    Chrétien de Troyes
    Chr tien de Troyes, commonly regarded as the father of Arthurian romance and a key figure in Western literature, composed in French in the latter part of the twelfth century Virtually nothing is known of his life 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 1182 His poetry is marked by a learning and a taste for dialectic acquired in Latin schools but at the same time it reveals a warm human sympathy which breathes life into characters and situations Whilst much of his matter is inherited from the world of Celtic myth and the events notionally unfold in the timeless reign of King Arthur, the society and customs are those of Chr tien s own day In his last, unfinished work, Perceval, the mysterious Grail makes its first appearance in literature.

    C'est un roman de l'amour.Il y a une recherche de trouver et garder une place qui se pose pour un jeune homme noble, destine a la royaute, fils du roi Lac, Erec qui cherche a briller. Il s'agit de garder cette aureole d'excellence et de retrouver son Enide blanche, symbole de la chasse au blanc cerf du debut du conte dont l'aventure Erec a manque. Il s'agit pour Erec de retrouver l'equilibre,et sauver l'honneur de la royaute, une offense faite a la reine Guenievre et cette aventure se revele tel [...]

    Je donnerais 5 étoiles sans hésiter à Chrétien de Troyes, mais je suis très déçu par ce recueil, premièrement du fait que son titre m’avait laissé croire qu’il contenait l’ensemble des romans de la table ronde, alors qu’il fallait plutôt le comprendre au sens où il en contient plus d’un. De manière plus précise, le recueil contient des extraits d’Érec et Énide, de Cligès ou la Fausse Morte, de même que l’entièreté de Lancelot le chevalier à la charrette (avec un [...]

    How can you possibly review a collection of stories which are more than 800 years old and which were a huge influence on Arthurian legend as a whole?You can't. I think ratings and reviews should compare books to others within the same general area. There would be no point comparing an ancient Greek play, a biography, a YA vampire novel, an academic study and so on to each other because they aren't comparable. I've decided to give Four Arthurian Romances a rating of four stars on this basis. Held [...]

    How do you write a review of a classice that set the stage for a thousand King Arthur stories to follow? Each one follows a distinct troubadour-esque storyline of an undefeatable hero, who has the love and adoration of a Special Lady. Each one has a variationexcept the one that is written by his patroness, Marie, Countess of Champagne (Eleanor of Aquitaine's daughter). That one is about Lancelot and Guinevere, and involves the heroic knight actually sleeping with Guinevere, and uh, no one tells [...]

    There are some great stories in here that I am surprised are not already depicted in movies and art. The idea of a man crossing a bridge that is a sword is incredible. The story of Cliges and the faithful Fenice is romantic. Poor Enide is the most noble lady I have read of in King Arthur's Court. Yvain was sort of a moron, but I was interested to see the element of the ring-giving and the promising to return in a year since it is common in Norse and English fairy tales.

    I assume that the language is more fluid in old French, as it was originally written. Based on the fact that I still followed what was going on easily and was still amused by the jokes and over the top dramatics, I'd say it was a very worthwhile read and a good way to expand my knowledge of the time period and of Arthurian legends.

    I was doing okay on this until I hit the last (and longest) story, which was just too much for me. It's interesting to read, being of such a different era, but my modern sensibilities got in the way too much to let me really enjoy it.Marking as done so it doesn't haunt me on forever.

    This is the first published work about King Arthur, Lancelot and ultimately the Grail Quest. What a great piece of legend and poetic genius! Marie of France commissioned much of his work and perhaps instructed the content. Withstands all tests!

    There's an awful lot of superfluous words in these stories! I'm sure they'd all be at least half as long if they were written today. ;-)

    Loved these stories. The poetry of them was soothing and beautiful. Story's could be considered 'cute'. Doesn't really capture interest too much.

    Vive le Moyen Âge et ses idéaux courtois.

    Some of these stories are better than others.

    Ellie
    Arthurian Romances have always been my favorite and though each one was wonderful, Erec et Enide and Yvain are my favorite.

    Nathan
    French romance (in translation) about Arthurian figures. Subtle and surprising, Chretien composes colorful tales that are part morality fable and part heroic odyssey.

    Lindsey
    This book has everything: lovesick knights, fierce damsels, magic, drama. A really great collection of Arthurian stories.
