This major reference work is the fourth volume in the series Arthurian Literature in the Middle Ages. Its intention is to update the French and Occitan chapters in R.S. Loomis’s Arthurian Literature in the Middle Ages: A Collaborative History (Oxford, 1959) and to provide a volume which will serve the needs of students and scholars of Arthurian literature. The principal focus is the production, dissemination and evolution of Arthurian material in French and Occitan from the twelfth to the fifteenth century. Beginning with a substantial overview of Arthurian manuscripts, the volume covers writing in both verse (Wace, the Tristan legend, Chrétien de Troyes and the Grail Continuations, Marie de France and the anonymous lays, the lesser known romances) and prose (the Vulgate Cycle, the prose Tristan, the Post-Vulgate Roman du Graal, etc.). Chapters are also devoted to manuscript compilations, late medieval Arthurian literature, the Arthurian tradition in Occitan literature and Arthur in modern French fiction and film. The contributors provide authoritative summaries of recent research in the field, including aspects such as the intertextuality of Arthurian literature and the socio-political and cultural context of Arthurian works. Each text or author is treated in a sufficiently independent way for the reader to be able to use the volume as a work of reference.

At the end of the famous legend, when he departs for Avalon, King Arthur is inextricably linked to Glastonbury. Or is he? Marilyn Floyde reminds us that, in the earliest stories, he is also linked to France, or Gaul as it was then called. There is a theory that King Arthur could have performed his last heroic deeds in Burgundy. Or more specifically, in the ancient town of Avallon . Why has the Avallon in Burgundy largely been ignored, when it was the only real place of that name in existence in the fifth century? Perhaps there was a conspiracy perpetrated by unscrupulous medieval monks in England, designed to deprive France of a thousand years of tourist income... These theories are put to the test in this intriguing work. Follow the intrepid author as she explores the beautiful Burgundy countryside, on an investigative trail through history, religion and warfare, and into the magical realms of Arthurian legend.

It's not the knights and ladies, the fantastic adventures, or the erotic tests that interest Bruckner (French, Boston College) so much as the means of attaining narrative complexity, particularly in the shifting of authorial stances and the meanings of signs. She examines five 12th-century poems, complete and fragmentary, famous and obscure, long and short. Does not assume a knowledge of French. Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

“A delightful and courageous tale and a romping good read. Voila!” —Mark Greenside, author of I’ll Never Be French (No Matter What I Do) William Alexander is more than a Francophile. He wants to be French. There’s one small obstacle though: he doesn’t speak la langue française. In Flirting with French, Alexander sets out to conquer the language he loves. But will it love him back? Alexander eats, breathes, and sleeps French (even conjugating in his dreams). He travels to France, where mistranslations send him bicycling off in all sorts of wrong directions, and he nearly drowns in an immersion class in Provence, where, faced with the riddle of masculine breasts, feminine beards, and a turkey cutlet of uncertain gender, he starts to wonder whether he should’ve taken up golf instead of French. While playing hooky from grammar lessons and memory techniques, Alexander reports on the riotous workings of the Académie française, the four-hundred-year-old institution charged with keeping the language pure; explores the science of human communication, learning why it’s harder for fifty-year-olds to learn a second language than it is for five-year-olds; and, frustrated with his progress, explores an IBM research lab, where he trades barbs with a futuristic hand-held translator. Does he succeed in becoming fluent? Readers will be as surprised as Alexander is to discover that, in a fascinating twist, studying French may have had a far greater impact on his life than actually learning to speak it ever would. “A blend of passion and neuroscience, this literary love affair offers surprise insights into the human brain and the benefits of learning a second language. Reading William Alexander’s book is akin to having an MRI of the soul.” —Laura Shaine Cunningham, author of Sleeping Arrangements “Alexander proves that learning a new language is an adventure of its own--with all the unexpected obstacles, surprising breakthroughs and moments of sublime pleasure traveling brings.” —Julie Barlow, author of Sixty Million Frenchmen Can’t Be Wrong
