This volume gathers eight contributions regarding the French medieval language and literature. They are a selection of papers presented during a colloquium organized in honor of Prof. Emeritus Willy Van Hoecke, whose passion for French diachronic linguistics and medieval literature has driven him to develop some techniques for critical text edition, applied to the oeuvre of Baudouin de Condé, techniques which he also used for the edition of Jean d’Antioche’s Rectorique de Marc Tulles Cyceron. The papers collected here regard a variety of subjects: historical phraseology, medieval authors, some specific literary characters, addressees of medieval literature, certain types of literary texts, and the relationship between Middle Dutch and Old French literature. With contributions by: Herman Braet, Claude Buridant, Brigitte L. Callay, Geert H.M. Claassens, Yasmina Foehr-Janssens, Dulce Maria Gonzalez Doreste, Cinzia Pignatelli, Remco Sleiderink, Colette Van Coolput-Storms.

This collection of eight essays addressing various aspects of medieval French language and literature was assembled in honor of Willy Van Hoecke, a distinguished Belgian philologist, who retired in 2004 after a remarkably productive 40-year career. Although the essays cover a wide range of literary and linguistic topics, they are primarily focused on the twelfth and thirteenth centuries.
All eight essays are admirably researched and very well documented. This is not a book intended for a general audience, and even readers who are reasonably well acquainted with medieval French literature will not be familiar with most of the texts examined here, many of which are fairly obscure. Academic libraries with extensive holdings in the medieval area, however, may wish to consider purchasing this work.

This collection dedicated to Willy Van Hoecke unites a number of interesting if somewhat uneven essays. Given the wide variety of topics treated, the volume will be of interest to scholars in a range of disciplines.
