Author(s): McCash, June Hall.
Title : The Hawk-Lover in Marie de France's "Yonec" [Allusions to hunting and hawk imagery play an important role in this poem. Although hawks and falcons could hold many different meanings to medieval writers, Marie draws upon courtly conventions that compare the knight and lover to a hawk pursuing his prey. In her poem, she reverses the predatory imagery associated with hawks by making the knight (who transfomrs into a hawk) a symbol of faithful love and self-sacrafice. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
