Originally published in 1897, "The Flourishing Of Romance And The Rise Of Allegory" is a fascinating treatise by English writer George Saintsbury on Romance. Contents include: "The function of Latin", "Chansons De Geste", "The Matter of Britain", "Antiquity in Romance", "The making of English and the settlement of European Prosody", "Middle High German Poetry", "The 'Fox'", "The 'Rose'", etc. George Edward Bateman Saintsbury (23 October 1845 - 28 January 1933) was an English writer, scholar, literary historian, critic and wine connoisseur. Other notable works by this author include: "A Primer of French Literature" (1880), "Short History of French Literature" (1882), and "History of Elizabethan Literature" (1887). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
