Amis, produced in the East Midlands in the late thirteenth century was well known throughout Europe, but according to Edward Foster, the Middle English version is especially lively, entertaining, and perplexing.Robert of Cisyle was also a common and popular story. Like the medieval tragedies recounted in Chaucers The Monks Tale, it recounts the story of the fall of a great man and his ultimate triumph once he has been thoroughly humiliated.The stress in Sir Amadace is on material things: Amadaces original plight is material, his succor of the unburied knight is material, the white knights assistance to him is material, his redemption is material .

. ., and his ultimate happiness is material. - from the Introduction
