Le Livre de Alixandre empereur de Constentinoble et de Cligés son filz : roman en prose du XVe siècle

Edited by Maria COLOMBO TIMELLI

0.00 CHF tax incl.

Preserved in a manuscript from the library of Philip the Good dated 26 March 1455, the Livre de Alixandre is a prose adaptation of Chrétien de Troyes’s Cligès. However, several added details, an extra episode and a profusion of apparently trivial variations make it an original work. This ‘new’ novel is a document characteristic of its time and reflects the preoccupations of the Burgundy court that was then at the height of its power.
