    2. This was the last Arthurian Romance that we read for my Arthurian Legend and Literature course, and the only example that we got from the German tradition I enjoyed seeing magical and divine forces than a lot of the other texts had given us, although I didn t particularly enjoy the larger Crusades struggle Still, it was an altogether pleasant read.
