about

Among the troubadour poets, those writers of courtly love poetry who flourished in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries in the south of France, Giraut de Borneil was one of the most important and influential. This is the first serious consideration of his work. In a scrupulously researched edition, Sharman covers Giraut's entire output. She replaces Giraut in the context of troubadour poetry while highlighting his particular originality; involving women as equal participants in love.
