Crestien's von Troyes Contes del Graal (Percevaus li galois)

Weeks, Raymond

The present edition of the poem of Chrétien de Troyes is issud anonymously. It is ascribd by rumor to Professor G. Baist. The volume is evidently meant for students of Old French literature and filology. It is provided with an index of proper names and with a vocabulary of difficult and interesting words. A note on p. 123 states that the text is not absolutely that of the MS. indicated, until after line 6175. We infer that, beginning with this line, the text is rigorously what the title indicates, a reproduction of MS. 794. Pp. 105-109 offer, under the caption: Hergestellte Lesung, a number of attempted ameliorations of the manuscript readings.
