Aucassian & Nicolette, a Chantefable from the Twelfth-century Minstrels: A Facing Page Translation
This work offers a long overdue, new facing-page English translation of Aucassin et Nicolette, the important Medieval French chantefable. The translator offers a prologue which serves to introduce the translation and to contextualize the work. This book contains 12 color photographs and 5 black and white photographs.
“The excellent translation and notes – the culmination of a decades-long fascination with the poem – render with nuance and sensitivity the uniqueness of the chant-fable. ... This is a tour de force of the translator’s art as well as a labor of love and discernment.” – Dr. Stephen G. Nichols, James M. Beall Professor of French and Humanities, Chair, Department of German and Romance Languages and Literatures, Johns Hopkins University
