  • A Perceforest Readerby Nigel Bryant

    Boydell & Brewer Group Ltd 2013; US$ 14.57

    Perceforest' is one of the largest and certainly the most extraordinary of the late Arthurian romances, and is almost completely unknown except to a handful of scholars. But it is a work of exceptional richness and importance, and has been justly described as "an encyclopaedia of 14th-century chivalry" and "a mine of folkloric motifs". Its contents... more...

    The Edwin Mellen Press 2009; US$ 139.95

    This study examines how the fictional works of contemporary French female authors can be read as a unique fantasy world in which the writer consciously manipulates the reader’s (and spectator’s) narrative expectations with explicit articulations of female desire. In addition, this work offers a literary and psychoanalytic reading of lesser-known... more...

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 252.00

    Until now, there has been no critical text of the Châteauroux Roland, only transcripts. The present edition offers a lightly emended text with detailed footnotes evaluating variant readings and their implications. This preserves the intrinsic features of C and reveals its authority, but the evidence invalidates Segre?s thesis of the anteriority of... more...

    UNP - Nebraska Paperback 2014; US$ 35.00

    Drawing on literary theory and canonical French literature, Reading Unruly examines unruliness as both an aesthetic category and a mode of reading conceived as ethical response. Zahi Zalloua argues that when faced with an unruly work of art, readers confront an ethical double bind, hesitating then between the two conflicting injunctions of either... more...
