The strong and enduring appeal of the Arthurian legends shows no signs of abating, yet many medieval Arthurian texts remain unedited or printed in editions no longer available, while comparatively few of them have been translated into English, thus making them inaccessible to the scholarly or general audience unable to read them in the original. The 'Arthurian Archives' series addresses these problems, aiming to provide authoritative critical editions with parallel translation of essentialtexts for Arthurian studies; each text will be accompanied by a brief introduction, variants and rejected readings, and critical notes. This first volume offers a collection of the French Tristan texts prior to the 'Prose Tristan'; of particular importance is the recently-discovered Thomas fragment, here edited Ian Short.
