Book review

"An impressive collection of essays which attest to the range and variety of Froissart’s literary output. . . . [It] ranges not only ‘across the genres’ but also across the ateliers that subsequently reproduced Froissart’s works in manuscript."--Laurence de Looze, University of Western Ontario


Offering a new and comprehensive assessment of the works of Jean Froissart, one of the most engaging and prolific authors of the 14th century, this collection examines his writings across the broad spectrum of his literary and historical production. Froissart, an active participant in the political and literary life of his age, is regarded as one of its great synthesizing minds. These essays by an international array of scholars, including editors and translators of Froissart and many of his prominent critics, challenge unduly general views of his attitudes as a poet, writer, and historian grappling with the major sociopolitical and cultural issues of his turbulent and paradoxical period. Collectively addressing his work "across the genres," they offer new and nuanced perceptions of his engagement in the writing of selfhood, fiction, and history.
