Review:

"This is an extraordinarily useful collection of essays that will be of interest to Chartier experts and newcomers alike. It engages with the major critics and trends in Charterian scholarship, opening it up in new directions and suggesting possibilities for yet further research [...]. Each individual essay makes a unique contribution while also coinciding with the volume's overall aims; the collection's thorough citations will be valuable to any scholar, as will the selected bibliography of primary and secondary sources." Kathleen A. Loysen, Montclair State University. In: Renaissance Quarterly, Vol. 70, No. 2 (Summer 2017), pp. 645-646.

Book Description Brill, Netherlands, 2015. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. A Companion to Alain Chartier: Father of French Eloquence brings together fourteen contributions that offer a range of perspectives and insights into the works of this exceptional late medieval author. As heir to the past and herald of the future, Chartier reinvented the traditional, whether in Latin or French, verse or prose. Chartier s open-ended, dialogic works and his own politically-engaged writing inspired his successors to think and write in new ways about ethics, the individual s role in society, relationships between men and women, and the responsibility of a poet to his/her audience. As these essays show, Chartier s renovation of poetic form and content had considerable influence over successive generations of writers in France and across Europe. Contributors are: Adrian Armstrong, Florence Bouchet, Emma Cayley, Daisy Delogu, Ashby Kinch, James C. Laidlaw, Marta Marfany, Deborah McGrady, Joan E. McRae, Jean-Claude Muhlethaler, Liv Robinson, Camille Serchuk, Andrea Tarnowski, Craig Taylor, and Hanno Wijsman. Seller Inventory # TNP9789004272187
