Abstract:

Among 15th-century literature in the Romance languages, "Curial and 
Guelfa" is one of the most successful romances of chivalry. It is a veritable 
jewel of late medieval European literature and of narrative in the Crown of 
Aragon in particular. "Curial" shares a range of features - realism, humanity, 
believable deeds of chivalry, historical background, allusions to everyday life, 
elements of humour and parody, variation between literary and popular 
language - with contemporary French chivalric narratives, and with the 
Valencian Joanot Martorell's "Tirant lo Blanc". In this company, however, 
"Curial" stands out for the predominance in it of the sentimental component, 
for a significant incidence of learned elements from Greek and Latin classical 
culture and from the early fathers of the Christian church, and for its striking 
stylistic elegance. These learned elements are an indication of fresh 
humanistic breezes blowing from Italy. In this way the novel unites several 
cultural currents that converge in western Romance narrative at the end of 
the Middle Ages and the beginning of the Renaissance.

This translation into English, by Max W. Wheeler, is based upon the 2008 
edition by Antoni Ferrando.
