Terracher, A. L., La Chevalerie Vivien (Book Review)

Weeks, Raymond

The Chevalerie Vivien has waited many years for an adequate edition. Jonckbloet published the poem in his, at the time, valuable work: Guillaume d’Orange, La Haye, 1854, and included a relation of its events in his Guillaume d’Orange, Chanson de Geste XIIe Siècle, Amsterdam, 1867. His edition was unfortunate in being a composite based on two manuscripts not of the best. One result of the Jonckbloet edition was that the poem was not esteemed at its true value. This condition of affairs will be remedied by the excellent edition of Mr. Terracher.
