What Reviewers Are Saying
"A pleasant collection of medieval tales intended for light reading. There are the usual bits and pieces from the Arthurian legend, from the lais and the collections like the Decameron, from saints' lives, and from the moralized exempla of the preachers' handbooks, all illustrating the lighter side of the extraordinarily rich tradition of medieval narrative art."--Virginia Quarterly Review "Every medievalist with a sense of humor has wanted to do this sort of book, but too few have. Morris Bishop gives us a delightful collection of medieval storytelling, ranging from the twelfth to the fifteenth century, in Latin, Norse, French, Spanish, Italian, and English. Recommended for all popular collections and especially for children."--Library Journal
