  • Title: Un Chat peut en cacher un autre: autour d'une interpretation "sans difficulté" de Henri Rey-Flaud et de Jean-Charles Huchet [The author briefly reflects on psychoanalytic interpretations from Rey-Flaud and Huchet concerning courtly love and more particularly Guillaume IX's "Chanson V: Farai un vers, pos mi sonelh." Rey-Flaud and Huchet see the large menacing cat in the poem as a symbol of the female sex and the cause of the poet's fear of castration. Uhl urges caution with this psychoanalytic approach and suggests other influences and ways of thinking that can be taken into account. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
