Look inside the book:
Since its characters, sometimes not without anachronism, embodied the chivalric ideals of courtesy and loyalty to ladies, hatred of paganism, and general conduct according to a prescribed but unwritten code, its appeal was made for the most part to the courtier and the aristocrat,—though it must be added that many of the robuster Charlemagne romances acquired currency with the humbler classes and were sung in the cottage of the peasant. ...By some authorities the term Metrical Tale has been applied to such compositions; though it is hardly exact or specific, since the word 'tale' is usually made synonymous with 'story' and therefore does not connote a limited subject-matter.
