Written in the early thirteenth century and universally considered a major work of European literature, Lancelot greatly influenced Malory, Tennyson, T.H. White and others. This edition presents, for the first time in English translation, the original, short version, which tells of Lancelot's childhood, his arrival at King Arthur's court, and the flowering of his legendary love affair with Queen Guinevere.
