Psychology Press, 2002 - Literary Criticism - 312 pages
1 Review
This volume examines the fascinating character of Perceval (or Parzival), the naive, flawed but gifted youth who becomes the Grail hero in some texts and yet is eclipsed in others by Galahad. Concentrating on medieval and modern literature, film and Wagnerian opera, the book gathers together both classic studies and new essays commissioned for this volume. A full introductory essay and extensive bibliography are included.
