Charles, duc d'Orleans, prince and poet, was a captive in England for twenty-five years following the battle of Agincourt. The studies in this volume, by European and American scholars, focus on his life and actions during that time, and show him as a serious and learned reader, a cunning political figure (accomplished in the skills that would impress the English nobility around him), and a masterful poet, innovative, witty, and intensely self-aware. Discussion of his manuscripts, his social and political relationships, his extensive library, and his poetry in two languages reveal him as a shrewd observer of life, which in his poetry he describes in ways not seen again until the Renaissance. The contributors include: Michael K. Jones, William Askins, Gilbert Ouy, M. Arn, Claudio Galderisi, John Fox, R.C. Cholakian, A.C. Spearing, Derek Pearsall, Janet Backhouse, Jean-Claude Muhlethaler, and A.E.B. Coldiron.
