The 45 articles selected here from the papers presented at the 5th Congress center around three themes: rhetoric and courtly literature, the audience of courtly literature, and courtly literature in a comparative perspective. There are contributions by specialists in Old French Literature on such diverse topics as Adenet le Roi, Rene dAnjou, Le Bel Inconnu, and 15th-century prose chronicles- by Provencalists on the eternal topic of courtly love- by Anglicists on Chaucer, Henryson, Malory, and others- by Germanists on Heinrich von Morungen, der Schwanritter, and Walther von der Vogelweide- by Hispanists on La Celestina and the Historia Troiana- there are also articles on Italian, Dutch, and Scandinavian literature, and two relating to Persian and Arabic courtly texts.
