The History of William Marshal
NIGEL BRYANT is well known for his lively and accurate versions of
medieval French works. His translations of Chrétien de Troyes'
and all its continuations and of the extraordinary late Arthurian romance Perceforest have been major achievements; he has also translated Jean le Bel's history of the early stages of the Hundred Years War, and the 13th- and 14th-century biographies of William Marshal and Bertrand du Guesclin. He was awarded the 2019 Norris J. Lacy Prize for outstanding editorial achievement in Arthurian studies.
This book deserves to become a classic and to find its way into
many a university course syllabus and into many a bookcase.
