Compare to Bedier’s version. What are the effects of any changes? What does
Malory seem most interested in?
The two of them were more in love before the potion in the other version it
was like the whole reason the whole reason they were in love was because of
the potion
Their love is consummated in this version
There is a shift in the characterization of Mark what is the different
presentation of Mark? Is he a good or bad King?
He only marries Iseult because he wants to tear apart the love between
Tristram and her
Legitimizes the adultery and lessens the tension between love and chivalric
bond
Once Mark does not keep his end of the bargain he is not in debt to mark any
more
The potion: ‘if formerly their love for each other has been strong, not it was
unassailable’
Mark
-in this version he is seen as a dragon who needs to be killed
-he is who has lain Cornwall to the bad position they are in
-He is seen as the abnormal
-This makes the romance seem more realistic
-The evil in this book is very much human and knightly
Love and Chivalric bonds
Who supports Tristram and iseult?
They end up and Launcelots castle
“You will bring shame upon me…is his due’ (pg 366)
-Tristram is invited to a feast in Camelot > interesting because the whole plot
of the story is for Tristram to join the ritual celebrations of the Arthurian
court
-However Tristram gets a bit bad at this moment and considers not going to
Camelot
-This is significant statement of how she sees their relationship because he
reputation is at stake if he does not go to the feast
-She is highlighting how their love can function within this communal ritual
and society
Love allows Trsitram to overcome his enemies love adds to the knights
virtue and is not detrimental
Reconciliation followed b fellowship
E.g Stepmother, Bleobris, Sir Segwarydes
