Description

This session focuses on Benoît de Sainte-Maure’s Roman de Troie. This twelfth-century poem not only fully developed the Troy story for the Middle Ages; it also influenced retellings of the story, directly or indirectly, throughout medieval and Renaissance Europe. In recognition of Glyn Burgess and Douglas Kelly’s 2017 modern English translation of the Roman de Troie (Boydell & Brewer), this session is intended to renew and invigorate the study of the poem.
