Yde Et Olive

Jesse Russell

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Yde et Olive is an Old French chanson de geste. It is a sequel to Huon de Bordeaux and follows the Chanson d'Esclarmonde, the story of Huon's wife, and Clarisse et Florent, the story of Yde's parents, in the cycle. It is perhaps the earliest Old French adaptation of the myth of Iphis. This myth is found in Ovid's Metamorphoses, but other ancient Indian sources and no sources at all have also been suggested for the chanson.Yde et Olive is a relatively unstudied chanson, with only one critically edited published text, Max Schweigel's from 1889, and one unpublished edition from a 1977 dissertation by Barbara Anne Brewka at Vanderbilt University.
