    Marie de France wrote in Francien, with some Anglo-Norman influence. She was proficient in Latin, as were most authors and scholars of that era, as well as Middle English and possibly is the author of the Lais of Marie de translated Aesop's Fables from Middle English into Anglo-Norman French and wrote Espurgatoire seint Partiz, Legend of the Purgatory of St. Patrick Genre: Lais, fables, saints' lives. "This edition includes Edward Gallagher's prose translations of The Lays of Marie de France "--Page 4 of cover. Description: xxxi, pages: map ; 23 cm: Other Titles: Lais. Responsibility: translated, with introduction and commentary, by Edward J. Gallagher.

    I have written a short story based on The Lay of the Were-Wolf, called Bisclavret (The Werewolf). VIII: THE LAY OF THE WERE-WOLF by Marie de France Amongst the tales I tell you once again, I would not forget the Lay of the Were-Wolf. Four works have been attributed to Marie de France, including 12 "Breton lais" (or lays), the "Ysopet" fables, the Legend of the Purgatory of St. Patrick, and, most recently, a saint's life called La Vie seinte Audree or The Life of Saint Audrey. Scholars have dated Marie's works between about at the earliest, and about at the latest.

    The twelve?lays? of Marie de France, the earliest known French woman poet, are here presented in sprightly English verse by poet and translator David R. Slavitt. Traditional Breton folktales were the raw material for Marie de France's series of lively but profound considerations of love, life, death, fidelity and betrayal, and luck and fate.   Though little is known about Marie de France, her work changed romantic writing forever. "The Lays of Marie de France" challenged social norms and the views of the church during the twelfth century concerning both love and the role of women. She wrote within a court unknown to scholars, in a form of Anglo-Norman French.
