Surprisingly modern translation, very easy to follow. I suspect learned Arthurian readers would also find much to admire. Hardcoverpages. I mean, for shame, author who died years ago. The ease of Chretien’s chretjen does make for an easier read in translation compare to Wolfram’s and to get an overall understanding of the story it is the simpler way to go.

Even prisoners, with no reason except want for their life, will carry through a promise to deliver themselves as prisoner to King Arthur.

Bryant’ This new edition of Nigel Bryant’s eminently readable translation of the first tale to feature the grail was timed to coincide with the release of the film of The Da Vinci Codebut is as far removed from that work’s fantasies as the Mona Lisa is from a Barbie doll. I feel like I should have seen that coming. I am amazed at the character arc from the imbecilic young Percival who wants to be a knight so he can dress like one to the repentant and sorrowful man who missed his chance to grab the grail.

Looking words up takes time and takes you out of the story so I would like it to be worth it. It cuts off in the middle of the sentence with absolutely zero resolution to the main threads of the narrative. Which leads us to 3this is a story with no end. Wolfram completed version is equal importance of God and Christian faith but its not being shoved down the readers throat and coming a century later harkens back to some of the original pagan themes.

What also bugged me, I was more or less halfway in and there had not been a single mention of the Holy Grail yet. I heard Wagner’s Parcival opera on the radio one Saturday afternoon and decided to pursue the book that had inspired this. I can’t forget the imagery from this book, written in 12th century France. I truly love the mythological essence that this unfinished poem creates that has influenced the deepest part of my psychology and probably the psychology of most authors and readers of fantasy.

The story changes direction, promising to get back to Percival but never does, instead ending literally in mid-sentence during the story of Gawain. View all 9 comments. Its her explanations of the knoghts job that inspires Pereval’s wander lust which sets the rest of the story in motion.

Perceval O El Cuento del Grial

And surely, he’s a good knight, but just because he prays mo I’ve decided to stop reading eel. The main set-up of the poem is certainly didactic: In my search for a Perceval story I read as a kid, I had to go back to the source. Hubiera estado bueno un final igual.

It is certainly not worked out so mystically, as in later periods! In his last, unfinished work, Percevalthe mysterious Grail makes its first appearance in literature. Quedaban sin resolver varios enigmas y sin solucionarse algunas de las aventuras ya emprendidas.

What’s interesting about this book is that it starts out as the lessons of a mother to her son and ends with Guavin in a mystical castle filled with women –my question: Quanto arriva alla corte del re, entra nella sala del trono direttamente a cavallo, passa talmente vicino al sovrano da urtarlo col cavallo e fargli cadere la corona.

The end of the second extract certainly flows a lot more smoothly, and over the course of this edition makes the revision more readable. The book starts off great, but it lost me once Gawain became the focus instead of Perceval.

Open Preview See a Problem? Je crois plutot qu’il reste ouvert a des interpretations diverses de chaque lecteur. Tambien me enfogona el hecho de que la historia de Perceval termina muy abruptamente. A boy who’s seen us has fallen to the ground in fear. 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 Even if the D D R Owen Everyman Classic translation of is substantially cheaper, it doesn’t include the Continuations which allow us to witness the rapid evolution of a legend.

Also laughed at several of the parts he says would be useless to tell: Un libro de valientes caballeros enfrentando grandes aventuras en nombre de la cristiandad y del rey Arturo.

There’s a great contrast with the sometimes bold description of the relationship between knight and lady invariably called “girlfriends”. I found I understood the French grammar better than I had expected, so not the whole reading experience has been a waste thankfully.

Even prisoners, with no reason except want for their life, will carry through Really enjoyable! The scenes of the wasteland by TS Eliot was inspired by the haunting description of the inside of the castle where there is no sound of children playing, nor business of shops selling baked goods, nor mills grinding because the lands lies desolate due to the wounds of the Fisher King.

Still worth a read even though de Troyes died before writing the conclusion.

El Cuento del grial se convertia asi en un programa para la educacion del perfecto caballero, con una transcendencia literaria que ha llegado hasta nuestros dias. I was so pumped to read the origin of the Arthurian Grail myths, but there are a couple things I didn’t know going in that I definitely should have: Koning Arthur is slechts marginaal aanwezig, Excalibur heet hier Gawains zwaard te zijn en de graal heeft hier niets met Christus van doen.
