This edition of the Queste del Saint Graal offers researchers, teachers, and students a definitively authentic edition of the thirteenth-century text as a source for narrative, manuscript culture, language, and linguistics. Like La mort le roi Artu, its predecessor in the Brepols Prose Lancelot of Yale 229 series, this volume supports reading, research, and teaching with name and word glossaries, extended notes to the text, an introductory essay, and a "Works Cited" of primary and secondary resources of interest to the Queste. Alison Stones’s comparative study and detailed collation of the decoration of illustrated Queste manuscripts provide a unique and indispensable resource of Queste manuscript art and its connections to the narrative.
