"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

"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
