147 editions published between 1884 and 2018 in 8 languages and held by 4,368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cligès is a poem by the medieval French poet Chrétien de Troyes, dating from around 1176. It is the second of his five Arthurian romances; Erec and Enide, Cligès, Yvain, Lancelot and Perceval. The poem tells the story of the knight Cligès and his love for his uncle's wife, Fenice
Lancelot, the knight of the cart by Chrétien( Book )

277 editions published between 1849 and 2019 in 8 languages and held by 4,077 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This poem was the first to introduce Lancelot as an important figure in the King Arthur legend. Lancelot tells of the adulterous relationship between the knight and his mistress, Guinevere, the wife of King Arthur. Thematically this poem differs from Chretien's other romances - Lancelot and Guinevere's love is a serious crime against their king, Lancelot casts aside his knightly ideals and reputation for the sake of his beloved, and Arthur is endowed with a weaker personality

11 editions published between 1916 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A twelfth-century poem by the creator of the Arthurian romance describes the courageous exploits and triumphs of a brave lord who tries to win back his deserted wife's love
Erec and Enide by Chrétien( Book )

30 editions published between 1987 and 2019 in 4 languages and held by 2,281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this new verse translation of one of the great works of French literature, Dorothy Gilbert captures the vivacity, wit, and grace of the first known Arthurian romance. Erec and Enide is the story of the quest and coming of age of a young knight, an illustrious member of Arthur's court, who must learn to balance the demands of a masculine public life-tests of courage, skill, adaptability, and mature judgment-with the equally urgent demands of the private world of love and marriage. We see his wife, Enide, develop as an exemplar of chivalry in the female, not as an Amazon, but as a brav
Perceval : the story of the grail by Chrétien( )

12 editions published between 1982 and 2008 in English and held by 2,034 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the story of the Grail. Perceval progresses from a naive boyhood in rural seclusion to a position of high respect as a knight at King Arthur's court
Four Arthurian romances by Chrétien( )

12 editions published between 2000 and 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,842 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chr?tien de Troyes' Four Arthurian Romances continued and expanded on existing Arthurian legends, but began the Arthurian Romance genre, so popular in Medieval literature. His tales often diverge from Arthur himself, focussing instead on the characters of his court. Chretien introduced Sir Lancelot and also the Holy Grail to the Arthurian legends. He is considered the first major French novelist

The complete story of the Grail : Chrétien de Troyes' "Perceval" and its continuations by Chrétien( )

12 editions published between 2015 and 2018 in English and held by 515 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The mysterious and haunting Grail makes its first appearance in literature in Chřtien de Troyes' Perceval at the end of the twelfth century. But Chřtien never finished his poem, leaving an unresolved story and an incomplete picture of the Grail. It was, however, far too attractive an idea to leave. Not only did it inspire quite separate works; his own unfinished poem was continued and finally completed by no fewer than four other writers. The Complete Story of the Grail is the first ever translation of the whole of the rich and compelling body of tales contained in Chřtien's poem and its four Continuations, which are finally attracting the scholarly attention they deserve. Besides Chřtien's original text, there are the anonymous First Continuation (translated here in its fullest version), the Second Continuation attributed to Wauchier de Denain, and the intriguing Third and Fourth Continuations - probably written simultaneously, with no knowledge of each other's work - by Manessier and Gerbert de Montreuil. Two other poets were drawn to create preludes explaining the background to Chřtien's story, and translated here also are their works: The Elucidation Prologue and Bliocadran. Only in this, The Story of the Grail's complete form, can the reader appreciate the narrative skill and invention of the medieval poets and their surprising responses to Chřtien's theme - not least their crucial focus on the knight as a crusader. Equally, Chřtien's original poem was almost always copied in conjunction with one or more of the Continuations, so this translation represents how most medieval readers would have encountered it. --

73 editions published between 1942 and 2019 in 5 languages and held by 422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Yvain est l'histoire d'aventures chevaleresques et de la quête pour retrouver son amour
Œuvres complètes by Chrétien( Book )

17 editions published between 1994 and 2009 in French and held by 417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le fondateur d'un art de conter et d'un univers à conter (autour d'un roi, Arthur, d'une cour que résume un symbole, la Table Ronde, et de quelques héros auxquels s'identifier pour se perdre dans un éternel hier), un poète, un maître, un écrivain : tel est Chrétien de Troyes. Du reste, de sa vie, de son visage, on ignore tout. On sait seulement ceci : il vécut à la fin du XIIe siècle dans la première ville de Champagne et il laisse cinq des dix romans les plus importants de son époque, un style à imiter, des modèles à admirer, des questions à résoudre
Erec et Enide by Chrétien( Book )

88 editions published between 1856 and 2017 in 9 languages and held by 414 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Suffit-il qu'un chevalier valeureux et qu'une belle et sage jeune fille se rencontrent, connaissent l'éblouissement au premier regard puis s'épousent pour que tout soit dit sur le mariage et l'amour ? Certes non, car l'aventure aura tôt fait de les rattraper et, avec elle, les épreuves et le doute : le salut et la joie sont à ce prix... Erec et Enide, qui inaugure la merveilleuse série des récits arthuriens, est le premier véritable roman de notre littérature. -- []
