This study views the pervasive ambiguity of Chretien's romances as
a positive quality and focuses on the techniques used in Yvain to
encourage reflection. An adversative structure informs this
romance, setting up a disconcerting rhythm of false belief and
reversal which forces the reader/listener (like the hero) to
question all that meets the eyes and ears. "Grimbert's discussion
ranges broadly and authoritatively over subjects from narrative
omniscience and reliability ... to character, to rhetoric and the
duplicity of language."" Norris J. Lacy, French Review 63.2 (1989).
