Description

This monograph examines the medieval French translation/adaptation of Virgil's Aeneid. The work employs Relevance Theory, second language pedagogy and hermeneutics in its analysis. Dating from about 1160, the Roman d'Eneas, considered by medieval scholars a halcyon romance, reinvents Virgil's great Latin classic, the Aeneid, with compelling style. This monograph is a specialized and comparative literary analysis that focuses on the anonymous author's pivotal French text and his translation approach. Synthesizing through innovative and epistemological analyses, this study summarizes a wide variety of antecedent research, and represents a forty-year summation of archival investigation carried out principally in Western European libraries. It also incorporates modern-day, practical and interdisciplinary methodological strategies borrowed from cognitive psychology, second-language acquisition pedagogy and philosophical pragmatics.
