Au final, on a l’impression de lire du Hyper Text Markup Language. The first two books of Amadis of Gaul are a pleasure to read, absorbing, and hard to put down.
However, the story soon becomes more politically intriguing and generally deeper, so that the reader is fully enthralled by the end of Book II. Indeed, it is hard to resist the temptation, even after The first two books of Amadis of Gaul are a pleasure to read, absorbing, and hard to put down. Indeed, it is hard to resist the temptation, even after pages, to dive right into the second volume, containing Books III and IV.
Even so, I think I will balance my palette with a taste of something else before returning to Amadis. The world of Amadis of Gaul consists of three overlapping and sometimes conflicting moralities.
The first morality, the aristocratic one, equates good looks, personal honesty, martial valor, and fine pedigree, resulting in the assumption that a handsome man must therefore also be an honest man, who must therefore also be a good fighter, who must therefore also be a man of noble birth. It is interesting in this respect to observe that many of the villains in this book are ugly of appearance or of nonstandard physical types such as dwarfs and giants. In any case, this aristocratic morality of Amadis is so internalized that its compiler, Garci Rodriguez de Montalvo, never pauses to examine it.
In contrast to the passively-accepted aristocratic morality, the religious one is elaborated more explicitly. Often, its invoker is a character in the book, as in this dialogue between the evil Arcalaus and the heroic Amadis: Just as frequently, the reminder that God is in charge is provided by the narrator himself. In a few places, too, the narrator speaks in general, didactic, terms, as in: And at this juncture, as the story seeks to proceed, you will be able to see how little the strength of the human mind suffices when that high Lord, with slackened reins and lifted hand withdrawing His grace, permits the judgment of man to exercise its powers freely; whence it will be manifest to you whether great estates, high dominions can be won and governed with the prudence and diligence of mortal man; or if when divine Grace is lacking, great pride, great greed, a throng of armed soldiers are enough to maintain them.
However, Garci Rodriguez de Montalvo, in soliloquizing that the high may be brought low, seems also to be positing the religious morality as a contrast to the aristocratic.
Finally, there is the romantic or chivalric morality, which subjects even the most well-born and divinely-favored knights to their ladies. Indeed, since Amidis is so completely the devotee of Oriana, it might be wondered whether he really serves God at all. When he accepts a dangerous fight with the giant Famongomadan, Amadis at first dismisses the concerns of his squire by trotting out the familiar religious morality: One might suppose that the romantic morality would come into direct conflict with the religious, if and when it leads to sex, but Rodriguez de Montalvo never uses words like fornication or adultery to describe sex out of wedlock.
He seems, however, to draw a distinction between sex and love and to invest the latter with a religious aspect — especially when the woman is in command. Common, purely sexual episodes result from passion and appetite, as in: They each take their pleasure and move on. The offspring of this union, Amidis, and his lover, Oriana, grow up together innocently, he serving as her page. Each confesses the most consuming desire for the other, and, as Amadis weeps and loses the power of speech, Oriana promises to give herself to him pp.
Amadis of Gaul is evidence of this unique form of worship. A classic tale of knights, damsels and eh I was going to compare this to a soap until i realised it is, but a very particular kind of soap opera, namely WWE: You see god decides all combats in this universe so the good guy is always guaranteed to win, only magic or traps capable of overruling god.

The poetic epics have surprisingly better action sequences, Song of RolandIdylls of the KingThe Faerie Queene and Orlando Furioso i would all rate higher baula this both in action and story. However its still entertaining and with enough variety to keep me interested. There arn’t any kick ass females like in some of the other works i’ve mentioned but there are a couple i liked, a good female sorceror ee makes a change and my favourite the ‘Damsel of Denmark’ who’s almost like an intelligence officer, constantly moving about delivering messages, sorting out problems and gathering intel.
The main characters Amadis and his lady seem a lot like the film version of Aragorn and Arwen. Vaula Aragorn doesn’t burst into tears as much as Amadis ; Note, i say film version its not quite the same in the book with Aragorn mostly based on Sigurd the Volsungaka Siegfried from Wagner’s ring cycle. I preferred his brother Galour who is sneaky when he needs to be and is definitely not a one woman guy unlike weepy Amadis.
There are a lot of characters and i couldn’t always remember who was related to whom, like other soaps it gets very complicated. Amadis for example has a brother, a foster brother, a half-brother and a female cousin he sometimes calls his sister.
Finally the entire 4th volume, is one long battle and an almost as long ending, its very ‘Return of the King’ film version, just keeps going: Still, amadia really expected to deduct a star from this for length versus entertainment but it actually managed to hold my interest better than expected.
Not as good as the poetic epics but decent cimic long comuc you don’t mind WWE gaaula fight rules: There’s a fairly good Librivox version, it uses multiple readers and while most are fine to good occasionally a difficult to parse accent will turn up, but i still found it useful to supplement my reading.
If I was to dee this story purely based on how influential it’s been, both in literature and society, throughtout the ages, it would get 5 stars. But as a piece of literature in its own amwdis it was simply not cohesive enough to gain more than 3 from this reader.

It may be the translation the only unabridged version available in English or the fact that with such old documents some bits and pieces may now be missing, but there were times where the narration contradicted itself or simply made If Amados was to judge this story purely based on how influential it’s been, both in literature and society, throughtout the ages, it would get 5 stars.

This was only a problem in Book I though. For the modern reader haula might not be that interesting and could probably use some sort of upgrade to make it more accessible, but as someone who likes to read really old books and chivalric romances, this was a decent read. Tough to get through at times as it of course does not amadus any modern rules of writing, but a fun story all in all.
Book II however, was quite the chore to get through. I much preferred ‘The History of the Kings of Britain’ by Geoffrey clmic Monmouth 4 starsbut do value the story of Amadis as a piece of important literary history.
Part of my project to read as many of the most important works for understanding Don Quijote before turning to that tome, I am sure this will not be wasted time, but rather will enhance my reading experience with the afore mentioned work. Which would in some way be a relief, as the plots and situations seem to get more and more repetitive and drawn out the further along gauka get. Read this if you are a comif of chivalric romances, wish to know more of the background for Don Q, are trying to read your way through the list or are a serious student of literary history and literature.
Otherwise I recommend starting with more accessible and slimmer works of this kind, for instance ‘History of co,ic Kings of Britain’. Jun 18, Benjamin rated it really liked it.
The constant reference to everyone as a dwarf, giant, or damsel was a little bit tiresome. It does get some bonus points for apparently being one of the originators of the genre.

Amadis of Gaul
Amadis is a Knight of knights, a boy, then a youth, then a man who can do no wrong, who wins every battle for there are many and rights every wrong for there are even more of these than battles. In fact, he’s really boring and predictable most of the time. Occasionally, he decides he’d be better off under a pseudonym like Knight of the Green Sword or Beltenebros.
But his contemporaries must have been pretty dim not to realise Mr. Perfect when they met him, no matter what he might call himself. There’s more jousting here than you can shake a stick at geddit??? Limbs, skulls, bones, vital organs – nothing is sacred as the swords of Amadis and his cohorts wend their righteously murderous way through various nations on escapades that are more morally justified than fighting National Socialism in Krakow in March,
