Parzival by Wolfram( Book )

149 editions published between 1897 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 558 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A new translation of Parzival, together with the fragments of Titurel, an elegiac offshoot of Parzival, and the nine love-songs attributed to Wolfram. Vast in its scope, incomparably dense in its imagery, Wolfram von Eschenback's Parzival ranks alongside Dante's Divine Comedy as one of the foremost narrative works to emerge from medieval Europe." "Parzival is the greatest of the medieval Grail romances. In its depth and complexity of characterisation this work of the early thirteenth century anticipates the modern novel. It encompasses deed of chivalry, tournaments and sieges, courtly love, and other erotic undertakings, but also sin and penance, and a deeply moving study in depression. Centre stage are the Grail Castle and Arthur's Round Table, but the pagan world of the Orient is also reflected." "Parzival has inspired and influenced works as diverse as Wagner's Parsifal and Lohengrin, Franz Kafka's The Castle, Terry Jones's film The Fisher King, and Umberto Eco's Baudolino. Cyril Edwards's thoughtful translation vividly conveys the power of this complex, wide-ranging medieval masterpiece."--BOOK JACKET
