It is astonishing that it receives so little mention, as far as one can tell durante the absence of an index, durante The Legacy of Chretien de Troyes, ancora. N. J. Lacy et al., 2 vols. (Amsterdam, ). There is verso reference con I, 145. Marquardt, Der Einfluss Kristians von Troyes auf den Roman ‘Fergus’ des Guillaume Le Clerc (Gottingen, 1906). The nearest parallel is Huon de Mery’s Tournoiement Antechrist. Here too the essential borrowings from Chretien had been recognized mediante an early German dissertation (by Max Grebel, Leipzig, 1883), but have only quite recently been examined for the artistry with which they have been recycled: see K. Busby, ‘Plagiarism and Poetry con the Tournoiement Antechrist of Huon de Mery’, Neuphilologische Mitteilungen 84 (1983), 505–21. For the distinction of the terms parody, pastiche and burlesque, which Owen tends esatto use interchangeably, see T. Hunt, ‘La Parodie medievale: le cas d’Aucassin et Nicolette’, Romania 100 (1979), 341–81 (pp. 347–50). There are references in Chretien sicuro per Scottish king Aguisel (Erec line 1966), Carduel (Erec line 5724, Yvain line 7, Perceval lines 330 and 797), Cototatre (Perceval line 3613 ? Firth of Forth), Danebroc (Erec lines 2127 and 2133 ?

This was illustrated, albeit rather atomistically, by one of the first modern publications on Fergus, W

And yet, although Fergus is often approached as a roman d’apprentissage with per lieve imperfezione-Perceval as hero21 – Marquardt already showed there were more debts esatto the Perceval than onesto any other of Chretien’s romances – the context of the whole rete informatica is unmistakably inscribed per the cadre of Yvain, the paradigm of medieval romance which seems to have been ever present sopra Guillaume’s mind. The pastiche begins with the details of the veste en scene. The opening incident of Yvain takes place ‘apres mengier, par mi les sales’ (line 8) echoed con ‘Granturco es sales nell’eventualita che sejornoient/ Apres mangier . . .’ (Fergus lines 19–20), but whereas sopra Chretien the guests talk together of ‘recent happenings’ (nouveles, line 12) and love (amours, line 13), and then Calogrenant begins sicuro relate an adventure notable for being sicuro his discredit, Fergus isolates two members of the athletique, Gauvain and Yvain, compares them loftily with Achilles and Patroclus, and then with calculated bathos reveals that they talk merely ‘d’unes et d’autres’ (line 33: ‘of this and that’) and ‘disoit cascuns chant voloir’ (line 37: ‘each said whatever he pleased’), thus trivializing the theme of breviligne dialogue. Verso signal inversion of the source occurs when the two friends are interrupted by the unexpected arrival of the king (‘Li rois nell’eventualita che laisse entr’els caoir’, line 38), whereas sopra Yvain it is the queen who interrupts (‘Nel caso che ora non piu laissie entr’eus queoir’, line 66; Arthur is asleep), the interruption causing Gauvain and Calogrenant respectively to spring onesto their feet (‘Sinon est errant sailli en pies’, Fergus line 41; ‘Sali en pies contre li sus’, Yvain line 68). Arthur is far from drowsy, but bored and bent on action: ‘je vel orendroit errer./ Li sejorners pas ne me plest:/ Je vel cachier en la forest’ (Fergus lines 46–48: ‘I’ve verso mind to serie out straight away! Loafing around is not preciso my taste: I wish to go hunting mediante the forest’). The audience is thus invited esatto appreciate the reworking of verso celebrated romance opening. Cil [l’]aimme com s’amie fine Et ele quello comme ami delicate. Guillaumes li clers trait per sensitive De sa matere et de sa trove. Car en nule terre ne trove Nul homme qua tant contienne vescu Del chevalier au biel escu Plus en avant conter l’en sace. Ici met la bonne et l’estace; Ici est la fins del roumans. Grans joie viegne as escoutans. (lines 7000–12)22
