Courtly Love and Guillaume de Machaut
Elizabeth G Melillo, PhD has written an interesting essay about the tradition
of courtly love, as expressed in the poetry and music of Guillaume de Machaut.
The essay is all on-line at www.gloriana.nu/courtly.html . Don't miss the drop-down
box at the bottom of the page which allows you to explore other areas of
'Gloriana's Court' (each page with suitably authentic MIDI music). Some
headings will give you a flavour of the site: The Bestiary, Christian
Mysticism, Unicorn Volksleid and Internet Design Services (??!).
