Overview

Rhyme in Gace Brule's Lyric: Formal and Semantic Interplay by Susan E. Becam

Bécam's study of rhyme repetition corroborates evidence that courtly love songs share common features, but also demonstrates that Gace Brulé re-creates and thus redefines these features throughout his corpus. This role of rhyme in Gace Brulé's lyrics establishes the far-reaching significance of a poetic device designed to shape the sound and meaning of verse. This study offers a fresh look at the lyrics of the renowned twelfth-century trouvère poet. Thanks to this book's constant interaction of statistical evidence with rhetorical analysis, new dimensions are added to the dialogue.
