How to order?
The book intends to provide guidance and general survey for the history of medieval Latin lyrics and minor poetic forms (love poems, personal, political, and, socially oriented poetry, invective, satire, parody, lament, etc.). A complete, systematical history of these poetic forms could not be undertaken, but the material gathered here surpasses any other scholarly undertaking in the field. The work, organized on historical basis, intends to be a guide and to serve practical purposes of the research. The material comprises four different categories of informations: brief comments related to the periods, authors and texts; then extensive data concerning some 5000 individual poems; quotations and extracts from many of the texts and finally, bibliographical material in the footnotes. Each category is clearly marked with typographical features. The work is completed with a comprehensive Index system.
