 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Jean Froissart
From Italy Froissart returned to Valenciennes where he learned of the death of Queen Philippa in 1369.
The first, written between 1369 and 1379 brings the narrative to 1378 (the beginning is borrowed from the "Chronicle" of Jean le Bel, a canon of Liege).
The "Chronicles" were much copied; one of the most beautiful manuscripts of Froissart is at Breslau, copied in 1469 by Aubert de Hesdin, and admirably illustrated with miniatures (S. Reinach, Gazette des Beaux Arts, May, 1905).

 [No title]
It is, however, Froissart the poet I intend to talk about, not a side of this servant of the rich and famous that most historians or indeed literary scholars have much addressed--at least since Huizinga’s damning and unfortunately quite influential comments about his verse.
Froissart’s poetry is not merely derivative, a term of opprobrium that smacks of modern, postromantic values, particularly the view that the artist should be someone who creates from what he thinks and feels and not from his culture’s ideas or forms.
Like our honored guest, Jean Froissart has a wickedly sly sense of humor, the virtue of the polished mannerist who is thereby enabled to poke subtle fun at the very themes and structures of the literary tradition he continues yet simultaneously offers up for sophisticated critical review.

Froissart also wrote a long, rhymed Arthurian romance entitled Meliador, and left behind him two extensive manuscripts incorporating other poetic works; all of the latter are now housed at the Bibliothèque Nationale.
The chronicler's first attempt at history writing was in verse, but Froissart soon abandoned the medium in favour of prose, almost certainly at the behest of Jean le Bel, canon of Liège and author of a prose chronicle relating the early stages of the Hundred Years' War.
Froissart drafted it (in two extant redactions) circa 1389-90 upon returning from his 1388 tour of the south-west of France.

 15ch14
Jean Froissart, though known chiefly as a chronicler, was a master of the first-person narrative dit and of its autobiographical tone.
Moreover, since all of these figures are also poets, this fragmentation of the protagonist allows Froissart to include in the poem a simultaneous discourse on the role and purpose of the poet and of poetry itself.
Youth, poetry, love, springtime, warmth, and the fire or burning of passion are all linked to each other and opposed to their opposites: old age, the cessation of writing, the state of not being in love or having forgotten love, winter, cold, and the absence therefore of the burning of passion.
