Marie de France’s Lais Online

Along with Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, which I mentioned yesterday, I have now also added the Breton lais of Marie de France to the website.

Here’s a quick run-down of the full contents that are online – you can also get it all of Marie de France’s lais as an eBook for easier reading.

And if you’re interested I have written a short story based on The Lay of the Were-Wolf, called Bisclavret (The Werewolf).
