In this verse translation of Chretien de Troyes's "Lancelot," Ruth Harwood Cline revives the original story of the immortal love affair between Sir Lancelot and Queen Guinevere, a tale that has spawned interpretations ranging from Malory's "Le Morte d'Arthur" to Lerner and Lowe's "Camelot." By remaining faithful to Chretien's highly structured form, Cline preserves the pace, the pungency of proverbial expressions, and the work's poetical devices and word play in translating this archetypal tale of courtly love from Old French into modern English. Cline's introduction--containing a description of Arthur in history and literature, a discussion of courtly love, and an account of the continuations of the story of Lancelot and Guinevere--makes Lancelot an ideal classroom text.

Author of early Arthurian romances, Chretien de Troyes was born in France around 1150. Little is known about this important medieval writer. Chretien's poems can not be dated, except to say that they were written sometime in the second half of the twelfth century. Some of his other work has been lost or their authorship is disputed. Chretien's most famous works, "Lancelot" and "Perceval," have all the ingredients of Celtic legend, and pay homage to the Holy Grail. Chretien also composed a famous version of Tristan and Isolde. During his life, Chretien enjoyed the patronage of Marie de Champagne, the daughter of Philip of Flanders and Eleanor of Aquitaine. Although it is not confirmed, it is believed that he died in Paris in 1190.
