Abstract

Reviews 283 soon, grinding his teeth incessantly, he gulps down hunks of six large fish, and devouring a huge pike at dinner, he grows plump and fat within two years, like pigs deprived of food.' Such satire makes one think that, when he praises Alberic for not allowing pagan authors to be studied in the schools at Reims (no. 18, p. 203), he is demonstrating a gift for eulogy that perhaps was never meant to be taken seriously. McDonough is to be congratulated for bringing these lively poems to a wider audience. His annotations are informative and his Introduction helpful for presenting the undoubted literary interest of these poems. Constant J.
