In the novels and in the songs of medieval gesta the knight appears as an assemblage of identify traits that tie the individual to the community through a constant mediation on animals. Consulting a large group of texts from the rich literary French environment of the 12th and 13th centuries, this volume explores overall ways in which animals intervenes to construct a knight's identity. Through this textual path the author shows us the symbolic complexity of the animal in the medieval codification of masculinity, nobility and violence. She also invites readers to maneuver within the relationship of intimacy and otherness that bind humans and animals in the longue durèe of European culture.
