This week’s episode opens up a discussion on Cliges, a French Medieval Arthurian tale. The themes of love, honor and valor are all present in abundance in this tale. This week, I focused on the theme of love, as I look at how love is depicted and treated in this story. Like most Medieval stories on love, the lovers tend to be afraid to show their love to one another out of fear of rejection. In the case of the lovers in Cliges this resolve with a match maker. I also look at the themes of valor and honor. Next week I continue my discussion on Cliges. Stay tuned!
