Abstract This essay analyzes the structure of Galeran de Bretagne in order to dispel the concept of it as a mere expansion of Marie de France's Lai le Fresne. Renaut, the author, has carefully plotted the course of the story beforehand, with a sense of proportion and direction. He controls the direction through a number of parallel scenes early and late and a series of tableaux that are dramatically vital, not static like woodcuts. Galeran can appropriately be considered an instance of what Chrétien de Troyes called une bele conjointure.
