  Roman de la Rose - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Roman de la Rose is a late medieval French poem styled as an allegorical dream vision.
This part of the story is set in a walled garden (a locus amoenus, one of the traditional topoi of epic and chivalric literature), the interior of which represents romance, the exterior everyday life.
Part of the story was translated into Middle English as The Romaunt of the Rose, which had a great influence on English literature.

 The Romaunt of the Rose - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Romaunt of the Rose is a partial translation into Middle English of the French allegory, the Roman de la Rose.
The second seems to be written in northern English and is rejected and the third part is closer to Chaucer's style but is also usually rejected.
The story begins with an allegorical dream, in which the narrator receives advice from the god of love on gaining his lady's favour, her love being symbolized by a rose.

 The Romaunt of the Rose - Geoffrey Chaucer - University of Oklahoma Press
Charles Dahlberg's edition of the Romaunt provides a full summary of scholarship on the question of authorship as well as other important topics, including a useful survey of the influence of the French poem on Chaucer.
The Romaunt of the Rose translates in abridged form a long dream vision, part elegant romance, part rollicking satire, written in France during the thirteenth century.
From the sixteenth century to the mid-nineteenth, scholars assumed that the Romaunt comprised large fragments of that translation.

It has, however, been used largely in the discussion of the last important poem assigned to Chaucer, The Romaunt of the Rose, and is, perhaps, here of most importance.
It is not denied by anybody that Chaucer did translate this, the most famous and popular poem in all European literature for nearly three centuries.
We now come, without further difficulty or doubt, to those parts of the works about which there is little or no contention; only prefixing a notice of the English Romaunt of the Rose with full reference to the cautions given previously.

 Guillaume de Lorris' Romance of the Rose and medieval garden design
Even earlier than Guillaume de Lorris the scene of several Latin and French love tales was laid in a garden, but it was his Romaunt of the Rose that fixed and incorporated the traditional descriptions, in which successors scarcely ever made any alteration even in details.
Artists could not attempt much from the ordinary general descriptions given in the books that they were to adorn with miniatures, and they could not seek refuge in the poets’ subterfuge, that the beauty of their subject was beyond all words; so they took actually existing gardens as models.
We owe our clearest conceptions of the gardens of this period to the miniatures painted for the Romaunt of the Rose and its imitations, and also for the prayer-books, which in the North maintained the traditional forms of the Middle Ages right through the whole of the fifteenth century.

 GUILLAUME DE LORRIS
The Middle English translation, The Romaunt of the Rose, exists in three fragments: Fragments A and B (lines 1-5810) correspond to RR 1-5154; Fragment C (lines 5811-7696) corresponds to RR 10670-12360.
The Middle English Romaunt does not include the Discourse of Reason, RR 4229-7229; the Friend's Advice, RR 7281-10000; and the Old Woman's Sermon, RR 2740-14546, any of which may be called "heresy" against the God of Love's Law.

If The book of the Duchess (Blanche of Lancaster, who died in 1369) be really of the earliest—and The Complaint unto Pity is not usually assigned to an earlier date—Chaucer was a singularly late-writing poet.
But we may, of course, suppose that his earlier work is lost, or that he devoted the whole of his leisure (it must be remembered that he was “in the service” in various ways) to the Rose.
On the other hand, the putting of The Complaint of Mars as late as 1379 depends solely upon a note by Shirley, connecting it with a court scandal between Isabel of Castille, duchess of York, and John Holland, duke of Exeter—for which there is no intrinsic evidence whatsoever.

This tapestry, Love and the Pilgrim, was made in 1909 by Morris and Co and although Edward Burne-Jones died in 1898, its design and that of its pair, The Pilgrim in the Garden, was taken directly from his oil paintings.
The subject was inspired by The Romaunt of the Rose, a poem by Geoffrey Chaucer.

Throughout this tapestry, Larson carefully weaves the Rose of Christ in styles ranging from Dante and Spenser to Herrick and Milton; he captures their styles brilliantly, yet adds his own touches, shaped by profound faith in the Word and the Word made flesh.
These ten poems, brilliantly conceived and executed, are but the more recent publications in Larson's ever-growing corpus of fine poems which assure his position as the premier Mormon poet."
