Editorial Reviews

Review

"Cline's verse gives far more a sense that Chrétien composed poetic narrative. Highly recommended."--Forum for Modern Language Studies


"There must be room for a rhymed verse translation of Lancelot; I doubt if we shall see a better one."--French Studies


"Cline has managed a tour de force . . . her lilting translations are trend-setting in the translation of medieval material."--Translation Review


"It certainly is a tour de force . . . for those who prefer verse, this presentation has much to recommend it."--Modern Language Review

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By J. Brownell on August 10, 2005
Format: Paperback
This is a fascinating epic, meticulously translated and annotated by Cline. It seems to be amazing how much you can learn about some of the most cherished tropes in Arthurian legend by reading this, but this is ultimately unsurprising as The Knight of the Cart was the original source of the Arthur-Guinevere-Lancelot love triangle. It is packed with magical imagery, dark humour, and, of course, fatal flaws. I wish I could read Old French so that I could have a better familiarity with the original text!
