Chrétien de Troyes: Complete works published8 April 2019
Chrétien de Troyes' complete works, including Perceval, are now available online, and in five volumes in printed book form, and on Kindle. The Perceval in particular is available from Amazon, here.
I am currently working on a new verse translation of the Lais of Marie de France, a contemporary of Chrétien, who fashioned written texts from the Breton oral tales which she had heard. Intended like Chrétien's works to be read aloud, these Lais only work for me in rhyming verse couplets as originally composed, and so I am translating them into English in that form.
