Summary

"(A)n eminently readable text, done clearly and accurately . . . it gives as good an idea as a translation can of the complexity and subtlety of Chretien's originals. . . . (T)his translation should attract a wide audience of students and Arthurian enthusiasts."
-- Speculum


"(A) significant contribution to the field of medieval studies [and] a pleasure to read."
-- Library Journal

"These are, above all, stories of courtly love and of knights tested in their devotion to chivalric ideals (with passion and duty often at odds); but they are also thrilling wonder stories of giants, wild men, tame lions, razor-sharp bridges and visits to the Other World."
-- Washington Post Book World

"This tastefully produced book will be the standard general translation for many years to come."
-- Choice

" . . . an excellent rendering of the texts . . . an eminently readable text, done clearly and accurately in an English style that presents few infelicities and that is just slightly more formal than that of Kibler's . . . it gives as good an idea as a translation can of the complexity and subtlety of Chretien's originals . . . The text is provided by a translator who understands the spirit as well as the letter of the original and renders it with style . . . this translation should attract a wide audience of students and Arthurian enthusiasts . . . "
-- Speculum
