Dr. Richard Gray, assistant professor of French, has published a book review in the current edition of Delos (v 31). Published at the University of Florida, Delos is a peer-reviewed journal focusing on translation studies. In his review, Dr. Gray critiqued William Calin’s The Lily and the Thistle: The French Tradition and the Older Literature of Scotland (2014), a monograph that examines the French impact on medieval and Renaissance Scottish literature. The Lily and the Thistle assesses diverse medieval narrative texts in several genres including the high courtly mode (analogous to the French “dits amoureux”), comic, didactic, and satirical texts, and also the Scottish romance.
