Erec and EnideBy Chretien of Troyes
Translated by William Comfort
Illustrated by Gustave Dore
The oldest surviving Arthurian romance, and one of Chretien de Troyes' masterpieces. The bold Sir Erec becomes thoroughly domesticated and abandons questing after he rescues and weds the damsel-in-distress Enide, turning him into the laughingstock of Camelot, and causing Enide much distress. He awakens to his predicament, and sets out on a quest, dragging Enide along. Can he recover her love and his reputation? Find out in this classic romance, the inspiration for the Mabinogi of "Geraint and Enide," and Tennyson's Idyll of the same name.
