Raimbaut d’Aurenga «poeta di testa»
The paper shows how Raimbaut d’Aurenga innovated the vocabulary of troubadour love poetry by using some key-words (all linked to the semantic field of human ‘head’ and ‘brain’) to make new metaphor to represent interiority. The study focuses on the connections between these words and the technical terminology of medicine, which could have influenced the poet. Studies on the fortune of Raimbaut’s images and metaphors in the works of later troubadours demonstrate the originality of his lexical choices.
