Romance Epic: Essays on a Medieval Literary Genreby Hans-Erich Keller (Editor)
The collection of essays in Romance Epic expertly examines the Romance epic as a genre, delving into its ever-changing period, audience, and region. The essays span across a wide range of different topics: the specificity of the Romance epic and how well it fits into the genre of epic at all, the structure of the chansons de geste, school influences on the Old French, the reconstruction of lost chansons de geste, the evolution of the genre through centuries, and topics specific to certain works, such as problems in the Chanson de Roland and the El Cantar de Mio Cid.
