    The Arthurian Romances by Chrétien de Troyes form the wellspring of the legend of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. Stories of knightly valour in the Welsh Marches had existed before the 12th century, but it was the magnificent poetry and imagination of Chrétien, the 12th century French poet and trouvère, which brought alive the great characters of Arthur, his wife Guinevere, Lancelot and others.

    Lanzarote o el caballero de la carreta no solo se distingue por ser la precursora de la narrativa moderna, sino que destaca aún más si cabe, por su aportación trascendental a la literatura artúrica. Con Chrétien de Troyes el héroe emprende sus hazañas, exclusivamente, por amor a una dama o una doncella. El denominado amor cortés importado de los trovadores occitanos. Es así como Lanzarote, por su desmedido amor a Ginebra, sensual y carnal a la vez, traiciona incluso a su propio rey Arturo.
