De l’ordenance du Meliador de Jean Froissart à la lecture du Livre de chevalerie de Geoffroy de Charny, traité de l’Ordre de l’Étoile

  • Publication type: Article from a collective work
  • Collective work: L’Œuvre littéraire du Moyen Âge aux yeux de l’historien et du philologue
  • Author: Lacassagne (Miren)
  • Abstract: Joint readings of the Meliador by Jean Froissart and the Livre de chevalerie by Geoffroy de Charny reveal structural and ideological similarities which derive from the chivalric ethic of the late Middle Ages. If the narrative fiction and the treaty converge around the definition of military excellence, the story borrows significant details from the code of the Order of the Star, a feature which invites us to connect the two texts, and establish a link between the history of France, and literature.
