Title in English: Old Bohemian and German love poetry of the high middle ages
Old Bohemian love poetry stands at the end of a long tradition of medieval love lyric poetry in national languages. This tradition has shaped the overall European literature: it continues from Petrarch until now – although reformed and altered several times. The authors of the book present all texts of old Bohemian love poetry known so far from the beginnings of the genre in the 13th and 14th century to the 15th century. Love poems are provided with commentary; and unlike the previous editions the reader will find a comparison of old Czech lyrical texts with texts from German-speaking countries from the same period. Let’s emphasize that the old Bohemian love poetry combines poetic patterns of literatures from various periods; its testimony and value is thus extremely important.
