Description

Despite their modest size, the "Lays of Marie de France" are among the finest flowerings of Medieval French literature. They are charming, witty, and imbued with the code of courtly love. This new edition of Edith Rickert's translations will appeal to the general reader as much as the medievalist. Revised and reset, a beautiful new edition. Edith Rickert (1871-1938) received her degree from Vassar in 1891, and returned there in 1886 to teach English. She received a PhD from the University of Chicago in 1899. In 1900 she went to England where she combined a busy career as a professional writer with academic research. She returned to the United States in 1909 and later lectured at the University of Chicago. During the First World War, she worked as a codebreaker. She was a talented linguist and medievalist.

Author Biography

Marie de France is thought to have been a noblewoman from the Isle de France or Normandy, living in England in the middle of the twelfth century. Her tales draw on the stories of her adopted country - both English and Celtic.
