Ulrich von Liechtenstein's Service of ladies by Ulrich( Book )

18 editions published between 1969 and 2004 in English and German and held by 391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ulrich von Liechtenstein's extraordinary account of his adventures as a knight-errant is one of the most vivid images of chivalric life to have come down to us. His knightly autobiography was written in the mid-thirteenth century, and gives an account of the 'journey of Venus' which he undertook in 1226 in honour of his lady, in which he claimed to have broken three hundred and seven spears in jousts against all comers in the space of a month. Parts of Ulrich's narrative are plainly quietly exaggerated, written for his friends' entertainment many years later; and he is not above a sly dig at the conventions of courtly love, although he accepts completely its basic ideas. His tale is full of lively episodes and good stories, as well as verses in honour of his lady: if it has been polished up for effect, it is nonetheless a thoroughly entertaining account of how a knight saw his ideal career in the jousting field."--Cover
