Summary Les Eschéz d'Amours' may be the last great medieval allegory to find its way into a modern edition. In the tradition of the 'Roman de la Rose', the 'Eschéz' surveys matters of love, politics, economics, music, medicine, and chess through the lens of classical and Scholastic learning. In addition to the first 16,293 (of over 30,000) verses newly edited out of the manuscripts, the editors present a complete apparatus of literary, historical and linguistic essays that place the poem in the context of the scholarly and courtly life of late 14th century Paris. The important Latin glosses of the Venice manuscript of the 'Eschéz' follow in an edition of their own, with critical notes and translation
