Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Variously described as a comedy of manners, a psychological romance, and a type of fabliau, the remarkable 13th-century verse narrative Flamenca is regarded as the best medieval romance written in Occitan. Not only a love story, the poem is layered with responses to the troubadour tradition of love and poetry, as well as the Bible and the classics. This fine, unforced translation is unrhymed and line- for-line, on pages facing the original text. It adheres as closely as possible to the original. The edition follows the recent text prepared by Gschwind. Includes an invaluable introduction, a substantial bibliography, and notes to the text and translation. Annotation c.
