Quotes from book
The Romaunt of the Rose

The Romaunt of the Rose is a partial translation into Middle English of the French allegorical poem, le Roman de la Rose . Originally believed to be the work of Chaucer, the Romaunt inspired controversy among 19th-century scholars when parts of the text were found to differ in style from Chaucer's other works. Also the text was found to contain three distinct fragments of translation. Together, the fragments—A, B, and C—provide a translation of approximately one-third of Le Roman.
