Um Édipo medieval : o tempo das origens no prólogo do Tristan en Prose (Séc. XIII)
Ana Sofia Laranjinha
AbstractIn the Prologue to the Tristan en Prose, which tells ofthe misfortunes of Chelinde and Sador and of their son Apollo (ancestors ofthe hero ofthe romance), the use ofthe narrative outline ofthe Oedipus myth and the reinvention of the monster of Thebes reveals the medieval vision of pre-Christian times: cyclical character and regression, homicide and incest represent paganism. However, Apollo, although guilty of incest, will be the first Christian monarch of Léonois: the age of history, of punishment and redemption follows the cyclical and criminal.
