Example text

It should be remembered that the reviser wrote the whole of the fragment. He reproduced the old received narrative in his own words but under the influence of its style, he composed his additions with an entirely free hand according to his own tastes. Features of his style can, therefore, be found in both strata and the differences may not always be clear-cut. The later accretions The Tryst beneath the Tree, likewise incomplete, describes how, at the instigation of the dwarf Frocin, Mark hides in a tree and eavesdrops on the lovers.

ILLINGWORTH Par qui ceste novele est sorse! Certes, en asez poi de borse En porront metre le gaain. ’ 1077–82 The passage is exclamatory in tone, with a final curse that echoes the closing line of the previous added passage (cf. , 1064) and a reference to monetary value (Certes, en asez poi de borse En porront metre le gaain, 1080–1). 57 Earlier in the episode come two closely juxtaposed, longer passages, of twenty-two and eighteen lines respectively (783–804 and 809–26), in which the theme of judicial combat again appears.

Sire, merci a celle foiz! ... ... Sire, jos tien por mon seignor. ... ... Sire, que l’acordasse a vos. ... ... Sire, de rien ne nient irez; ... ... Sire, or t’ai dit le voir sanz falle . ’ The passage in which Mark responds to Iseut’s admission that she did meet Tristran (476–92) is also quite different from the corresponding passage in O (3642–82c). Themes the reviser introduced at the beginning of the episode in the exchanges between Tristran and Iseut, such as Mark’s ingratitude to the slayer of the Morhout and Tristran’s wish to be released from his pledges are reiterated, thereby quite naturally creating parallels with the earlier interpolated passages (La batalle que li fis faire, 480, Le mal q’en mer li estut traire De la serpent, dont le garistes, 484–5, = Molt 45 A device already used in Tristran’s response to Iseut (101–56), with initial Dame at 106, 113 and 149, and Mark’s soliloquy when his words show he has been fooled by the lovers (286–319), with initial Or at 287, 292, 298, 305 and 318.
