The material and cultural conditions in France and associated territories around the year 1100 unleashed what the scholar Charles Homer Haskins termed the "Renaissance of the 12th century" and, for over the next hundred years, writers, "jongleurs", "clercs" and poets produced a profusion of remarkable creative works in all genres. Marie de France was also active in this genre, producing the Ysopet (Little Aesop) series of fables in verse.

Claire Waters enriches the medieval context of her lucid translations by including informative appendices ranging from courtly love and society, to animal fables, to historical background, and important literary analogues. Stephen G. Nichols, Johns Hopkins University.

Marie de France (fl. 1160 to 1215) was a poet who was probably born in France and lived in England during the late 12th century. She lived and wrote at an unknown court, but she and her work were almost certainly known at the royal court of King Henry II of England. Virtually nothing is known of her life; both her given name and its geographical specification come from her manuscripts. However, one written description of her work and popularity from her own era still exists

Marie de France, one of the best known medieval women, is justly famous for her Lais, but her delightful longer work, the Fables, has yet to be properly appreciated by modern audiences. This jaunty collection of 103 tales is the earliest extant vernacular collection of fables from western Europe and, in the variety of its sources, anticipates the compilation done five centuries later by La Fontaine.

I recommend this book for two reasons: Marie de France's fables themselves and for the excellent work done by the translator. While Marie De France's fables are drawn from traditional sources, she has reworked them to provide a biting critic of judicial corruption, gender roles, and the abuse of power by royalty, among other topics. Her stories are filled with low-key wit and a sympathy for the oppressed. Harriet Spiegel has provided a translation that reads very well along with helpful notes that elucidate difficult points. If you are interested in medieval literature, you should own this book.

This edition is the first complete verse translation of Marie De France's influential fables into any modern language. I am blessed to have editor Harriet Spiegel as my mentor in my graduate studies. I am a fan of Harriet's editing and after reading this edition, it is clear that her practices are solely focused on preserving the text to carry out a most faithful translation of the scribe's 13th century original, while making emendations only when utterly necessary. I wish more editors would hold to this principle. Any patron of medieval literature should have this book! It is a treasure.
