Description

Thibaut was the heir not only to the county of Champagne and kingdom of Navarre, but also to the poetic traditions that had come to him through his grandmother Marie and great-grandmother Eleanor, patrons of letters and the arts, and through his great-great-great-grandfather, Guilhem IX, the first named troubadour whose compositions have survived. Like his troubadour ancestor, Thibaut was a lyricist, leaving behind a sophisticated body of erotic and religious songs in his own language, Champenois French. The Société Guilhem IX celebrates the magisterial new edition of Thibaut’s lyric by Christopher Callahan, Marie-Geneviève Grossel, and Daniel O’Sullivan (Éditions Honoré Champion, 2018) with a roundtable exploring links between Thibaut and the troubadours.
