9781331789499: Three Lays of Marie De France: Retold in English Verse (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Three Lays of Marie De France: Retold in English Verse

Such a grievance is the present writer's only excuse for attempting to make Marie de France better known to anglo-saxon readers. May she some day find a worthier sponsor!

Her poems are of the kind that defy translation. Poems whose beauty is due to sublimity of thought may be more or less successfully translated, but those which, like hers, are merely very charming, resemble many a pretty woman who never takes a good picture.
