Review quote

"Given the swell of interest in the 13th century prose romances, this translation is an invaluable tool for English readers, and a rapid reference tool for scholars who do not have the Old French text to hand. It is an unfailingly accurate translation that is particularly sensitive to the nuances of the Old French text. A much wider audience will now be able to enjoy a long-lasting medieval masterpiece, and feel what was new about imaginative prose writing in the 13th century. The introduction complements the translation quite nicely."--Carol Doyer, IHarvard University"A very useful and welcome survey."--Suzanne Rahn, Pacific Lutheran University"An excellent translation."--Phillip C. Boardman, University of Nevada"Fills a gap. The translation is idiomatic in Modern English and preserves the flavor of the original."--Linda Marie Zaerr, Boise State Universityshow more
