Aucassin and Nicolette
"Aucassin and Nicolette" is a lighthearted medieval French ballad (chantefable). It recounts the adventures of two star-crossed lovers who must go to great lengths for the chance to be together, although they don't have to quite go as far as killing themselves with a dagger or poison - or do they?
Often displaying tongue-in-cheek humor, amusing role reversals, and unusual situations, this tale is guaranteed to delight even modern reader.
