Radically changed from the first edition, this new version contains ten French tales (Rickard), ten Spanish (Deyermond), thirteen English and six Italian (Brewer), ten German (Blamires), six Dutch (Johnson), and twenty-five Latin (Lapidge). Brewer's wide-ranging introduction covers everything from the function of humour to the persistence of folk-tale motifs in the 20th century. MEDIUM AEVUM The highlight of the book is Brewer's introduction. In his survey of forms of humor and the nature of comic tales in European literature, he displays his uncommon learning and even more uuncommon common sense. ARTHURIANA
