Summary
  • The Death of the Troubadour offers new insight into the emergence of the autonomous "self," which has often been taken as a marker of the end of the Middle Ages and the beginning of the Renaissance. Gregory B. Stone argues that the anonymity of late medieval texts, and specifically of the troubadour song, is not a sign of naivete but rather that of a mature, deliberate resistance to the advent of individualism
  • Moreover, this anonymity reveals that medieval lyric, with a melancholy knowledge of the inevitable triumph of the specific over the general, of private over public subjectivity, lurks at the heart of narrative, ready to wield a retributive violence
  • Through a series of detailed readings of a colorful selection of texts which mourn the "death of the troubadour"--Including old French lais, old Provencal vidas and razos, Italian novelle, and Chaucer's Book of the Duchess - Stone locates various strategies of resistance to bourgeois individualism and to the emerging notion that literature is the realistic mimesis of historical fact
  • He offers brief narratives recounting the biographies of specifically identified troubadour poets and the events that led these individuals to compose specific verses for individual ladies. This narrative birth of the individual is, indeed, the death of the troubadour
  • . The Death of the Troubadour will be of interest to students and scholars of medieval and Renaissance literature, and of literary theory
