love this version. the tranlsator translated it into rhyming verse. i also like the story which shows chretien's attitude towards love, unlike that of tristan and yseut
splendid translation; she makes the reader love Chretien July 27 2014
By Roger W. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Ruth Harwood Cline's translations are absolute magic. She makes the reader love Chretien de Troyes. How she gets his rhymed lines (in the original old French) into rhymed English verse that absolutely works and reads so well is a miracle to me. This long epic poem is one of the Arthurian legends that Cline has translated (all of them) and the quality is uniformly outstanding. Can't be beat.

As noted, Ruth Harwood Cline has translated all of Chretien Troyes Arthurian romances -- there are five, all available in paperback -- and they are all equally good. I read them all.
