There is something about Mediaeval Romances that modern day romances lack Take for instance Aucassin and Nicolette On the face of it the story might look too simple two lovers and his father doesn't like the girl Yet there is something far touching about Aucassin's repeating my sweet friend when describing Nicolette Somehow it makes his love seem far real I was even willing to forgive him his rather sexists views about women and love I actually wanted to introduce him to Anne from Persuasion and let her talk to himMost of the other tales are similar to others For instance there is a form of Marie de France's Lanvel There is a fore runner of Shakespeare's Cymbeline Of an interest however are the tale of King Florus and Jehne which features one of those crossing dressing heroines that Shakespeare so likes Also of interst is the Tal of Asrenth which is about Joseph's Egyptian wife
