EL CABALLERO DE LA CARRETA

AI invadir la Inglaterra sajona, los normandos
buscaron la legitimación de su poder en los mitos
de la vieja Britania; así renacería de las brumas célticas
la figura del Rey Arturo, que un clérigo galés
-Geoffrey de Monmouth magnificaría en su famosa

EL CABALLERO DE LA CARRETA

Lanzarote o el caballero de la carreta no solo se distingue por ser la precursora de la narrativa moderna, sino que destaca aún más si cabe, por su aportación trascendental a la literatura artúrica. Con Chrétien de Troyes el héroe emprende sus hazañas, exclusivamente, por amor a una dama o una doncella. El denominado amor cortés importado de los trovadores occitanos. Es así como Lanzarote, por su desmedido amor a Ginebra, sensual y carnal a la vez, traiciona incluso a su propio rey Arturo. Con esta edición pretendemos cautivar al lector con un lenguaje ágil y ameno. Pero también, que con las notas precisas a pie de página y un glosario conciso de personajes y lugares, además de una filmografía selecta de las mejores películas sobre esta saga, comprenda aún mejor esta novela imprescindible de aventuras.

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

Chretien de Troyes was by far the most prolific and influential writer of French narrative poetry in the twelfth century. Of his life nothing definite is known. The appellation "de Troyes" could mean that he was born there or simply that he was connected with the town and, probably, with the court of Champagne. The identification of Chretien with a certain canon of St. Loup, near Troyes, mentioned in records in 1173, has no supporting evidence, nor has the suggestion that, since Chretien (Christianus) was a name frequently adopted by converts, he was of Jewish origin.… (more)
