The main aim of this study of the second continuation of the Perceval of Chrétien de Troyes is to establish exactly what it consists of, where it begins and ends, whether it is a single unit — and if not to what extent it is not — and, having examined the question which which manuscripts appear best to represent the primitive text, to resolve any textual problems, firstly through this examination of the manuscript tradition, and secondly with the help of a glossary. The disputed attribution of the text to Wauchier de Denain is briefly examined, as are questions of literary influence.
