    Strike Three! I am out for this inning. After reading two MUCH larger texts (Hueffer and Fauriel) on troubadour poetry, this translated book (of a Middle Ages original) was really no more engaging than the previous two. Among all three texts the only point that has stayed with me is the very interesting life and attitude of Peire Cardenal. At the beginning I thought there would be far more complete poems -- yes, in English. Not the case. The 2 stars reflect my enjoyment, and not the translator's Strike Three! I am out for this inning.

My search will continue for an engaging book on these poets.....
