A History of Tristan Scholarship


This history presents a survey of the ideas and achievements of those scholars who, from the late 18th century up to the present, have dealt with the Tristan material and in particular with the medieval romance on this theme by Gottfried von Strassburg. The pertinent literature has been divided and arranged so that each chapter covers one of the main branches of Tristan scholarship and offers a chronological record of its development.
