Because of the importance (IMO) of the "Courtly Love" tradition
in the development of our notions of chivalry and right conduct,
I thought I'd share this with you. It was originally posted on
the MEDTEXTL list, a usually serious scholarly discussion on
medieval texts and subjects relating to them. It appears here
with the kind permission of the compiler, Stephen R. Reimer.
If you have discovered other useful works, I'd appreciate hearing
of them, as I would like to accumulate a set of biblios on
various topics, for future reference.
I am reproducing Dr. Reimer's entire letter, prefixed by right
parens, so the mailer software doesn't get confused by the header.
Here it begins:
