"Moult a Sans et Vallour" studies in Medieval French literature in honor of William W. Kibler by Monica L Wright ( )
5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
William W. Kibler is one of the most productive and versatile medievalists of his generation. Some scholars and students think of him primarily as a specialist in the medieval epic, whereas others consider him to be an Arthurian scholar. He is of course both, but he is also much more: a consummate philologist and editor of texts and also a prolific and accomplished translator. Above all, those who know him best know him as an extraordinarily generous and modest man. The present volume represents an effort by thirty medievalists, specialists in fields as diverse as William Kibler?s interests, t

The Romance of Arthur by James J Wilhelm ( Book )
6 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Romance of Arthur, James J. Wilhelm's classic anthology of Arthurian literature, is an essential text for students of the medieval Romance tradition. This fully updated third edition presents a comprehensive reader, mapping the course of Arthurian literature, and is expanded to cover: key authors such as Chrétien de Troyes and Thomas of Britain, as well as Arthurian texts by women and more obscure sources for Arthurian romance ; extensive coverage of key themes and characters in the tradition ; a wide geographical range of texts including translations from Latin, French, German, Spanish, Welsh, Middle English, and Italian sources ; a broad chronological range of texts, encompassing nearly a thousand years of Arthurian romance. Norris J. Lacy builds on the book's source material, presenting readers with a clear introduction to many accessible modern-spelling versions of Arthurian texts. The extracts are presented in a new reader-friendly format with detailed suggestions for further reading and illustrations of key places, figures, and scenes. The Romance of Arthur provides an excellent introduction and an extensive resource for both students and scholars of Arthurian literature."--Publisher's website

The Grail, the quest and the world of Arthur by Norris J Lacy ( Book )
4 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Exploring French, Dutch, Norse, German and English texts, literary scholars and art historians discuss medieval quest themes, especially but not exclusively the quest for the Holy Grail. A number of the essays trace the relationship, often negative, between Arthurian chivalry and the Grail ethos. Whereas most of the contributors reflect on the popularity of the Grail quest, several examine the comparative rarity of the Grail in certain literatures and define the elaboration of quest motifs severed from the Grail material"--Publisher description

A companion to Chrétien de Troyes ( Book )
4 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Chretien de Troyes is arguably the creator of Arthurian romance, and it is on his work that later writers have based their interpretations." "This book offers both crucial information on, and a comprehensive coverage of, all aspects of the work of Chretien de Troyes - the literary and historical background, patronage, his influence on other writers, manuscripts and editions of his work and, at the heart of the volume, major essays on his themes, techniques and artistic achievements in each of his compositions."--Jacket
