Item description for Etre Heureux Au Moyen Age: D'apres Le Roman Arthurien En Prose Du XIIIe Siecle (Synthema) (Italian Edition) by K. Dybel...
Amongst the goals of humans on their earthly journey, the quest for happiness has always occupied first place. More than any other genre, the Arthurian novel forces its protagonists on the road. The happiness they seek has numerous names: Paradise, the wonders of the Holy Grail, love, friendship, freedom and finally hospitality, the joy of togetherness. Experienced within a specific chronotope, this happiness is a dynamic category, filled with hope. Opening its heroes to experience the infinite, it also allows for the experience of its opposite: linked to the notion of trial, they sometimes pay with their lives. The Arthurian universe enthusiastically embraces this defeat. The book examines the concept of happiness in two-differently inspired- cycles that marked the first half of the 13th century: the Lancelot-Grail and the Tristan in prose.
