9781843841616: A Companion to Chrétien de Troyes (Arthurian Studies)

Chrétien de Troyes is arguably the creator of Arthurian romance, and it is on his work that later writers have based their interpretations. This book offers both crucial information on, and a comprehensive coverage of, all aspects of the work of Chrétien de Troyes - the literary and historical background, patronage, his influence on other writers, manuscripts and editions of his work and, at the heart of the volume, major essays on the themes, techniques and artistic achievements in each of his compositions; the contributions, all from leading experts in Chrétien and related studies, have been commissioned especially for this volume and are designed to remain accessible to students while also addressing specialists in Arthurian studies and Chrétien de Troyes. They reflect the most current critical and scholarly views on one of the greatest of medieval authors.

For specialists and non-specialists alike this must be the ultimate Chrétien vademecum. --Pendragon

[It] captures beautifully the richness and variety of Chrétien research. Reading through A Companion to Chrétien de Troyes is like taking a dream course on Chrétien. The contributors' expertise ensures an abundance of thought-provoking material, leading to a collection that deserves a place in every academic library. --The French Review

Students will find this volume comprehensive and informative. --French Studies
