Yvonne Vermijn studies the ‘Chanson de Bertrand du Guesclin’. This late fourteenth century epic poem paints a very positive picture of the life of Betrand du Guesclin, a French military commander during the Hundred Years’ War, and has played a decisive role in the way he has been remembered to the present day. Vermijn focuses on the primary reception of the Chanson between 1380 and 1618, in order to map out and explain the creation, transmission and dissemination of this text.
