Abstract

This article offers analyses of three songs by Blondel de Nesle: Onques maiz nus hom ne chanta, En tous tens que vente bise and A l'entree de la saison. It proposes that close attention to individual songs is a necessary preliminary to amassing data on overall norms that will reciprocally affect the way those individual songs are interpreted editorially and thus understood analytically. This hermeneutic circle between analysis and editing is unavoidable for trouvère song, given the relationship between the literate and oral/performative traditions implied in the degree of variation between sources. Nonetheless, certain analytical interpretations can be advanced in the first stage of considering individual songs.
