Even the grail as we know it, is more a Cornucopia dish than anything related to the Christ.
Want to Read Currently Reading Read. The repetitions, the superlatives, the exaggerated aggrandizements quickly drove me to abandon it. Quedaban sin resolver varios enigmas y sin solucionarse algunas de las aventuras ya emprendidas. Fascinant et, par ma foy, fort bien escript. Even prisoners, with no reason except want for their life, will carry through a promise to deliver themselves as prisoner to King Arthur.
On a few occasions, I was getting ready to poke my learned friend about some textual inconsistencies, but was foiled by the footnotes. This is the story of Perceval who goes on the quest for the grail after seeing knights pass through the trohes near his house wherehe grual alone with his mother as she has secluded the family form society due to the loss of the men in the family from chevalresque fighting.
Highly recommended for Arthurian newbies wanting to start reading some of the original medieval tales.
Perceval O El Cuento del Grial : Chretien de Troyes :
If we all advanced towards him at once he’d be frightened to death, I think, and couldn’t answer any of my questions. The ease of Chretien’s version does make for an easier read in translation compare to Chhretien and to get an overall understanding of the story it is the simpler way to go.
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 Also laughed at several of the parts he says would be useless to cuent Apr 12, Chelsea K.
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. 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.
A boy who’s seen chretiien has fallen to the ground in fear. I tried reading this to improve my French, but seeing as that’s already quite a chore, I need the story to be engaging and this story wasn’t. Overigens kom ik er pas meer dan een jaar later achter, dat dit een prozavertaling betreft van een in eerste instantie rijmende tekst, dus over De Troyes’ stijl kan ik alsnog helaas niks zeggen.
Though maybe in a story about the Grail, no ending is the most fitting of all. The version I was reading had an afterward that went over later attempts by unrelated authors to resolve the story, but it’s not quite the same as knowing what Chretien himself wanted to happen. En ellas se observa la labor de diversos escritores que reanudan el hilo de varios de los episodios ya iniciados ampliandolos.
Aquel que por su orgullo e ignorancia perdio la oportunidad de salvar al rey pescador y obtener el grial.

Thanks for telling us about the problem. But in the end I do wonder how Chretien version was going to end. Tambien me enfogona el hecho de que la historia de Perceval termina muy abruptamente.
Felipe de Flandes ordeno al mejor narrador de su tiempo que escribiera un relato que alegoricamente lo justificara ante los suyos y ante la historia. It ends right in the middle!
Compare these two versions from a passage in which Perceval sees knights for the first time version first: Y Gauvain, a pesar de ser nice, no es tan epico para mi como Perceval. El personaje de Perceval era mucho mas adorable, ya sea por su salvajismo e ignorancia, y me intrigaba el hecho de como se convertiria en un hombre mas “decente,” a diferencia de Gauvain, que es muy cortes y noble y bueno al punto de aburrirte.

Some comments on Perceval: Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. The story changes direction, promising to get back to Percival but never does, instead ending literally in mid-sentence during the story of Gawain.
There’s a great contrast with the sometimes bold description of the relationship between knight and lady invariably called “girlfriends”. Return to Book Page.
As with Knight of the Cart, the story’s great but the translation is not. La historia de Gwain son las aventuras que pasa en su busqueda por el Grial.
