About the Author: Chrétien de Troyes

Chrétien de Troyes, commonly regarded as the father of Arthurian romance and a key figure in Western literature, composed in French in the latter part of the twelfth century. Virtually nothing is known of his life. Possibly a native of Troyes, he enjoyed patronage there from the Countess Marie of Champagne before dedicating his last romance to Count Philip of Flanders, perhaps about 1182. His poetry is marked by a learning and a taste for dialectic acquired in Latin schools; but at the same time it reveals a warm human sympathy which breathes life into characters and situations. Whilst much of his matter is inherited from the world of Celtic myth and the events notionally unfold in the timeless reign of King Arthur, the society and customs are those of Chrétien's own day. In his last, unfinished work, Perceval, the mysterious Grail makes its first appearance in literature.

Perceval vit à l'écart du monde, ignorant de tout, et même de son nom. Un jour dans la forêt, il croise, émerveillé, cinq chevaliers revêtus de leur armure et décide de rejoindre la cour du roi Arthur pour se faire à son tour armer chevalier. Ainsi débutent les aventures de Perceval qui affrontera cent ennemis, rencontrera l'amour et tentera de percer le mystère du graal. Comment un enfant rustre et naïf va-t-il devenir un parfait chevalier ? C'est toute l'histoire de ce roman d'apprentissage avant la lettre. Car Perceval ne parviendra au plein épanouissement de sa personnalité qu'à condition de connaître les codes en vigueur. Et même alors, il lui restera à s'en détacher pour accéder à une plus haute vérité.
