L’histoire d’Hasting : un récit bref dans le long temps des chroniques normandes

Abstract : The 15 original essays in this volume represent only a few of the paths that Glyn Burgess’s research career has taken: lays, by Marie de France and unknown authors; manuscript collections of lays and fabliaux; episodic narratives, from ancestral/​outlaw romance and Norman vernacular historiography; transformations of the Brendan legend; and authorial voice in religious texts, including Wace’s. The diversity of content and approaches has created a volume which will serve both as a fitting tribute to Burgess’s continuing influence and expertise, as well as a contribution to the growing theoretical and applied work in the area of the short narrative, which the authors extend to a very broad range of works, from fabliau to hagiography, from history to myth. This breadth of interest, within a close and analytical focus on short narrative, make this an important, indeed unique, collection.
