Author(s): Secor, John R.
Title : Le porpenser: Forethought Before Speech or Action in "Tisbe" and "Nicolette" [The female protagonists in these two French courtly poems present the woman's role as one of premeditated action and careful planning. The male's role, conversely, is brutish; the male protagonists only act in response to sudden emotion and are ridiculed as a result. In contrast to conventional depictions of lovers who meditate upon their lovers and daydream randomly, these women display active goal-oriented thinking. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
