This appears at the beginning of The Ebony Tower by John Fowles, but the book does not offer a translation of it, so I was wondering if anyone here could tell me what it says.

Et par forez longues et less
Par leus estranges et sauvages
Et passa mainz felons passages
Et maint peril et maint destroit
Tant qu'il vint au santier tot droit....

~Chretien De Troyes, Yvain
