    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    This new translation of Ysengrimus (written by a clergyman around the mid-12th century) includes a literary-historical introduction as well as notes that explain the text’s historical allusions. This strident satire of contemporary monasticism and the state of the Church is a precursor and point of departure for vernacular animal epics from the Roman de Renart via Goethe’s Reineke Fuchs all the way to the comic Fix und Foxi.
