schema:description""This anthology provides many first-ever English translations of this important writer's works, including three of his major narrative poems (Le Paradis d'Amours, L'Espinette amoureuse, and Le Joli Buisson de Jonece), several of his shorter dits and debats, a sampling of his other lyric genres, and excerpts from the long verse romance Meliador. The varied selections give readers a sense of Froissart's range, and the dual-language presentation allows both scholars and students access to these significant texts, while inviting simultaneous study of the subtleties of the original French."--Jacket."@en
