The anonymous novel Perceforest is one of the great literary successes of the late Middle Ages. A vast six-part work, it describes the adventures of the distant ancestors of King Arthur and of the knights of the round table. An extract from Geoffrey of Monmouth’s Historia regum Britanniae precedes the novel, which opens with Alexander the Great unexpectedly arriving in Britain. He names two of his companions, Betis and Gadifer, king of England and king of Scotland. Betis, who frees the forests of England from Darnant and his accomplices, takes the name Perceforest. The hermit Dardanon advocates a new religion, halfway between pagan polytheism and Arthurian Christianity. Arthur would be the distant descendant of a touching love story between Alexander and Sebille. This is the first volume in the series. Volumes two to four are already available.
