The Opening Diablerie of the Unpublished Mystere de Saint Martin, by Andrieu de la Vigne

Carnahan, David H.

The fact that great pleasure experienced by of the writers of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries in evolving strange poetic combinations, appears clearly in even a cursory reading of the lyric collections of the period. Complicated and bizarre as some of these collections seem, none have surpassed in intricacy the peculiar inventions of Andrieu de la Vigne. The words of M. Anatole de Montaiglon, in his introduction to the poet's Complaintes et Epitaphes du Roy de la Basoche, may be well quoted in this connection.
