"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
