So, here is the list, the set list as they say. It’s set in the approximate order, in which I will read them.
The Song of Roland
Yvain or the Knight of the Lion – Chretien de Troyes
The Name of the Rose – Jean de Muen and Guillaume de Loren
Flamenca – author not certain
Gottfried Von Strassburgs version of Tristan und Isolde
Gawain and the Green Knight
The Knights Tale from The Canterbury Tales – Chaucer
The theme as you may have guessed is Medieval Literature with a focus on Romances.
There are many different versions of the above texts, with a variety of translators. Some of the texts retain the old languages – Middle English, or French or Old Provencal. There is much to be considered.
And I added the Lais by Marie de France, I’m not sure if they were on the original course list but it’s on my new list – l feel the need for a female amongst all these medieval men.
