Chr tien de Troyes, Dou Chevalier PDF Ì 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 Li Romans ePUB è 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 Romans Dou Chevalier eBook ´ 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 Chr tien s own day In his last, unfinished work, Perceval, the mysterious Grail makes its first appearance in literature.

    In the 12th century, Chr tien de Troyes wrote this story happening during the reign of King Arthur in the 6th century A simple, but great adventure which I liked from the beginning In the past, King Arthur s disciples were numerous and knew how to behave with honor, courtesy and generosity This is no longer the case today There are many who, wrongly, pretend to love while they don t feel the slightest feeling It s very unfortunate to overwork Love and to make fun of it Each century has it In the 12th century, Chr tien de Troyes wrote this story happening during the reign of King Arthur in the 6th century A simple, but great adventure which I liked from the beginning In the past, King Arthur s disciples were numerous and knew how to behave with honor, courtesy and generosity This is no longer the case today There are many who, wrongly, pretend to love while they don t feel the slightest feeling It s very unfortunate to overwork Love and to make fun of it Each century has its writers who regret the past centuries and I am part of them, just as Theophile Gautier French poet and author from the 19th century regretted the charming little marquises of the 18th century And Chr tien de Troyes writes The courtesy of a dead person is worthier of interest than the vulgarity of a living one Have we ever readbiting replies When the knight Keu denigrates another knight of the court, the queen says to him You are odious and disrespectful.And Keu answers Madam, if your presence among us is not a blessing, at least make sure it s not a nuisance Then Colegrant speaks We cannot prevent the manure from stinking and Keu from being odious Personally, I love this frankness And can we refrain from thinking of Rabelais when de Troyes describes this characterthan picturesque A big head, tousled hair, ears big and hairy like those of an elephant, thick eyebrows, flattened face, owl s eyes, a cat s nose, mouth slit like that of a wolf, sharp and yellow boar s teeth, a red beard, the chin directly welded to the bust, a long, curved and hunched spine Who can t feel that the author has feasted to write this description Besides, Chr tien de Troyes is full of humour Listen to what the knight answers to the previous character who asks him who he is I am an errant knight in search of what I cannot find I searched a lot, but in vain There is parody here, or my name is not Gabrielle Dubois But de Troyes also writes some truths It is not the one who gives the first shot that triggers the fight, but the one who replies And he also knows how to talk about love Injury of love isdurable than a spear blow I m not sure at all about my English, here And then, from time to time, there are small morals, precursor of Jean de Lafontaine Like all the preachers who are only liars and preach a moral they don t practice, I offer you advices that I would be unable to follow It reminds us that if costumes change, men remain the same.Finally, isn t there in Yvain, the Knight with the Lion all the ingredients of a good story, if not a tale Proud knights, beautiful ladies, cracked skulls from which the blood drips in waves, horses sliced in half by iron gates like guillotines, battles between knight and giant where the comparisons between the flesh of men and the meat of the butcher is at the same time bloody and comical blood red humor There are also humans looking like animals, rings giving the power of invisibility, and spells But can someone tell me what did Tolkien invent And if men are knights, brave or coward, women, who don t have the leisure to go to war, havetime to make their minds work The way Lady Laudine and her maid Lunette who leads the game lead the whole court to their idea is worthy of the greatest minds.Whatcan I tell you Even death is picturesque in this story A lord, having had a dispute with death, was compelled to succumb So, open your heart and your ears at once, for the wind is quick to carry away the words you only hear And what will you hear in this book That a great question is asked who is the most devastating among men love or war Then, tell around you about these knights, for, as Chr tien de Troyes writes so maliciously, what s the point to perform feats if we don t make them know what s the point to perform feats if they are not known

    I loved this translation nearly as much as I love the original text Cline has a great ear for rhyme and rhythm, captures the breathless excitement of Yvain s battle with Sir Esclados perfectly.

    The great thing about classics like this one is that we ve gained this great reverence for them, maybe just by virtue of how old and enduring they are, but so often if you actually take the time to read them you find they re quite entertaining To people in Chr tien de Troyes time, the idea of studying low entertainment like this would ve been absurd and yet I m writing an essay on this very book for my Western Classics in Translation class When you get past the pretence that capital C Class The great thing about classics like this one is that we ve gained this great reverence for them, maybe just by virtue of how old and enduring they are, but so often if you actually take the time to read them you find they re quite entertaining To people in Chr tien de Troyes time, the idea of studying low entertainment like this would ve been absurd and yet I m writing an essay on this very book for my Western Classics in Translation class When you get past the pretence that capital C Classics are complicated books for big brained lit majors, there s a lot of fun to be had Like Yvain, in which our titular knight really just manufactures his own problems and then laments them He kills a giant, adopts a lion, and fights a bunch of people but for seemingly no other reason than that it s something to do And there s this side plot about Love and the pain of losing it and whatever but the only reason Yvain s lover broke up with him is because he couldn t bring himself to stop jousting all the goddamn time It s fun and it s dumb and I love that I was so apprehensive about reading a twelfth century French chivalric romance only for it to turn out to be littlethan a rollicking bedtime story

    Things this medieval romance made me want to do befriend a lion who then follows me around like a loyal dog unknowingly battle my BKBF Best Knight Bro Forever until the sun sets and we have to stop fighting and ONLY THEN realize that it s my BKBF and not some random knight and, of course, go feral and live in the woods thanks to my wife breaking my heart because I broke a promise to her

    This is probably Chr tien de Troyes greatest poem, beautifully translated into English octosyllabic couplets by Ruth Harwood Cline.The story concerns the young knight Yvain who, having killed the Knight of the Fountain, falls in love with the knight s late wife, Laudine So that s a bit of an awkward situation Eventually, Laudine s lady in waiting, Lunete, is able to persuade Laudine to marry Yvain, as he will be able to protect her realm against an impending invasion The invasion turns out t This is probably Chr tien de Troyes greatest poem, beautifully translated into English octosyllabic couplets by Ruth Harwood Cline.The story concerns the young knight Yvain who, having killed the Knight of the Fountain, falls in love with the knight s late wife, Laudine So that s a bit of an awkward situation Eventually, Laudine s lady in waiting, Lunete, is able to persuade Laudine to marry Yvain, as he will be able to protect her realm against an impending invasion The invasion turns out to be by King Arthur, and not a threat at all But Yvain asks if he can leave for a year to attend tournaments and other knightly exercises When he forgets to return to Laudine at the end of the year, his trials begin.This really is Chr tien at his best The character psychology is plausible, the soliloquies and allegorical representations of their conflicted emotions don t get in the way of the story as they sometimes do in Chr tien s Lancelot Or, the Knight of the Cart Most of all, Yvain s suffering once he has been rejected by Laudine, his humility before her, and the painfulness of her slow and somewhat ambiguous forgiveness all mark this as a romance of unequalled sensitivity.Chr tien de Troyes is unusual among medieval romancers Most Arthurian romances end with the marriage of the protagonist to a beautiful lady In this romance, and in Chr tien s Erec and Enide, marriage occurs a third of the way into the story, enabling Chr tien to write a story about the pitfalls and trials of one of life s greatest adventures, marriage

    Ok, I m no expert These are French remakes of Arthurian tales, and many pages are spent on courtly love and wealth The adventures are exciting, but nothing like you might expect.

    I bought this book by accident, to be perfectly honest with all of you I was thinking it was a play by some author I forget, and instead I bought this story by Chretien de Troyes and imagine my surprised when I received the wrong book in the mail I m not sad about it, mind you No, I m quite thankful that the fates stepped in and gave me this book.I have never read such a story of high adventure and knighthood in my life Yvain Ywain, the main character, is a knight in King Arthur s court Y I bought this book by accident, to be perfectly honest with all of you I was thinking it was a play by some author I forget, and instead I bought this story by Chretien de Troyes and imagine my surprised when I received the wrong book in the mail I m not sad about it, mind you No, I m quite thankful that the fates stepped in and gave me this book.I have never read such a story of high adventure and knighthood in my life Yvain Ywain, the main character, is a knight in King Arthur s court You follow this knight on all kinds of adventures that include dragons, giants, devils, and evil knights Plus, he has a lion for a companion That s just awesomeThis is one of the French poems written by Chretien de Troyes in the 15th century I believe about the adventures of the knights of King Arthur I definitely recommend it It s super fun

  9. Othy says:

    A wonderful version of a spectacular romance I m partial to the Welsh version Owein better, and have had my problems with Chretien s romantics, but for Yvain the tale is really beautifully told Cline s translation is poetic, and as I do not know any Old French, I m not sure if it s very accurate Still, it is very good, without too many forced modernisms, and sounds very good.
