From Book News, Inc. , June 1, 1996
Provides an overview of the current state of research on Machaut (ca. 1300-1377), a major figure in 14th century French music and poetry, with fair representation of the many areas of Machaut research that are pursued outside of music. The volume begins with a biography and a section covering his literary and musical legacy. Successive sections cover the current state of knowledge on each of the manuscripts including the newly-discovered Aberystwyth manuscript; the large narrative poems; the miniatures in all the illustrated Machaut manuscripts; a complete music, poetry, and discography with critical evaluation; and a bibliography of secondary works from 1740 to 1991 in English and several other languages.
