After reading the assigned works in Chapter 6 of the textbook (Romance) and completing the multiple choice and response board questions there, please make your main post. For your main post: Start by copying in your response to your assigned response board question:
Question:Why do you think chivalric romances such as “Lanval” retain such a hold on our imagination to this day?
My initial response:I believe that this type of romance is still valid today because we can relate to an average man wanting a beautiful woman. Not that Lanval was an average man, but he was trying to make aname for himself, being kind and noble.
Expanded response: consider the idea of nostalgia. Are romances like this just nostalgic, idealizing earlier times, or can they help us to understand something important about our own culture?
