Scope and content

This series contains only a partial documentation of Professor Flinn’s literary output. The five book reviews listed in his curriculum vitae [September, 1982, B2009-0038/001(01)] are present, but only a small selection of his translations are, including some legal documents, interpretations of phrases, and pamphlets for the Addiction Research Foundation, and none of his work for the Dictionary of Canadian Biography. The files on his book Le Roman de Renart dans la littérature française et dans les literatures étrangères au Moyen Age, contain correspondence, notes for a few chapters, reviews, and a copy of his book to facilitate understanding the files in Series 4. The other principal writings documented are his articles on Reynard the Fox and Gauthier d’Arras for the Dictionary of the Middle Ages and his 1983 article, ‘Of cabbages and wine: popular belief or scientific tradition in the Roman de Renart’, recorded in his 1989 update of his publications, B2009-0038/001(01).
