• RONALD VINCE deposited Two Short Plays by André de la Vigne: in the group Group logo of Early Modern TheaterEarly Modern Theater on Humanities Commons 3 years, 3 months ago

    André de la Vigne (1470?-1526?) in the manuscript of his “Mystère de Saint Martin,” performed in the town of Seurre in October 1496, also included a “moralité” and a “farce.” Although they are positioned at the conclusion of the “mystère,” these short plays were undoubtedly integral to the larger performance. At the same time they are viable as stand-alone dramas. The English translations of “La Moralité de l’Aveugle et du Boiteaux” and “La Farce du Munyer” offered here are based on the texts printed in M. Edouard Fournier, “Le Théâtre Français avant la Renaissance 1450-1550” (Paris, 1872).
