Description

The "Cort d'Amor" is a late 12th-century allegorical romance in Occitan which fuses a variety of lyric and narrative genres together and which predates the "Roman de la Rose" by some 50 years. In this edition, Matthew Bardell highlights the work's intertextuality with Andreas Capellanus' "De Amore" to show how the Occitan work presents a dialogue between gendered approaches to love whilst parodying the exegetical tradition. It juxtaposes lyric passages with some of the standard Ovidian teaching on love and undermines the reader's attempts to distinguish between the two. This volume has a facing English translation and aims to make an important contribution to the study of medieval allegory and courtly love in general, as well as to the dissemination of Ovid in the Middle Ages and the narrative transformations of Old French and Occitan lyric.
