Erec and Enide Summary

On Easter day, King Arthur decides to revive the tradition of hunting the white stag, and the next morning, they make ready for the hunt. Erec joins, unarmed except for his sword, to keep Queen Guinevere company. The queen sends her maiden to find out who a strange knight is, but the knight's dwarf whips the maiden and Erec. Erec decides to follow the knight until he can avenge Queen Guinevere and himself.

Erec learns that a collection of knights are in town...
