Book Description

April 1975
This verse translation of "Yvain; or, The Knight with the Lion" brings to life a fast-paced yet remarkably subtle work often considered to be the masterpiece of the twelfth-century French writer Chretien de Troyes. The creator of the Arthurian romance as a genre, Chretien is revealed in this work as a witty, versatile writer who mastered both the soaring flight of emotion and the devastating aside and was as skillful a debater of the finer points of love as he was a describer of battles.

Review

"Cline's translation shows a remarkable appreciation of Chretien's genius; she succeeds splendidly in capturing his witty style, irony, playfulness."--"Book Exchange"

i was forced to read this for my Middle Ages class and it was the only story that i actually like from it. It is a great story and has an interesting main character. If you like fantasy stories with dragons and magic this is a perfect read.
