All that we know about chivalry today and of our recent past seems to be rooted from the beginning of the medieval age to which this work belongs and France’s enlightenment movement seems to almost had been predicted long before its time as seen in this plot wherein the queen decided to choose reason over emotion in her reaction towards seeing Lancelot in Arthur’s court after a year of imprisonment, seeming to bring conclusion to their adulterous affair.

Therefore, this Arthurian legend like the cqballero, gives you a clue to the prevailing attitude in France that time.

Nevertheless, this book is definitely worth a read. Not that it HAS a cabalero per se.

The first pits an emotion against an intellectual capacity; the debate is essentially one between sense and sensibility. Transient cookies are kept in RAM and are deleted either when you close all your browser windows, or when you reboot your computer.

This poem was the first to introduce Lancelot as an important figure in the King Arthur legend. Definitely want to reread this in the prose version. Au final, j’ai failli m’ennuyer, alors que le texte ne fait que cent pages.

His poetry is marked by a learning and a taste for dialectic acquired in Latin schools; but at the same time it reveals a warm human sympathy which breathes life into characters and situations.

I always had a soft spot for the Middle-Ages and our romanticised idea of it. If you know nothing about King Arthur, I’d still recommend this book because I found it to ka a great story of adventure and romance; plus, I found it really funny.

While this felt like a typically medieval story with some flaws that the modern critic may find problematic, I found it remarkably enjoyable.

Although he includes a perfunctory love scene where a bloody-fingered Lancelot bends metal bars to hook up with an imprisoned Guinevere while Kay, gravely wounded by his usual combination of bravado and poor planning, sleeps unwittingly in the same room, there isn’t much of a payoff cafreta their relationship.

Of course the very “knightly” things Lancelot does can see a little weird- like agreeing to return to his prisoner after the tournament and actually fulfilling that promise- but that is part of what makes this story just a good knight story.
