Aucassin and Nicolette Synopsis

Aucassin and Nicolette is an anonymous medieval French fictional story. It is the unique example of a chantefable, literally, a ‘sung story’, a combination of prose and verse. The work probably dates from the late 12th or early 13th century, and is known from only one surviving manuscript, discovered in 1752 by medievalist Jean-Baptiste de La Curne de Sainte-Palaye.
