    An introduction to the women poets of 12th-century Provence and a collection of their poems.

    This is the first twentieth-century study of the women troubadours who flourished in Southern France between 1150 and 1250—the great period of troubadour poetry. The book is comprised of a full-length essay on women in the Middle Ages, twenty-three poems by the women troubadours themselves in the original Provencal with translations on facing pages, a capsule biography of each poet, notes, and reading list.
