"These are elegant, sprightly, witty versions of five lais by Marie de France plus other texts central to the courtly tradition. To translate from Old French into today's idiom in verse is a daunting feat; Patricia Terry meets the challenge with intelligence and brio. Ideal for classroom use."—William Calin, author of The French Tradition and the Literature of Medieval England

"Here are irresistibly engaging tales of romantic love with almost uncanny psychological underlayers. Terry's translation remains true to the literal text as it brilliantly conveys to modern audiences the pulse and passions of life and love."—Harriet Spiegel, editor and translator of Marie de France: Fables
