'Floire and Blancheflor' and the European Romance (Cambridge Studies in Medieval Literature)

Patricia E. Grieve


This comparative learn examines Floire and Blancheflor and exhibits how medieval writers from Spain, France, Italy, England, and Scandinavia remodeled this tale from the 12th during the 16th centuries to strengthen and emphasize social, political, non secular and inventive ambitions. It exhibits the impression of a little-known medieval Spanish model, specially as a precursor to Boccaccio's Il Filocolo, and examines very important problems with the advance of prose fiction in medieval and Renaissance Europe.
