Book Overview
Renard the Fox is the first modern translation into English of one of the most important and influential medieval books. Valued for its comic spirit, its high literary quality, and its clever satire of feudal society, the tale uses animals to represent the members of various classes. This lively and accessible translation will be welcomed for courses in medieval literature and history, gender studies, and humanities, and will be a treat for the general reader as well.
