This week, it’s medieval story time, with a tale that crosses over between fabliau and courtly love: The Ghost Knight. Danièle shares the story of how a knight manages to win his lady with a little supernatural sleight-of-hand.
The Ghost Knight was translated by Margaret Schlauch as part of her book Medieval Narrative: A Book of Translations. You can read it via Archive.org.
