In this verse translation of Chrtien de Troyess Lancelot, Ruth Harwood Cline revives the original story of the immortal love affair between Sir Lancelot and Queen Guinevere, a tale that has spawned interpretations ranging from Malorys Le Morte dArthur to Lerner and Lowes Camelot. By remaining faithful to Chrtiens highly structured form, Cline preserves the pace, the pungency of proverbial expressions, and the works poetical devices and word play in translating this archetypal tale of courtly love from Old French into modern English. Clines introduction--containing a description of Arthur in history and literature, a discussion of courtly love, and an account of the continuations of the story of Lancelot and Guinevere--makes Lancelot an ideal classroom text.
