Jan 29, Kalina rated it really liked it. However, the poem was tremendously influential—prior to it, Lancelot had had a very meagre biography, but afterwards, he became the major knight of the Round Table. This edition is pretty great; it’s a modern translation of a stage of French that non-trained modern readers wouldn’t understand, and since it’s a high school edition, it also comes with notes and explanatory texts at the end. I also have to add that the conclusion gives no answer about the Lancelot-Guinevere love story; I wish there was a sequel to let us know if Arthur discover them and what will be his reaction!
En conclusion, un roman qui fait voyager dans le temps. Therefore, this Arthurian legend like the others, gives you a clue to the prevailing attitude in France that time.
All the interesting stuff happens in later versions. Arthur is a typical cuckold, weak, ineffectual, and pathetic—perhaps even comic. I should know, I just went hunting around Google to try and find one, but it seems its plain green binding is original and not an idiosyncrasy of the library. Not that it HAS a cover per se. All that we know about chivalry today and of our recent past seems to be rooted from the beginning of the medieval age to which this work belongs and France’s enlightenment movement seems to almost had been predicted long before its time as seen in this plot wherein the queen decided to choose reason over emotion in lancepot reaction towards seeing Lancelot in Arthur’s court after a year of imprisonment, seeming to bring conclusion to their adulterous affair.

Since they are out of copyright, these translations are now being reprinted, complete or one at a time. But none of the story is specific to Lancelot. Erec and Enide was cabxllero a knight reconciling his marriage with his life of chivalry, Yvain about a knight reconciling his life of chivalry cabaklero his marriage. 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.
However, the last 20 or so pages felt somewhat jarring. Oct 05, Bess rated it it was amazing.
Clearly medieval Twitter was hard at work or something. Au final, j’ai failli m’ennuyer, alors que le texte ne fait que cent pages. There’s really a lot of action in this story, some fair retribution featuring the cutting off of arms, crushing of teeth and an ultimate decapitation, to everyone’s great delight, because these were the Middle Agessome sex, attempts at seduction and general fighting.

Virtually nothing is known of his life. This comment sets the whole adventure in a Harrowing of Hell mode, where Lancelot stands in for Christ, redeeming those souls ensnared by Satan through no fault of their own.
The very last part — the last verses on the or so total — was written by an other author of the same period to give a more cheerful end to the story.

I unapologetically love Arthurian romance and it was great to read the “origin” story of Lancelot. The Knight of the Cart General comments 1 2 Jun 11, No hay quien no se burle de este al momento en que todos se enteran de su infortunio, actitud que va cambiando a medida que transcurre el accionar de la novela. I like better bittersweet or tragic endings rather than cheerful ones, and the predictability of the last fight bothered me a little. crareta
Nevertheless, this book is definite While this felt like a typically medieval story with some flaws that the modern critic may find problematic, I found it remarkably enjoyable. Lancelot is still endlessly pathetic and everybody needs to get a grip and learn to fact-check instead of believing every rumour they hear to the point of wanting to die because of bad news.
It is a world with nothing in common with our own, therefore unfamiliar and prone to work our imagination.
There is no hint of any idealistic conflict within Lancelot, as there is in later versions of the story. Definitely know this text well enough, though this is a new edition and translation to me — the one I read before rhymed, and it was quite nice to read one that didn’t because it felt Oh, woe is me that none of these editions are properly set up on Goodreads but I don’t have the authority to edit them Quite the opposite, excepted the main character, the key characters of the story are mostly women.
Absolutely loved the story, but trying to keep it so rigidly in the poetic form made for incredibly awkward couplets. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. Lancelot finally kills Meleagent, and that’s the end. What may also surprise the modern reader is the amount of female characters, who actually aren’t merely decorative, and how unsqueamish they all are.
Lists with This Book. Nevertheless, this book is definitely worth a read. I knew all about Lancelot and Guinevere’s affair going into the story so that didn’t surprise me in the least, but I liked caballedo adventure Lancelot had to go on to find and save Guinevere.
