Inscription to previous owner inside front cover, contents clean and unmarked, slight wear to covers. Chretien is where the literary tradition of the Arthurian romance can be seen to begin. . . . His poems are the earliest we have that portray knights errant questing through dangerous forests to challenge unknown opponents and to learn the meaning of love. . . . Staines [also] provides the first, and only, English translation of "Guillaume d'Angeleterre" [and] it is very good to have it available.--Times Literary Supplement 576 pages. Quantity Available: 1.
