I loved this book - the story itself in parallel text - Middle Ages French, and a modern French translation. Not having studied the literature of this period, I enjoyed the commentaries, placing it in its time as much as the narrative, - full of charming details like the little dog, and also full of treachery. A wonderful portrait of the Duke's wife as well as of the lover - le chevalier.
And the 15thC miniature on the cover perfectly conveys the atmosphere.
