Synopsis

"In Honorat Bovet's reformist dream vision (1398), the shade of Jean de Meun leads a panel of Christian, Muslim, and Jewish speakers in castigating European chivalry and clergy for their dereliction during a time of war and schism. In a rare gambit, Bovet boldly gives voice to a "Saracen" nobleman, who offers the most stinging reproaches of the group. This critical edition restores the author's seventy-five Latin marginalia, an indispensable interpretive tool largely overlooked in previous published versions, and presents the French text accompanied by a facing-page English translation and extensive notes."
