Joseph Bedier (1864-1938) was a distinguished French medievalist, literary historian, and poet. His authoritative reconstruction of The Romance of Tristan and Iseult from the ancient French poems and a variety of other early sources was originally published to considerable acclaim in France in 1900. He also produced a critical edition of the Chanson de Roland, among other volumes of literary history. Hilaire Belloc was born near Paris in 1870 and raised in England, though he remained a French citizen until 1902. He attended Balliol College in Oxford. His most famous works were his humorous morality poems and cautionary tales for children. After the loss of his son in World War I he wrote a series of historical biographies and religious texts, reaffirming his Roman Catholic faith. He died in 1953.
