Item description for The Making of Poetry: Late-medieval French Poetic Anthologies (Texts and Transitions) (Texts and Transitions) by J. Taylor...

In this ground-breaking book, Jane H. M. Taylor explores late-medieval lyric anthologies. Taking a cue from the French sociologist Pierre Bourdieu, she sets poetic creation in the context of an understanding of the structures of court society, and sketches the range of social, intellectual and aesthetic positions available to the poet and the patron. Her primary focus is on a series of manuscripts which, she argues, reveal much about the socioliterary dynamics of particular poems, and about the way in which they are vessels for the participation by individuals in a common culture of literary exchange: Charles d'Orleans's personal manuscript, BNF francais 25458, in which, she argues, the poets leave implicit or explicit traces of their social interactions; his duchess Marie's album, Carpentras 375, which is interestingly different from the Duke's; BNF fr. 9223 and n.a.f. 15771, 'coterie' manuscripts which allow us to see how social milieu determines shared literary forms and conventions; Marguerite d'Autriche's Album poetique, Brussels BR 10572, an anthology which is a cultural commodity allowing a princely court to recognise stylistic expertise and control of form. She finishes by examining the first great French poetic anthology, Antoine Verard's Jardin de Plaisance (1501), which seeks to recreate, knowingly and imaginatively, via rubrics, illustrations, and choice of texts, the elite sociability for which the other anthologies are evidence.
