In this outstanding new translation of Lancelot, Burton Raffel brings to English language readers the fourth of Chrétien’s five surviving romantic Arthurian poems. This poem was the first to introduce Lancelot as an important figure in the King Arthur legend.

Burton Raffel is distinguished professor of humanities at the University of Southwestern Louisiana. He has published extensively, including six books and chapbooks of poetry, three texts on the translation process, and award-winning translations of Zola, Cervantes, and Rabelais. He is currently working on the translation of Chr‚tiens fifth and final romantic poem, Perceval.

"Raffel’s approach is sufficiently novel, and his work sufficiently appealing, that we can only welcome this addition to the burgeoning corpus of Chretien’s romances in English."—Norris J. Lacy, The Medieval Review
