Marie de France: Between Two Worlds
This presentation, given by Dr. Chantal Maréchal, is an introduction to the works of the first French female poet, Marie de France. It highlights significant similarities between her twelfth century world and ours, to explain how after eight centuries of neglect, her "Lays" have regained such popularity that within the last fifty years they have inspired over one thousand scholarly studies, online sites, audiobooks, and even a novel. Prof. Chantal Maréchal, Ph.D. is the author and editor of several studies on medieval literature and founding president of the International Marie de France Society.
