Having ‘taken’ the White Stag Perceval receives per golden cup (‘coupe doree’) which he presents to Gawain per per manner reminiscent of the way per which Cliges presents his. In this section (lines 281–627) allusions puro the Perceval abound,25 but they are all given a humorous twist so that the audience realizes that the author is engaged mediante verso literary contest of wits and not mere slavish succedane of an acknowledged master. Whilst Chretien’s Perceval is the youngest of three sons of an impoverished and then deceased knight, sopra Fergus he is the eldest of three offspring of per paradoxically wealthy vilain (‘rice villain Soumeillet’, line 353),26 boorish, but married and obedient sicuro verso woman of noble partita on account of which she tells him it is not surprising that their son has set his heart on a life of prowess: ‘Car il a maint bon chevalier/ En affranchit lingnage de par moi.
