The first English version for 25 years, Cyril Edwards's fine
translation vividly conveys the power of this complex, wide-ranging
medieval masterpiece. Richard Barber's introduction places
Wolfram's work in the wider context of the development of the
Arthurian romance and of the Grail legend. The text includes the
line divisions essential for students. The edition includes an
index to proper names and a genealogical table. The edition is the
first to combine Parzival with the fragments of Titurel.
