Reviews

“The decision to place a Middle French edition beside a Modern French translation allows a sure understanding of the text, and, at the same time permits a glance at a state of the French language when greater fluidity and less stasis were its trademarks . . .” – Prof. Daniel E. O’ Sullivan, University of Mississippi

“. . . the volume offers a text established with an extreme philological rigor resting on a dynamic principle of respect for the medieval manuscript, a tradition that is both precise and enlightening, which will ably guide the reader to a clear understanding of the medieval text.” – Prof. Claudio Galdersi, Université de Poiters
