About this item

In a daring rewrite of literary history, contributors to this volume argue that the medieval poet, composer, and musician Guillaume de Machaut was the major influence in narrative craft during the late Middle Ages and long after. Examining Machaut's series of debate poems, part of the French tradition of dit amoureux (love tales), contributors highlight the genre's authorial self-consciousness, polyvocality, and ambiguity of judgment. They contend that Machaut led the way in developing and spreading these radical techniques and that his innovations in form and content were forerunners of the modern novel.Contributors: Lewis Beer | Linda Burke | Emma Cayley (DPhil Oxon) | Douglas Kelly | Rosemarie McGerr | Camille Naish | Elizaveta Strakhov | Helen Swift | Burt Kimmelman | R.
