Albrecht Classen in Light of Hartmann von Aueâs Gregorius and Heinrich Kaufringerâs Verse Narratives We have long recognized the enormous literary productivity of the genre of late medieval verse narratives. Wherever we look, we discover significant processes of reception, translation, adaptation, and modeling of older sources for the own purposes. Marie de France, in her lais (ca. 1180â1190) indicates that she could have drawn from Latin sources, but that she preferred utilizing ancient Breton folk tales. Geoffrey Chaucer in his Canterbury Tales (ca. 1400) drew freely from Boccaccioâs Decameron (ca. 1351), among many other sources. Those also included the rich corpus of fabliaux, twelfth- and thirteenth-Â entury Old French ribald verse narc ratives that enjoyed great popularity all over Europe far into the early modern age. In the middle of the sixteenth century, Marguerite de Navarre explicitly referred to the French translation of Boccaccioâs Decameron when she composed her own collection of prose narratives, her HeptamÃ©ron. The rich corpus of German mÃ¦ren from the thirteenth to the fifteenth centuries, subsequently followed by the vast number of SchwÃ¤nke (entertaining, but often also didactic prose narratives), was certainly influenced by Boccaccioâs work as well, and then by Poggio Braccioliniâs Facetiae
