Example text

28 If one looks at the Lais to see how much they reflect contemporary social practice or geography, one finds interesting references to suggest that Marie or her alleged storyteller had updated the narratives to reflect Marie’s own particular time. Her knowledge of the geographical route used to travel from Great Britain to Normandy in the 12th century29 and her acquaintance with the physical settings of tales in Normandy (Les Deus Amanz) and Wales (Milun) provide a contemporary itinerary and backdrop to her lais.

Marie de france and the learned tradition 39 particularly close resemblance: an Indian story called The Fan Prince and a Russian tale, The Resplendent Falcon. 26 In the other eight lais of Marie there is precious little to tie her work to Celtic folklore once the names of characters and the geographical settings are excepted. In fact, study of these lais reveals Marie’s knowledge of classical literature and of both the Latin and vernacular literature of the 12th century. 27 In Chaitivel the De Amore of Andreas Capellanus has been offered and for Laüstic close ties are demonstrated for Ovid.

She begins here with the same justification for writing that she offered in the opening verses of the General Prologue and the prologue of the Fables, that each person should spend his or her time on a worthy cause. She also highlights here the importance of memory (souvenir), just as she has done before in her prologues. Furthermore, Marie ends the Audree with an epilogue that emphasizes material from previous prologues and epilogues, particularly the significance of memory: Issi ay ceo livre finé En romanz dit et translaté De la vie seintë Audree Si com en latin l’ay trové, Et les miracles ay oÿ, Ne voil nul mettrë en obli.
