Cligès and Fenice are finally united after executing a false-death plot aided by black magic.With a thoroughness and clarity that will appeal to students and scholars of medieval literature, Clines accessible translation effectively conveys the sparkle, pace, and intricate wordplay of Chrétiens love monologues, classic themes, and complex poetic devices.

In addition, her introduction sheds new light on the transmission of British history and legend to the French court of Champagne. With themes that echo from the Tristan legend to Romeo and Juliet, Cligès is an exciting romance about young lovers who escape from an arranged match and find true love in marriage.
