A Look Inside
Main Description
Studies showing the influence of the French Arthurian romances of Chretien de Troyes on German medieval literature.
Main Description
The pre-eminent role of Chretien de Troyes in the formation of Arthurian romance is reflected in the swift and brilliant response of German courtly poets to his works. Within a few years of their composition, Erec et Enide and Yvain were adapted for German audiences by Hartmann von Aue, while Chretien's unfinished Grail-story was taken up by Wolfram von Eschenbach and brought to a triumphant conclusion in Parzival. In this volume a distinguished international team of scholars contrast the treatment and reception of the stories in Germany with their French originals.BR>Contributors: E.M.MELETINSKY, MICHAEL BATTS, SILVIA RANAWAKE, W.H.JACKSON, H.B.WILSON, KAREN PRATT, MARTIN H.
