The Romance of Tristran by Beroul and Beroul II : Student Edition and English Translation Paperback / softback

Description

The tragic tale of the lovers Tristran and Iseut, a Celtic story that eventually became part of the Arthurian legend, was one the most popular themes of medieval literature, in numerous languages.

One of its earliest appearances is the late-twelfth-century Romance of Tristran, written in Old French by Beroul.

This volume contains a new, accessible English prose translation of the poem, complete with explanatory notes, based on Sargent-Baur's latest critical edition of the text.

A valuable teaching resource for classes in medieval or comparative literature, The Romance of Tristran by Beroul and Beroul II: Student Edition and English Translation will be of interest to anyone fascinated by the origins of Arthurian legend or the literature of the high middle ages.
