The Arthurian episodic romance, which includes the love story of Lancelot and Guinevere and the Quest for the Grail are enduringly popular tales, but ones with a very complex history. These five volumes collect together and offer translations of the Lancelot-Grail Cycle (also known as the Vulgate Cycle) and the later Post-Vulgate Cycle.





The influence of these Cycles is almost incalculable; they have been translated or adapted into a number of languages and have been the source or basis for many writers, including Sir Thomas Mallory, though they also act as great works in their own right.





For ease of use, each volume is divided into numbered and titled sections or chapters, summaries of all romances, keyed to chapter divisions, are included in the final volume (V) and notes give information about textual and cultural matters and offer a key to internal cross references.
