This story concerns the capture by Alexander's forces of the city of Milide. As an example of courtly literature, Le Parfait combines, curiously, aristocratic refinement with descriptions of violent and bloody battles. The critical apparatus includes an introduction, linguistic study, variants, notes, glossary, and index of proper names.
