A better half to Alain Chartier: Father of French Eloquence brings jointly fourteen contributions that supply quite a number views and insights into the works of this unprecedented overdue medieval writer. As inheritor to the previous and bring in of the longer term, Chartier reinvented the normal, no matter if in Latin or French, verse or prose. Chartier's open-ended, dialogic works and his personal politically-engaged writing encouraged his successors to imagine and write in new methods approximately ethics, the individual's function in society, relationships among women and men, and the accountability of a poet to his/her viewers. As those essays express, Chartier's protection of poetic shape and content material had substantial impact over successive generations of writers in France and throughout Europe. members are: Adrian Armstrong, Florence Bouchet, Emma Cayley, Daisy Delogu, Ashby Kinch, James C. Laidlaw, Marta Marfany, Deborah McGrady, Joan E. McRae, Jean-Claude Muhlethaler, Liv Robinson, Camille Serchuk, Andrea Tarnowski, Craig Taylor, and Hanno Wijsman.

Close at hand also were important private libraries; the surviving manuscripts of the period include many commissioned by or dedicated to the royal dukes and prominent courtiers. The size of Chartier’s own library is unknown, but his books certainly included more than the Sallust to which reference was made earlier. That volume alone is an important witness to Chartier’s scholarly interests and his contacts with prominent churchmen. The undated inscription on the fly-leaf tells us that the manuscript had once belonged to Guillaume Boisratier, Archbishop of Bourges, and had been given to Chartier by John of Poitiers, Bishop of Valence, after the archbishop's death in 1421.

He loves, embracing both his state and the mission of expressing it, whatever pains or sorrows his sentiment entails. The speaker in Chartier’s early lay, by contrast, renounces any claims to love before making them. The Jugement dou roy de Behaingne, the second dit Machaut composed,8 shares with the Lay de plaisance the structure of a knight-lady twosome and a stand-alone narrator, and the entire 2000-line text is written in the decasyllabic verse quatrains that open the Lay de plaisance. But in Machaut’s work, it is the knight and lady who must contend with sorrow; the narrator is as content as can be.

The suspension of the Anglo-French war left knights and soldiery unemployed and the more ready to respond to calls for a Crusade. The Christian army raised against the Turks included representatives from across Europe but was chiefly composed of contingents from France and Burgundy. The expedition ended in disaster on 25 September 1396 at Nicopolis, where the crusading army was routed by a larger Ottoman force commanded by Sultan Bayezid (Bajazet).
