Jehan De Vignay and His Influence on Early English Literature

Snavely, Guy E.

Although we find but a cursory mention of Jehan de Vignay in the works on old French literature by Petit de Julleville, Suchier and Birch-Hirschfeld, G. Gröber and Voretzsch, he must have enjoyed somewhat of a reputation during the early part of the fourteenth century. That fact we can judge from the numerous extant manuscripts and incunabulum editions of his works. I have not been able to find any definite date for his birth or for his death. In fact what little I have been able to gather has been found mostly in his own works.
