This concise introduction to Gottfried von Strassburg's Tristan approaches the work both through its context and through a close reading of key passages of the text. The close textual reading builds up a distinctive interpretation of the work, in which particular attention is paid to Gottfried's reworking of literary tradition, his use of religious analogies, and his awareness of the fictive potential of literary language.
