The romances of Chrétien de Troyes by Joseph J Duggan( )

16 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 1,857 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Twelfth-century French poet Chretien de Troyes was one of the most influential figures in Western literature, for his romantic poems on the legend of King Arthur gave rise to a tradition of storytelling that continues to this day. This book is a study of all of Chretien's work: Erec and Enide, Cliges, Yvain: The Knight of the Lion, Lancelot: The Knight of the Cart, and Perceval: The Tale of the Grail." "Joseph J. Duggan organizes the organizes the book in chapters that focus on major issues in Chretien's romances rather than on individual works."--Jacket

The Cantar de mio Cid : poetic creation in its economic and social contexts by Joseph J Duggan( Book )

16 editions published between 1989 and 2008 in English and held by 548 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this study, Joseph Duggan interprets the Cantar de mio Cid as a work that transmutes moral values first into the economic values of a gift economy, then into genealogical values. Considering the poem's distortions of history more significant than its retention of historical features, Duggan ascribes its depiction of the penurious hero who acquires wealth, power, and kinship alliances to the Castilian monarchy's preoccupations with furthering the victory of Las Navas de Tolosa. He maintains that the Cantar de mio Cid was composed around the year 1200 in substantially the form in which we have it now, in the course of a singer's performance. Arguing against a number of tendencies in Cid scholarship, Professor Duggan denies the necessity of assuming that the poet was a man of learning, that he was directly influenced by French literature, or that he was familiar with written law
A concordance of the Chanson de Roland by Joseph J Duggan( Book )

8 editions published in 1969 in English and French, Old and held by 447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The song of Roland : translations of the versions in assonance and rhyme of the Chanson de Roland by Joseph J Duggan( Book )

47 editions published between 1969 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite its status as a masterpiece of world literature, the "Song of Roland" has only been available in translations based on the Oxford manuscript whose text dates to around 1100. But the medieval corpus of the "Roland" consists of seven substantial manuscripts, two in assonance and five in rhyme. The only complete text among the rhymed versions is found in two manuscripts housed respectively in Châteauroux and Venice, and thus known as CV7, which has never before been translated into a modern language. CV7 dates to the end of the twelfth century. It introduces five new episodes and expands others substantially, transforming the substance and sense of the narrative. Students of the epic and those taking courses on medieval literature and history will experience the vitality and mutability of the genre in the course of the century in which many of the great French epics and romances were composed
