Sinopsis:

Erec and Enide marks the birth of the Arthurian romance as a literary genre. Written circa 1170, this version of the Griselda legend tells the story of the marriage of Erec, a handsome and courageous Welsh prince and knight of the Round Table, and Enide, an impoverished noblewoman. When the lovers become estranged because Erec neglects his knightly obligations, they subsequently ride off together on a series of adventures that culminate in their reconciliation and the liberation of a captive knight in an enchanted orchard.

An innovative poet working during a time of great literary creativity, Chrétien de Troyes wrote poems that had a lively pace, skillful structure, and vivid descriptive detail. Ruth Harwood Cline re-creates for modern audiences his irony, humor, and charm, while retaining the style and substance of the original octosyllabic couplets. Her thorough introduction includes discussions of courtly love and the Arthurian legend in history and literature, as well as a new and provocative theory about the identity of Chrétien de Troyes. This clearly presented translation, faithful in preserving the subtle expressive qualities of the original work, is accessible reading for any Arthurian legend aficionado and an ideal text for students of medieval literature.

From the Inside Flap:

"Ms. Gilbert's couplets read beautifully, encompassing Chrétien's range of tone—from wit to elevation of sentiment—very sensitively."—Charles Muscatine, author of Chaucer and the French Tradition

"A wonderfully accurate and witty translation of Chrétien's Erec and Enide which brilliantly renders the rhymed octosyllabics of the original text in compelling, colloquial English. . . . A treat not just for students and scholars of Old French literature but, more important, for what we now call general readers—that is, all those who relish a rollicking, well-told tale."—Sandra M. Gilbert, editor of The Norton Anthology of Literature by Women

"Older translations, generally in stupefying Maloryan prose, convey little of the sense of the poetry so obvious in the original, and admirably reproduced in this translation."—Robert Harrison, translator of Gallic Salt: Eighteen Fabliaux

"One of the best English verse renderings of any poem by Chrétien."—William J. Kibler, author of An Introduction to Old French

"A union of scholarship and consummate art that affected me like the great stories I read in my formative years; a permanent vicarious experience."—Ruth Stone, poet, author of Second-Hand Coat

"This will be a standard English translation of Erec and Enide and a definitive one."—Roger J. Steiner, editor of The New College French and English Dictionary
