Miscellaneous - Dangiers Li Vilains

Galpin, Stanley L.

French courtly poetry of the middle ages is not lacking in unpleasant portraits of the vilains. It suffices to have shown that Guillaume de Lorris in his portrait of Dangiers has drawn upon the stock features of current devil description in order to make more repellant than ever li vilains, always an object of interested scorn and derision to the courtly poet.
