The legend of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table has played a significant role in English literature and culture for hundreds of years. Furthermore, in the Middle Ages, not only the English were inspired by these stories but also several nations of the Continent. Among others, Chrétien de Troyes and Marie de France chose Arthur and his knights as central figures of many of their works. Nevertheless, the French approach to the Arthurian myth seems to be quite different from the English one. Events or heroes who are described in a very detailed way in the English versions sometimes are not even mentioned in any of the French works. In this monograph, the quest to be accomplished is to find possible reasons for the different approaches and it will hopefully satisfy the Humble Reader¿s expectations.
