Translators for FRETS (French of England Translation Series)

This series recognizes that the French literature of medieval England is a literature in its own right, worthy of translation and thus of the refreshed intercultural exchange and interliterary conversation that can exist only with difficulty, or not at all, without translation. FRETS provides distinguished volumes in translation for all interested readers, including but not restricted to scholars and students. FRETS represents a first articulated effort to bring to speakers of English a considerably fuller understanding of medieval English culture and literature (so much of which is in French) than that allowed by the very few well-known works of the French of England hitherto translated into English (such as Marie de France’s lais and the Chanson de Roland).  For more information, see the Publication page for FRETS.
