"The Handbook provides an extensive apprenticeship tour into medieval Occitan studies, illustrating richly their challenges and rewards. A wonderful resource for the novice as well as the specialist, a vast mine of up-to-date information."—Michel-André Bossy, editor of Medieval Debate Poetry "This work will certainly be a must for every scholar working on the troubadours, and perhaps also for non-specialist medievalists. Its attention to the nitty-gritty of scholarship—manuscripts, editing, language, rhetoric, etc.—is what makes it so unique and helpful. It will be on the top of my bibliography when I teach the troubadours."—Stephen G. Nichols, author of Romanesque Signs

The Voice of the Trobairitz
Language: en
Pages: 274
Authors: William D. Paden
Categories: History
Type: BOOK - Published: 2016-11-11 - Publisher: University of Pennsylvania Press

During the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, southern France witnessed first a burgeoning, then a decline in the poetry of women troubadours—trobairitz. These women stood both within and outside the troubadour tradition, so their work is interesting for social and literary-historical reasons as well as for its aesthetic merit. Many of their twenty-eight surviving poems are love songs in which the trobairitz expresses her desire with a freshness that places her in startling contrast with the speechless, unresponsive lady depicted in the poetry of male troubadours. The Voice of the Trobairitz includes eleven original studies by leading scholars in America and Europe. Approaching the trobairitz from varying perspectives, the authors ask such questions as: which poems are properly attributed to the women? Which poetic forms and techniques did they employ? Is there a distinctive feminine rhetoric in the poems, and do they attempt to mold the role offered them by the troubadours or do they subside into passivity? Paden's introduction describes the historical context of the trobairitz, and he includes a checklist of the poems, a meticulous bibliography, and an index. The Voice of the Trobairitz will be a valuable resource for all medieval scholars and students and for those interested in ' women's history.
