The book of the love-smitten heart by René( Book )

6 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Available only in Middle French and German translation until now, this volume constitutes the first full-length, French-English bilingual edition of Rene of Anjou's Livre du cuers d'amours espris, including all sixteen long-celebrated color plates, a critical introduction, notes on the translation, and a comprehensive bibliography." "The book tells the tale of desire and adventure as Heart - part of Rene torn from his body by Love - travels a complex allegorical landscape in quest of the lady Mercy, who is being held prisoner by a band of miscreants led by Refusal and Shame. Rene begs the reader to help him determine which of three entities is responsible for his torment: Fortune has led him to the lady whom he loves; once he arrived, Love, in the guise of his lady's gaze, struck his heart; and Destiny insists that he reflect upon her alone."--Jacket
