PARIS, BIBLIOTHÈQUE NATIONALE, MANUSCRIT
MOREAU 1724, f. 302—20

[302r] 1 Extrait du Roman d'Eréc et Enide

Apres un prologue de l'Auteur qui n'a pas beaucoup d'objet, il entre en matiere et dit qu'au temps de Pasque le roy Artus tenoit une cour superbe dans son chateau de Caradigant; mais, avant que la cour se séparat,

Li rois a ses chevaliers dit 2
Qu'il voloit le blanc cerf chasier 3
Por la coutume 4 ressaucier. (36—8)

Le projet déplut beaucoup a Gauvain. Il dit au roy: `Cette chasse 5 ne produira rien de bon. Vous scavez que celuy qui est assez heureux pour tuer le cerf doit baiser la plus belle de la cour; nous en avons plus de cent 6 qui pretendent a ce titre,

Et n'i a nule n'ait ami (53)

qui par consequent ne la trouve la plus belle.'

Li rois respont: `Ce sai je bien,
Mais por ce n'en lairai je rien;
Car ne doit estre contredite
Parole puis que rois l'a dite.' (59—62)

Ils partirent donc pour aller chasser le cerf dans la forest aventureuse, et cette chasse est fort dangereuse. La reine Genevre 7 y vint aussy suivie d'une meschine:

Pucelle 8 estoit, fille de roy 9,
Et sist sur un blanc palefroy 10.
