The Song of Roland is the earliest, the most famous, and the greatest of those Old French Epics which are called Songs of Deeds. Writing around the end of the 11th century, and recalling an actual disaster in 778, the anonymous poet describes in detail the betrayal and slaughter by Saracens of the rearguard of Charlemagne`s bitter revenge. Nowhere in literature is the medieval code of chivalry more perfectly expressed than in this poem. Soft 206p
