Overview

Overview

Fully annotated edition, in French, of late 12c Arthurian romance.
Cligés is generally thought to be the second of Chrétien's Arthurian romances, probably written between 1185-87. This critical edition of Cligésis the first since Wendelin Foerster's in (1884) to take account of all the manuscripts. Based on the Guiot manuscript, it contains many emendations, producing a text closer to that of Chrétien's original. Variant apparatus, notes, glossary, and editorial comment on the manuscripts accompany the text.

STEWART GREGORY is in the Department of French, Leicester University; the late CLAUDE LUTTRELL was formerly in the Department of English at the same university, and is known for his books and articles on 12c French Arthurian romance.

Reviews

Represent(s) the first truly critical edition... almost impossible to fault. MEDIUM AEVUM
The text is beautifully presented. This new edition will be a useful addition to the libraries of Chretien scholars...providing a text which sets out to remedy the inadequacies of the CFMA edition...a useful service in stimulating interest in this underrated romance. FRENCH STUDIES
