French Arthurian literature( )

16 editions published in 2007 in English and French, Old and held by 406 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The lay was a flourishing genre in the French courts of the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, related to romance rather as the modern short story is to the novel. Its most famous exponent is arguably Marie de France, but in addition to her twelve lays, a number of authors, mainly anonymous, have also come down to us, usually referred to as Breton lays or simply as narrative lays." "The eleven anonymous lays presented in this volume show the varied nature of the genre. First brought together as a collection by Prudence Tobin in 1976, they have been freshly edited from the manuscript sources. They are presented here with facing English translation, together with substantial introductions for each lay, which deal principally with thematic issues and questions of general literary interest."--BOOK JACKET

The Arthur of the French : the Arthurian legend in medieval French and Occitan literature by Glyn S Burgess( Book )

12 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This major reference work is the fourth volume in the series "Arthurian Literature in the Middle Ages". Its intention is to update the French and Occitan chapters in R.S. Loomis' "Arthurian Literature in the Middle Ages: A Collaborative History" (Oxford, 1959) and to provide a volume which will serve the needs of students and scholars of Arthurian literature. The principal focus is the production, dissemination and evolution of Arthurian material in French and Occitan from the twelfth to the fifteenth century. Beginning with a substantial overview of Arthurian manuscripts, the volume covers writing in both verse (Wace, the Tristan legend, Chretien de Troyes and the Grail Continuations, Marie de France and the anonymous lays, the lesser known romances) and prose (the Vulgate Cycle, the prose Tristan, the Post-Vulgate Roman du Graal, etc.). -- From publisher's website
Two medieval outlaws : Eustace the Monk and Fouke Fitz Waryn by Glyn S Burgess( Book )

16 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in English and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alongside the historical discussion of the lives of the protagonists of the two romances, Glyn Burgess reveals the multiple layers of the romances themselves: historically verifiable facts, information which cannot be proved but rings true, and a wide range of material which is manifestly imaginary, containing stock motifs also found in other romances of the period. His bringing to life of two forgotten outlaws is a fascinating context for his spirited translation of the romances themselves
The Spirit of the court : selected proceedings of the Fourth Congress of the International Courtly Literature Society (Toronto 1983) by International Courtly Literature Society( Book )

The Old French narrative lay : an analytical bibliography by Glyn S Burgess( Book )

16 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume presents an analytical bibliography of twenty narrative lays written in French in the late twelfth and early thirteenth centuries - Aristote, Conseil, Cor, Desire, Doon, Espervier, Espine, Graelent, Guingamor, Haveloc, Ignaure, Lecheor, Mantel, Melion, Nabaret, Oiselet, Ombre, Trot, Tydorel and Tyolet - seeking to provide a complete list of the editions, translations, and substantial studies which have been devoted to them over the years. The choice of the twenty poems corresponds to Donovan's The Bretton Lay, the only synthesis so far available on this topic in English. Most references are accompanied by a summary which analyses their contribution to the topic under discussion, covering the item's significance and interest rather than simply analysing the contents. Items found in works of reference and briefer studies forming part of books or articles are included where appropriate. Each individual bibliography is intended to stand independently, with full references given in each case for editions and translations cross-references to important items found in other parts of the volume are given at the end of each bibliography. The twenty parts are preceded by a general section which lists contributions to more than one lay."--Jacket
Chrétien de Troyes, Erec et Enide by Glyn S Burgess( Book )

14 editions published in 1984 in 4 languages and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The voyage of Saint Brendan : representative versions of the legend in English translation( Book )

15 editions published between 2002 and 2010 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The story of the voyage of the sixth-century Irish saint, Brendan the Navigator, is one of the greatest legends of the Middle Ages. To the nations of medieval Europe the ocean voyage became a metaphor for the perilous journey of the Christian soul in search of the Promised Land, and no spiritual odyssey attracted wider interest." "But Brendan's reach goes far beyond his medieval and monastic context. He is frequently cited as a discoverer of the New World - the search for the mythical St. Brendan's Isle was an important motif behind the voyages of Columbus. Brendan's story also has much in common with the Irish seafaring tales we know as immrama, and his voyage contributes to our understanding of the history of quest and travel literature, containing as it does echoes of the Odyssey and the Aeneid, Sinbad the Sailor and the quest for the Holy Grail." "This volume collects the most important versions of the voyage from a variety of cultures and presents them in modern English translations together with contextual introduction, explanatory commentaries and bibliography. The indexes in this new paperback edition allow easy comparison between the different versions."--BOOK JACKET
The History of the Norman people : Wace's Roman de Rou by Wace( Book )

11 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wace's Roman de Rou relates the origins of Normandy from the time of Rollo (Rou) to the battle of Tinchebray. Commissioned by Henry II, it was intended both to celebrate the Norman past and to justify the right of Norman rulers to the throne of England. The accounts it gives of the early life of William the Conqueror and of the battle of Hastings, which occupy a substantial portion of the work, make it a valuable historical document as well as an important work of literature."
