William Roach Vol. III, Part 2: Glossary of the First Continuation. Despite the existence of important texts which are commonly referred to as Continuations, such as Le Roman de la Rose, Le Chevalier de la Charrette and, of course, the Perceval Continuations, the mechanics and processes involved in actually producing a Continuation have found themselves indistinguishable from those associated with other forms of medieval réécriture.

I recommend reading this book. If you’re new to the Perceval story, read the Elucidation Prologue and Bliocadran first, then read Perceval proper, and then read the continuations in order, making sure to read the “independent conclusion to the second continuation” in the proper place.

It purports to be a continuation of Perceval, the Story of the Grail, but it has been called the least canonical Arthurian tale because of its striking differences from other versions. In one of the first studies to treat the Conte du Graal and its continuations as a unified work, Thomas Hinton considers the whole corpus as a narrative cycle.
The Elucidation is an anonymous Old French poem of the early 13th century, which was written to serve as a prologue to Chrétien de Troyes' Perceval, le Conte du Graal. The poem counts lines and cites one Master Blihis as a source for its contents.

The mysterious and haunting Grail makes its first appearance in literature in Chretien de Troyes' Perceval at the end of the twelfth century. But Chretien never finished his poem, leaving an unresolved story and an incomplete picture of the Grail. It was, however, far too attractive an idea to leave.5/5(1). Perceval, the Story of the Grail (French: Perceval, le Conte du Graal) is the unfinished fifth romance of Chrétien de Troyes. Likely written between and , it is dedicated to Chrétien's patron Philip, Count of Flanders. During the time Chretien wrote Perceval, there was a political.
