Description

This collection is the first full-length literary study on Machaut, France’s leading poet and musician of the 14th century. Machaut’s narrative poems, called dits, have only been lightly studied. Here, author William Calin examines the works for their intrinsic merit and for their historical importance in influencing many writers, most notably Chaucer.

William Calin is professor of Romance Languages at the University of Oregon.
