9780198151708: Lancelot and the Grail: A Study of the Prose Lancelot (Clarendon Paperbacks)

Kennedy's Lancelot and the Grail offers a new solution to the fascinating puzzle of how the tale of Lancelot's love for Guinevere came to be linked with the legend of the Grail. Based on extensive research on the textual tradition of a romance copied and read over a time span of three centuries, the book raises such issues as the interplay between feudal relationships and literary structures, intertextuality, and the development of a text through time.

Review:

Lancelot and the Grail is a landmark. It is the first book-length study devoted entirely to the Old French Lancelot since F.Lot's pioneering volume in 1918. To treat Lancelot and the Grail only as a companion to the noncyclic romance would be shortsighted, for while Kennedy's analysis provides a convincing argument in favor of her initial hypothesis, it is also an invaluable account of the artistry that operates in the cyclic romance. Kennedy's quiet, often understated style, her matter-of-fact tone, and the painstaking care with which she presents her analysis make Lancelot and the Grail a work of very readable, reliable scholarship. Certainly, no student of the Lancelot can afford to be without it, and scholars interested in the development of interlace and prose narrative cannot ignore it. Carol R. Dover, Speculum - A Journal of Medieval Studies `The product of many years of meticulous and detailed study ... it has been warmly welcomed as a plausible attempt to explain the harmonisation of the Lancelot and grail legends.' Forum for Modern Language Studies 'Through its acumen and thoroughness it greatly advances our knowledge of the technique of interlace and will become essential reading for all those interested in the medieval cre ative process of reinterpretation.' uAutomatic Writing ` essential reading for all those interested in the medieval creative process of reinterpretation' French Studies
