A brand new copy of the translations of 11 great Medieval French romance stories. As written in the introduction by Dr. Goodrich: "Love is still associated with springtime, with music, with birds, and with flowers. And so even today, we can enter the quiet studies and the flowering gardens of the medieval men and women of letters as if into familiar surroundings. They, now dead, are still our teachers and guides in the ways of love."
