Read full description of the books Erec et Enide:

Premier roman du premier grand romancier français, Erec et Enide (vers 1170) met pour la première fois en scène le roi Arthur et les chevaliers de la Table Ronde. Cette oeuvre si déterminante pour l'évolution du roman médiéval nous étonne par sa diversité : roman d'aventures autant que roman d'amour; roman merveilleux et roman courtois, au sens où Chrétien de Troyes prend plaisir à décrire avec précision le raffinement de la cour arthurienne; roman enpli de la joie d'un couple qui devient la joie de tout un royaume à Brandigan, puis à Nantes.

Read information about the author

Ebook Erec et Enide read Online! Chrétien de Troyes, commonly regarded as the father of Arthurian romance and a key figure in Western literature, composed in French in the latter part of the twelfth century. Virtually nothing is known of his life. Possibly a native of Troyes, he enjoyed patronage there from the Countess Marie of Champagne before dedicating his last romance to Count Philip of Flanders, perhaps about 1182. 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. Whilst much of his matter is inherited from the world of Celtic myth and the events notionally unfold in the timeless reign of King Arthur, the society and customs are those of Chrétien's own day. In his last, unfinished work, Perceval, the mysterious Grail makes its first appearance in literature.
