  • Title: The Daisy and the Laurel: Myths of Desire and Creativity in the Poetry of John Froissart [Froissart’s poetic persona fuses the identities of the cleric and the lover, and thus his poetry is both learned and secular. He adapts Ovidian myths (particularly those focusing on Apollo, a figure of both poetry and wisdom) to construct a mythographic basis for his intellectualized poetic identity and love psychology. At the same time, he adapts numerous mythic allusions to transform the daisy into a symbol of erotic desire, loss, and memory. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
