Summary:
The core of this book on the French verse Alexander in France and Italy was written by eminent Alexander specialist David J.A. Ross, who left an incomplete typescript at his death. The baton was taken up by an international team of specialists in medieval literature and art history, Maud Pèrez-Simon, author of 'Les manuscrits du Roman d'Alexandre en prose', and Alison Stones, author of 'Manuscripts Illuminated in France: Gothic Manuscripts 1260-1320'. In its emphasis on illustration, this book complements the volumes of the 'Alexander Redivivus series' and offers new perspectives on the reception of one of the most popular medieval heroes of history and legend. It forms a sequel to Ross's collected essays and his 'Illustrated Medieval Alexander-Books in Germany and the Netherlands', to the work of the editors in the field of medieval manuscripts, and to the first volume in the 'Manuscripta Illuminata series', on the illustrations of Valerius Maximus in French.
