Based on the edition of Wolfgang Van Emden published by the t<'e> des Anciens Textes Francais/> in 1972 from the British Museum's 13th-century copy, this translation of Bertrand's highly influential recreation of the life and exploits of a leading Carolingian nobleman preserves most of the formal properties of the original text using the traditional assonance patterning, although the full rhyme is impossible to achieve in English.
