The Death of the Troubadour

The Late Medieval Resistance to the Renaissance

Through a series of detailed readings of a colorful selection of texts which mourn the "death of a troubadour"--including old French lais, old Provencal vidas and razos, Italian novelle, and Chaucer's Book of Duchess--Stone locates various strategies of resistance to bourgeois individualism and to the emerging notion that literature is the realistic mimesis of historical fact.
