A Reynard for Our Time
(Reinier Salverda) The Low Countries - 2018, № 26, pp. 298-299
Animal tales are among the most ancient, widespread and enduringly popular forms of storytelling. In Low Countries literature, one animal tale stands out in particular: Reynard the Fox, a brilliant contribution to the genre. Ranking fourth in the authoritative Canon of Dutch Literature of 2002, Reynard’s satire continues to flourish, and so does Reynard scholarship. In 2017, an online series of Reynard talks was included in the open access course on Dutch medieval literature at Antwerp University. Tiecelyn, the lively e-platform of the Belgian Reynaert Society, provides Reynard lovers with news of scholarly and other activities. And the International Reynard Society offers biennial scholarly conferences, while its multilingual yearbook Reinardus is published by John Benjamins in Amsterdam.
