The Quest of the Holy Grail, Paperback / softback Book

The Quest of the Holy Grail Paperback / softback

Edited by Judith Shoaf


The Old French Lancelot-Graal is an important but massive work, providing a place for King Arthur not only in the history of Britain but also in Christian history.

This new translation of one section, the Quest of the Holy Grail, will be a flexible addition to courses on medieval literature or romance.

The notes and guides are designed to help readers enjoy the text while appreciating its relationship to social and literary history.

Appendices include translations of material from two of Chretien de Troyes's romances (Perceval and Yvain); translations from other parts of the Lancelot-Grail Cycle (the early history of the Grail and the conception of Galahad); and excerpts from apocryphal works (from French versions written at about the same time as the Quest).
