Item description for Poems of Cupid, God of Love: Christine De Pizan's Epistre Au Dieu D'Amours and Dit De LA Rose; Thomas Hoccleve's the Letter of Cupid by Thelma S. Fenster...

The lightheartedness of these works both masks and enhances their engagement with provocative issues of continuing interest today: conduct in society, literary practice and moral praxis, relations between men and women, the value of received wisdom. This volume offers texts of two medieval French poems by Christine de Pizan: the Epistre au dieu d'amours and Dit de la Rose, together with the first translation of these poems into modern English. The medieval English adaptation of Christine's Epistre, Thomas Hoccleve's The Letter of Cupid, is likewise presented here, and provided with a modern English translation. Finally, an eighteenth-century version of Hoccleve's poem, George Sewell's The Proclamation of Cupid, is edited here for the first time. The editions of these poems by Christine, last edited a century ago, are based on the most recent scholarly findings. The edition of Hoccleve's poem reproduces its authorial punctuation from manuscript for the first time, and thus sheds light on the vexed question of fifteenth- century English metrics. The lively modern English translations of both can be used by students, scholars, and the general reader.
