This co-written, multi-stranded book challenges assumptions about Chretien as the author of a canon of works. In a series of lively exchanges, its five authors reassess the relationship between lyric and romance, between individuality and social conditions, and between psychology and medieval philosophy. The idea of "logical time" is used to open up such topics as adventure, memory, imagination, and textual variation. Recent research on Troyes and on the political agency of women leads to the reappraisal of subjectivity and gender. Throughout, the medieval texts associated with the name of Chretien are highlighted as sites where thought emerges; the implications of this thought are historicized and further conceptualized with the help of recent theoretical works, including those of Lacan. ZRINKA STAHULJAK, VIRGINIE GREENE, SARAH KAY, SHARON KINOSHITA and PEGGY McCRACKEN are professors at the University of California, Los Angeles, Harvard, New York University, the University of California, Santa Cruz and the University of Michigan respectively.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A fascinating volume that might reenergize Chretien-scholarship, either because of agreements or disagreements. STUDI MEDIEVALI II The planks of this collection remain the theoretical reconceptualization and the approach taken to reappraise the Chretien corpus in terms of modes of medieval thinking that bring into question paradigms of universal knowledge. FRENCH STUDIES A stimulating approach to the study of the works of Chretien. [...] It should [...] prove invaluable for any serious study of medieval romance, either as a stimulus for new ideas or as a theoretical framework in general. OENACH
