Owing to the rich storehouse of information it contains, the poetry of Venantius Fortunatus (c. 535–600) has long been mined as a historical source for Merovingian society, a focus that overshadows an appreciation of the poems’ literary value. This volume, offering free-verse translations of Fortunatus’ personal poetry, remains faithful to the historical sweep of the poet’s lines while paying attention to the literary qualities that make these poems masterpieces of their kind.

The volume includes an overview of late antique Gaul, Fortunatus’ biography, interpretations of the poems, prosopographical introductions, maps, bibliography, and indices.
