Description

"Huon d’Auvergne" is the last major unedited Franco-Italian romance epic, dated to 1341 in the first manuscript and 1441 in the last. At over 12,000 lines long, in three different versions with an additional fragment, in a gamut of language running from close to Old French through mixed French and Italian to Italian, it has so far resisted editing. A team of six international collaborators has received an NEH grant for an on-line edition and will be at the half-way point for the 2015 International Medieval Conference. We propose to present briefly our different pieces of the project and, we hope, get feedback from others present, who have editing and translating experience. We also hope to hear what other scholars might find most useful about our site, since actually putting the edition and translation on line will begin shortly after the presentation.
