was a late 12th century French poet known for his work on Arthurian subjects, and for originating the character Lancelot. This work represents some of the best-regarded of medieval literature. His use of structure, particularly in Yvain, the Knight of the Lion, has been seen as a step towards the modern novel. Between 1160 and 1172 he served at the court of his patroness Marie of France, Countess of Champagne, daughter of Eleanor of Aquitaine.

About the translator : William Wistar Comfort (1874–1955) was president of Haverford College, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States. Born in Germantown, Pennsylvania and raised a Quaker, he from Haverford College in 1894 and from Harvard University with a Ph.D. in 1902. Ph.D. His thesis was titled: “The Development of the Character Types in the French Chansons de Geste.” He was a prolific writer and speaker on Quaker topics, but also on such diverse subjects as William Cowper, children’s stories, education and music.
