From Honour to Amor
The Fables Pierre Aufons and its Parodic Sequel in Paris, BnF, naf. 7517

  • Publication type: Article from a collective work
  • Collective work: Parodies courtoises, parodies de la courtoisie
  • Author: Morcos (Hannah)
  • Abstract: This article takes Gérard Genette’s theory of transtextuality as a starting point for exploring Paris, BnF, naf. 7517, in which the Fables Pierre Aufons are followed by a unique sequel on love and then chivalry. The redactor of the Fables transforms his Latin hypotext, Petrus Alfonsi’s Disciplina clericalis, into a vernacular story collection. The sequel in ms. 7517 goes one step further, both parodying the didactic agenda of the Fables and simultaneously the models of Arthurian romance invoked.
