  • Title: En Remembrance e en memoire: Grief, Memory, and Memorialization in the "Lais" of Marie de France ["My aim here is twofold: to explore how grief- the raw material of one kind of memory- is represented in the 'Lais,' and what those representations might tell us about attitudes toward death and commemoration at the time of Marie's transcription/transformation of the material of the "lais;" and then to demonstrate that in the "Lais" an object- the tomb- functions as a repository of grief and memory, and to suggest that the building of the tomb can be viewed as a metaphor for the construction of the "lai."
