However, although they form a vital and varied body of verse, their literary achievements have been represented almost exclusively, and to some extent atypically, by the Chanson de Roland." "This volume offers a selection in translation of the surviving chansons. The poems translated here, 'Gormont and Isembart', 'The Song of William', 'Charlemagne's Pilgrimage', 'Raoul of Cambrai', 'Girart of Vienne' and 'The Knights of Narbonne', are taken from all three Old French epic song cycles, and - apart from their individual merits - display the complete range of themes, episodes and character types which were the life-blood of the chanson de geste genre. They vary considerably in metre and narrative length, tone and diction, but all reflect the general development in the artistic modes and social purposes of this heroic poetry during the main period of its popularity; the translation aims to preserve the dynamic, musical quality of the orally-transmitted originals. Each is accompanied by an introduction and a select bibliography."--book jacket." ;
