(p.205) Conclusion
Love and Death in Medieval French and Occitan Courtly Literature

Simon Gaunt (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This concluding chapter returns to the question of ethics, using a lyric by Gulhem IX, the first troubadour, to illustrate how courtly texts instantiate an ethics grounded in renunciation. It then offers a survey of selected post-medieval texts that seem to draw on this paradigm.

Keywords:   ethics, courtly love, Guilhem IX, Marguerite de Navarre, Jean-Pierre Camus, Sade, Stendhal
