TheWigalois of Wirnt von Grafenberg describes the life of Gawein's son Gwigalois. The main plot is preceded by a backstory about the protagonist's parents, while the narrative ends with a wish for a sequel about the exploits of Gawein's grandson, Lifort Gawanides. The present study takes its starting point from the observation that the hero's family affiliation is a fundamental motif in Wigalois. The novel not only describes a basic form of genealogical continuity through the transition from father to son. The growing up of the hero and his integration into social structures are also discussed. The parent-son relationship proves to be problematic insofar as the main protagonist appears almost programmatically without a father. The author discusses the dimensions of meaning of the terms generation and storytelling and works out the relationship constellations and the text structures. A profound and documented text analysis illuminates the relationships between social relationship patterns and narrative strategies of presentation.
