Abstract

Contrary to Castilian literature, Catalan texts of the Middle Ages reject the reception of Arthurian material. In our study, we discuss the reasons for this phenomenon: The Catalan literary system does not tolerate the combination of “fields of fascination” typical of the genre; love, chivalry and the miraculous –categories necessarily associated in the Arthurian novel– are distributed in Catalan literature in different genres: While love is beginning to be the almost exclusive theme of lyric, the chronicles prefer to deal with heroic affairs. Since the miraculous remains for a long time in the field of clerical literature, the fantastic field of the Arthurian genre is gradually introduced using the techniques of sacred discourse: The Arthurian theme penetrates Catalan literature through the dream or with an allegorical mask.
