Troubadour poems from the South of France by William D Paden( )

12 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The chansons de geste, poems offering a narrative of heroic deeds, provided the chief means of cultural and imaginative expression in the French language for over one hundred years, and the surviving examples offer a fascinating insight into the matters and manners of their times. However, although they form a vital and varied body of verse, their literary achievements have been represented almost exclusively, and to some extent atypically, by the Chanson de Roland." "This volume offers a selection in translation of the surviving chansons. The poems translated here, 'Gormont and Isembart', 'The Song of William', 'Charlemagne's Pilgrimage', 'Raoul of Cambrai', 'Girart of Vienne' and 'The Knights of Narbonne', are taken from all three Old French epic song cycles, and - apart from their individual merits - display the complete range of themes, episodes and character types which were the life-blood of the chanson de geste genre. They vary considerably in metre and narrative length, tone and diction, but all reflect the general development in the artistic modes and social purposes of this heroic poetry during the main period of its popularity; the translation aims to preserve the dynamic, musical quality of the orally-transmitted originals. Each is accompanied by an introduction and a select bibliography."--Jacket

Medieval lyric : genres in historical context( Book )

5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An essential volume for medievalists and scholars of comparative literature, Medieval Lyric opens up a reconsideration of genre in medieval European lyric. Departing from a perspective that asks how medieval genres correspond with twentieth-century ideas of structure or with the evolution of poetry, this collection argues that the development of genres should be considered as a historical phenomenon, embedded in a given culture and responsive to social and literary change."
Two medieval Occitan toll registers from Tarascon by William D Paden( )

9 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and Provenal and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Two Medieval Toll Registers from Tarascon presents an edition, translation, and discussion of two vernacular toll registers from fourteenth and fifteenth-century Provence. These two registers are a valuable new source for the economic, linguistic, and transportation history of medieval France, offering a window onto the commercial life of Tarascon, a fortified town on the east bank of the Rhône between Avignon and Arles. William D. Paden discusses the developing fiscal policy of the counts of Provence, for whom the tolls were collected, and the practice and vocabulary of medieval toll-keeping. An afterword considers the toll registers in relation to the poetry of troubadours, arguing that the realism of the registers and the idealism of troubadour poetry overlapped in the world of medieval Tarascon."--
