Cligès Un amour sans crainte et sans peur est un feu ardent mais sans chaleur, un jour sans soleil, de la cire sans miel, un t sans fleur, un hiver sans gel, un ciel sans lune, un livre sans lettres.Une jolie histoire qui m le Tristan et Iseut, ou encore Rom o et Juliette, sauf que a finit bien Half way through and you re still wondering why it s called Cliges Then he s born Fast, easy, much like the way the characters fall in love. In This Extraordinarily Fine Translation Of Clig S, The Second Of Five Surviving Arthurian Poems By Twelfth Century French Poet Chr Tien De Troyes, Burton Raffel Captures The Liveliness, Innovative Spirit, And Subtle Intentions Of The Original Work In This Poem, Chr Tien Creates His Most Artful Plot And Paints The Most Starkly Medieval Portraits Of Any Of His Romances The World He Describes Has Few Of The Safeguards And Protections Of Civilization Battles Are Brutal And Merciless, Love Is Anguished And Desperate Clig S Tells The Story Of The Unhappy Fenice, Trapped In A Marriage Of Constraint To The Emperor Of Constantinople Fenice Feigns Death, Then Awakens To A New, Happy Life With Her LoverEnormously Popular In Their Own Time, Each Of Chr Tien S Great Verse Romances Is A Fast Paced Psychologically Oriented Narrative In A Rational And Realistic Manner, Chr Tien Probes The Inner Workings Of His Characters And The World They Live In, Evoking The People, Their Customs, And Their Values In Clear, Emotionally Charged Verse Clig S Is Filled With Chr Tien S Barbs And Bawdiness, His Humor And His Pleasure, His Affection And His Contempt It Is The Unmistakable Work Of A Brilliantly Individualistic Poet, Brought To Modern English Readers By Raffel S Poetic Translation In A Metric Form Invented Specifically To Reflect Chr Tien S Narrative Speed And Tone This is Chr tien s fix it fic for the story of Tristan and Iseut, a story he loathes because he is so squicked by adultery Clig s, like Tristan, falls in love with his uncle s intended and doesn t even have the excuse of a love potion to proffer for it However, unlike the hapless King Mark, Clig s s uncle Alis is actually the one wronging his nephew by taking a bride, which he promised his dead, usurped

by adultery Clig s, like Tristan, falls in love with his uncle s intended and doesn t even have the excuse of a love potion to proffer for it However, unlike the hapless King Mark, Clig s s uncle Alis is actually the one wronging his nephew by taking a bride, which he promised his dead, usurped older brother that he would never do so that his throne would pass to Clig s, who can therefore argue that his uncle started it Further, rather than falling victim to a love potion, Clig s s resourceful sweetheart Fenice gets her nurse to brew up a potion of her own, which causes Alis to fall asleep every night in their marital bed and dry hump his mattress whilst dreaming of his wife, meaning that their marriage is never actually consummated, meaning that it doesn t actually count, so there I do not believe that it would work that way, but I haven t actually reviewed any relevant medieval case law, so I ll let Chr tian have his technical non adultery.Fenice, wanting to escape her sham marriage so she can finally get it on with Clig s, fakes her own death with the same stuff Juliet used Unfortunately, she is intercepted on her way to her tomb by a lot of fancy Italian doctors, who take her pulse and notice that she is still, although unresponsive to their questioning Finding this state of affairs unsatisfactory, said doctors proceed to whip her bloody, pour molten lead into her hands, and are finally preparing to grill her alive, apparently on the principle that if she isn t going to act like she s alive, she shouldn t be permitted to remain so any longer At the crucial moment, however, a mob of indignant ladies intervene and deservedly defenestrate the doctors for having such terrible bedside manners.Understandably, Fenice s convalescence from this ordeal takes time She and Clig s live happily together for over a year in the secret tower that Clig s commissioned from the same serf who built the trick crypt for Fenice It has a fancy garden and everything and they would apparently stay there happily forever if one of Alis s men didn t climb into the tower garden to retrieve a mislaid hawk and surprise them in flagrante This man is so credulous he is actually prepared to believe that the woman that Clig s is getting it on with just happens to look exactly like the late lamented empress, but Clig s gives it all away by saying Oh noes, now I have to kill this guy to protect our secret, so then he does have to kill that guy to protect their secret Except, in spite of pwning all of King Arthur s knights four days running in different colored suits of armor earlier, he only manages to lop off this poor guy s leg, so he drags himself back to Alis to break the bad news to him.Clig s gets Arthur to send him an army to fight his uncle, but conveniently by the time he gets back, Alis has died of grief, so he can get married and assume his throne without any casualties besides Missing Leg Guy And the moral of the story is you can still live happily ever after if you weasel out of your technical adultery Cliges is Chretien de Troyes answer to Tristan and Iseult which concludes with a happy ending I enjoyed the exploration of love and the consciousness of Fenice, the heroine, in making sure she succeeds in freeing herself from her marriage so that she can satisfy her love for Cliges, the hero, without making Iseult s mistakes. Romeo and Juliet gone right It s so romantic. Superbe traduction J ai lu plusieurs uvres de Chr tien de Troyes dans la collection Lettres gothiques de Livre de poche et selon moi il s agit de la meilleure de celle que j ai lue jusqu maintenant. So, far I ve read three of Chretien de Troyes five medieval romances This was interesting although looking back at history it resembles reality as little as a modern historical movie resembles reality Still, as Arthurian romances go its a pretty good read Hope to never meet someone like Cliges unless we re on the same side.

un livre trouve dans la bibliotheque du monseigneur Saint Pierre a Beauvais Chretien montre ici cette obsession de gens lettres au sujet de la memoire et de faire perdurer quelque chose qui est en train de devenir desuet et de mourir sans laisser de trace.Le romam est a la fois orienta et byzantin , grec, breton ou Chretien lit imaginativement le monde grec a la matiere arthurienne et bretonneLe roman suit les deux histoires, celle du pere de Cliges, Alexanre,, aine du roi de Grece et la soeur de Gauvain, soeur d amour Soredamour, et leurs regards et les yeux rencontres et emprisonnes pour de bon dans leur ame ou ils trouvent leur siege C est Amour et l amour vrai qui est le veritable heros dans ce roman comme aussi dans l oeuvre precedant, Erec et Enide Dans tous les deux Chretien essaie de concilier l amour avec le mariage, et prouver son existence comme possible.C est Amour comme magie, amour qui aide a faire vaincre des obstacles qui cree le merveilleux en un autre espace temps, celui de reve amoureux ce qui traduit bien la rime songe mensonge lui donnant son sens La deuxieme histoire, est celle de Cliges et Phenice au nom magique et renaissant en joie et en douleur vers une nouvelle vie, sa tante, la femme de son oncle paternel Alis Et Amour vainc par un recit magique, incantatoire, puisant sa force dans l art de bien dire une histoire valeureuse et amoureuse et de donner a son oeuvre puisant la matiere de l ailleurs, une force et un sceau bien personnels le roman met en avant des le titre une illusion qui s elabore il est question des yeux et du coeur qui se sont soumis a l Amour L amour fait voir au souffrant ou a l amoureux ce qu il veut ou croit voir une vision esquivee, voir en biais.extrait ou Alis, oncle paternel de cliges touche par le philtre enivre par lui que la nourrice de Fenice lui a fait boire il croit la tenir, mais il n a rien d elle,un pur neant fait son bonheur,il enlace du neant, embrasse du neant,c est du neant qu il voit, auquel il parle,du neant avec lequel il se debat I didn t expect this to be as fun, lucid, and clever as it is If the stereotype of Arthurian romance is to be cliche, stiff, meandering, and naive this is really something of a counterexample For starters, it has a frame narrative of being a found document much in the way of Don Quixote, and that affords Chr tien the mythical framework to really get as ridiculous as possible with this We re talking knights that run headlong into enemy fortresses lopping off heads and limbs in single swipes, b I didn t expect this to be as fun, lucid,

fortresses lopping off heads and limbs in single swipes, but then returning to camp and having long internal battles over the fact that he can t so much as look his qt crush in the eyes Perhaps one thing which makes this feel so fresh is how little anglicized it is, being written by a Frenchman and following Greek characters which tilts this closer to classical myth than Arthurian legend The same folks we all know show up but they play bit parts But perhaps what makes this so interesting is how much focus Chr tien puts on their interior lives The main concept of this romance is the reciprocity of love, that is love freely volunteered between equal parties, which is amazing considering how the cliche of romances is the damsel to be taken from the captors Chr tien is cartoony but only superficially so, and these characters come out farwell rounded than they have any right to be He wants you to think this is a goofy ridiculous myth yet at the same time makes digs at Tristian and Isolde for being idiots I ll admit that Chr tien isn t quite subtle in his ironies, but that s maybe what makes him so fun For example, Remember Saint Paul s advice,And follow it he teaches that thoseWho can t remain chaste should alwaysCarefully arrange their affairsSo no one knows what they re doing.Clig s reads pretty quickly and part of it is good pacing on the part of Chr tien, but I d give a lot of credit to Raffel s verse translation There are prose versions floating around but I can t imagine them as fast and snappy as this reads It doesn t feel nine centuries old, which is pretty amazing, though again a lot of the credit for this goes to the poet Overall I m impressed and somewhat ashamed, for myself and everyone else, that this is a work that flies under the radar It deservesthan that Strong Recommendation
