I read a Chretien de Troyes anthology when I was younger and enjoyed it. By far it had the most realistic depiction of medieval fighting, aka people beating the shit out of each other, but swords can't cut through plate. They've got a spontaneity and authenticity you just don't see in the usual literature. This guy could teach the Romantics a thing or two, and probably did.
Have I simply lucked onto the best of the bunch, or are there more stellar volumes out there waiting to be read?
