La vengeance Raguidel is an Arthurian verse romance from the early thirteenth century belonging to the literary tradition of Chrétien de Troyes. It tells of Gauvain’s revenge of Raguidel (a knight killed by the invulnerable Guengasoain), as well as his adventures with the amorous Lady Gaudestroit and the unfaithful and sensual Ydain. Avoiding Arthurian stereotypes, Raoul de Houdenc tells the story at a brisk pace and with a humorous tone. The introduction examines the question of authorship, the spirit of the work, the manuscript tradition, the author’s language and that of the copy. Variants, notes and a glossary complete this edition.
