Jolyon Timothy Hughes, Ph.D., is assistant professor of German at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado.


Jolyon Timothy Huges presents an attractive discussion of Wolfram von Eschenbach's attitudes about the role of love and knighthood within the world of the courts... I full-heartedly agree with his argument that the entire notion of the Grail represents a form of utopia... Wolfram's familiarity with the Provence seems to be a fascinating and productive thesis that might explain his particular take on the idea of the Grail...Altogether, Hughes' study is pleasant, insightful, and productive...He collects valuable data concerning how many characters die as a result of courtly love and distorted ideals of knighthood, and he also demonstrates the extensive role played by "minor" female figures in the lives of the male protagonists... Hughes offers solid analysis of those studies cited here. German Studies Review
