Jean de Saintré : une carrière chevaleresque au XVe siècle

0.00 CHF tax incl.

Jehan de Saintré is a disconcerting romance, often described as a pastiche of Arthurian romance, presenting a nostalgic knight, a believer in outdated ideals. If, however, one compares Saintré's destiny to the destinies of heroes of chivalrous biographies, like Jacques de Lalain or Boucicaut, one finds that far from being estranged from his world, Saintré moves with perfect ease in courtly society and perhaps embodies a new kind of chivalry. This wordly chivalry, obsessed with appearance, no longer interested in social mission, is happy serving the prince. Closer to chivalrous biographies than to other fifteenth-century romances which, for their part, perpetuate more or less the Arthurian chivalric model, Saintré traces the career not of a courtly knight but of a courtier.
