French author and diplomat Alain Chartier (c. 1385-1440) is recognised as one of the few medieval poets to have maintained a successful reputation well into the Renaissance and beyond. His most celebrated and controversial work, the "Belle Dame Sans Merci" (Beautiful lady with no mercy) (1424) is not readily available in moden English translation elsewhere, making this an essential addition to any library with a medieval literature or French literature collection. The volume also includes a substantial introduction on Chartier and his time, the scandal of his poetry, the translations; notes and bibliography.
