Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from A Dictionary of Medieval Romance and Romance Writers The term romance is so wide in its modern acceptance, and so loose in its application, that it will be well at the outset to attempt to formulate a definition of the word, which will also serve to define the scope of this work. Briefly, a romance may be described as a tale written at any period between the eleventh and fourteenth centuries, which deals with the age of chivalry. The narrower meaning of the word can only be applied to such tales of chivalry and love as were written in the Roman (that is, in Old French). Jean Bodel, a French romancer who flourished in the twelfth century, sings - Ne sont que trois matieres a nul home entendant, De France, de Bretagne, et de Rome la grant. Thus the tales of Charlemagne, Arthur, and Rome (that is, of ancient history), alluded to in the verse, were held by Jean as the only themes which a contemporary poet might worthily sing of. But no such bounds can be set to the great Empire of Romance by its modern students. Since Bodel s day its frontiers have been extended into regions that he did not know of. But it is necessary to exercise care in fixing its limits in order that territory which does not rightly belong to it is not included; in other words, that only those bodies of literature which have been evolved from it, have affinities with it, or are of the same genre or class, should be included. Thus, the Celtic prototypes of the Arthurian romance deserve inclusion, as do those Italian and Spanish tales which were adapted in the Peninsulas from the romances of Arthur and Charlemagne. The British Isles also produced a wealth of Arthurian romance of their own, and examples of this have been included. As regards the great Teutonic cycles of story, it has been thought well to include these. They are of the same genre, and, at least, as much romantic in spirit, as the subjects of the Matiere de Bretagne, or, at any rate, that part of it which emanated from France. Many of the Icelandic saga-stories have also been included for a similar reason. A dividing line has been drawn where the tale is either purely historical or mythological in its purport. Such examples must be relegated to their proper sphere - that of pure myth: they have no place in a dictionary of romance. But wherever the elements or traces of myth have been observed in a romance, such a circumstance has not militated against its inclusion, and an effort has been made in each case to elucidate the mythological references and obscurities where these occur. Such being the scope of the work, the reader will look in vain through its pages for reference to such works as are included in the term romance in its more modern sense.
