A wide ranging collection of troubadour poetry translated from Occitan Lark in the Morning benefits from a solid introduction and brief prefaces for each poet the original Occitan verse facing each page of translation a very helpful but brief set of endnotes and a bibliography for further reading The real joy is in seeing nearly a millennium ago all the recognizable elements of pop music today combative plaintive obsessively amorous funny and clever often deeply sexist experimental and much else you could find on the Top 100 Once the shock of recognizing the present so clearly in the past is over the poems can be enjoyed on their own and with a wide selection of poets to choose from it's easy to appreciate the ones that stand out by comparing them to the ones that just don't do it for youThe downside of the collection is the range of translations the editor Robert Kehew made a selection of Ezra Pound and W D Snodgrass translations and filled in the remainder with his own Kehew's translations skew closer to Snodgrass's which leaves Ezra Pound's creative translations to stand out I don't need uniformity in a collection of translations but it everything I learned on how to read the Troubadour's poems in Kehew and Snodgrass's translations went out the window as soon as Pound shows upI'm not a poet or god help us a poetry critic Marcabru's an old dirty bastard Bernart de Ventadorn's Now the Birds Are Leaving is achingly mournful and filled with longing and Guillem de Peiteus tells a tale of two thirsty ladies and a pissed off cat that goes places It's good shit and if you like to explore the present while getting away from the contemporary the verses of the Troubadours are pretty wild
