This chapter treats narcissism and selfhood, through the lens of melancholy, in René d’Anjou’s Book of the Love-Smitten . Labbie, Erin Felicia.

This chapter treats narcissism and selfhood, through the lens of melancholy, in René d’Anjou’s Book of the Love-Smitten Heart(c. 1457). Wounded by Love’s arrow upon seeing his beloved, René remains melancholic, incapable of satisfying his longing. Melancholy works to keep this wound open, creating a space where René can fixate upon his loss as fulfillment seems attainable.

Written in 1457, Le livre du Coeur d'amour épris (The book of the love-smitten heart) is an allegorical romance by King René of Anjou (1409−80). This amorous journey combines the knight’s studies and his personal memories. The tone is that of a disenchanted man at the end of his life, for whom courtly love and desire both amount to obstacles and suffering.

The book also traces the literature of the 13th and 14th centuries, including the beginnings of medieval drama and the heroic Dietrich-epics. A section on mysticism concludes with a discussion of Johannes von Saaz. The authors include a high proportion of works in English in the secondary literature, and have provided English translations for all German quotations.

Available only in Middle French and German translation until now, this volume constitutes the first full-length , French-English bilingual edition of Rene of Anjou's Livre du cuers d'amours espris, including all sixteen of the celebrated color plates, a critical introduction, notes on the translation, and a comprehensive bibliography.<br> The book tells the tale of desire and adventure as Heart -- part of Rene torn from his body by Love -- travels a complex allegorical landscape in quest of the lady Mercy, who is being held prisoner by a band of miscreants led by Refusal and Shame. Rene begs the reader to help him determine which of three entities is responsible for his torment: Fortune led him to the lady whom he loves; once he arrived, Love, in the guise of his lady's gaze, struck his heart; and Destiny insists that he reflect upon her alone. In addition to being a compelling courtly page-turner, The Book of the Love-Smitten Heart represents the rare instance in which a medieval love story is told simultaneously in three frameworks: autobiographical letter, dream vision, and quest romance. This structure makes clear the multiple logics within which the author's psychology is reflected in the story, and illustrates how the symbol of the heart, as it travels through these shifting frameworks, dramatizes vital relations linking self, desire, and writing.
