Lq being said, I really enjoyed this one. Possibly a native of Troyes, he enjoyed patronage there from the Countess Marie of Champagne before dedicating his last romance to Count Philip of Flanders, perhaps about This tale is especially intriguing because it is the first time the character of Lancelot appears in the legends, so seeing his kind is origin story unfold is really fascinating.

Nevertheless, this book is definitely worth a read. I unapologetically love Arthurian romance and it was great to read the “origin” story of Lancelot. However, the poem was tremendously influential—prior to it, Lancelot had had a very meagre biography, but afterwards, he became the major knight of the Round Table.

I should know, I just went hunting around Google to try and find one, but it seems its plain green binding is original and not an idiosyncrasy of the library.

I knew all about Lancelot and Guinevere’s affair going into the story so that didn’t surprise me in the least, but I liked the adventure Lancelot had to go on to find and save Guinevere.

This edition is pretty great; it’s a modern translation of a stage of French that non-trained modern readers wouldn’t understand, and since it’s a high school edition, it also comes with notes and explanatory texts at the end.

I like better bittersweet or tragic endings rather than cheerful ones, and the predictability of the last fight bothered me a little. Absolutely loved the story, but trying to keep it so rigidly in the poetic form made for incredibly awkward couplets. There is no hint of any idealistic conflict within Lancelot, as there is in later versions of the story. Please click the link in that email to activate your subscription.

hroyes Of course the very “knightly” things Lancelot does can see a little weird- like agreeing to return to his prisoner after the tournamen I should preface this by saying that I really love Arthurian legends.

Packed with action, quick pace, filled with drama and medieval heroism, it also leaves room for different interpretations, such as the view it gives on the issue of courtly love, which can easily provoke carreya discussion that may never be resolved.

Dec 29, Tyron Van Geest rated it really liked it. Arthur is a typical cuckold, weak, ineffectual, and pathetic—perhaps carreat comic. All the interesting stuff happens in later versions. A must read for literary lovers who want to follow through the history of literature and its place in history.

Since they are out of copyright, these translations are now being reprinted, complete or one at a time. This comment sets the whole adventure in a Harrowing of Hell mode, where Lancelot stands in for Christ, redeeming those souls ensnared by Satan through no fault of their own.

The story is presented like a succession of ordeals the hero will endure or overcome. Oct 05, Bess rated it it was amazing. What may also surprise the modern reader is the amount of female characters, who actually aren’t merely decorative, and how unsqueamish they all are.

It should also be noted that women are not relegated to the background or to the role of damsel in distress. This is the old, and obsolete, W.

,a I always had a soft spot for the Middle-Ages and our romanticised idea of it. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. The focus in this story is all on Lancelot, Gauvain and Guinevere.

Want to Read saving…. The first pits an emotion against an intellectual capacity; the debate is essentially one between sense and sensibility. I also have to add that the conclusion gives no answer about the Lancelot-Guinevere love story; I wish there was a sequel to let us know if Arthur discover them and what will be his reaction! Comfort prose translation from the early twentieth century: Each of these debates sets up a particular duality.

Of course the very “knightly” things Lancelot does can see a little weird- like agreeing to lw to his prisoner after the tournament and actually fulfilling that promise- but that is part of what makes this story just a good knight story.

The tale is still entertaining nowadays, there is no reason to be worried about its age more than years old.

Ainsi donc, le brave Lancelot, meilleur chevalier d’entre tous les chevaliers, se ridiculise au nom de son amour pour la reine.

Arthur is just a king in the background. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. Par contre les scenes d’amour son pudiques, fade-to-black.

This is not as boring a read as one may think compared to other medieval texts. But none of the story is specific to Lancelot.
