Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book titled The Legend of St Brendan: A Comparative Study of the Latin and Anglo-Norman Versions contains the table of contents, acknowledgements, and a list of abbreviations. Tzvetan Todorov's structural approach to the fantastic will be the starting point of the author's analysis of both versions of the Brendan narrative. The common elements in the two narratives of the Voyage of Brendan are roughly characterised by the events in the Navigatio. The narrative describes how Brendan, an abbot of three thousand monks, is inspired by Barrindus, a fellow abbot, to visit the Promised Land of the Saints. Brendan selects fourteen monks as his crew, although three late-comers implore that they should also travel.

Keywords:Anglo-Norman Voyage; Navigatio; St Brendan; Tzvetan Todorov
