Arthurian Romances

Erec and Enide; Cliges; Lancelot; Yvain; Perceval

An idyllically happy marriage in which a husband is so involved that he neglects his duties as a knight; love endangered by a husband who is more interested in athletic chivalry than his wife; timorous young love ; and adulterous passion –together these stories offer the most complete expression of French chivalry and of courtly love.

chretien de Troyes did not invent the Arthurian legend: he gave it sophisticated literary form, establishing it as major branch of European literature. Without chretien we might today scarcely have heard of King Arthur and his brave company.
