Blast from the Past: The Bulletin of the IMFS is online

We are in the process of digitizing and loading copies of Le Cygne: The Bulletin of the International Marie de France Society. This publication lasted three years (1995-1997) before being reinvented as Le Cygne: The Journal of the International Marie de France Society.

They  will soon be available under the Archive tab.

A Note from the Editor of Le Cygne

Dear Members of the International Marie de France Society:

We are very pleased to be able to announce that the latest issue of our journal, Le Cygne, has been printed and is currently being distributed (along with notices of dues, where appropriate).

To avoid confusion and to create a new start for the journal, the new issue is numbered as Volume 1 (third series). It is our intention to make every effort to ensure that in future the journal appears with its former regularity.

The new editor of Le Cygne, Glyn Burgess, welcomes submissions on topics relating to the works of Marie de France or to the anonymous lays. They should be sent to him at af02@liv.ac.uk or editor@mariedefrance.org.
