The Male Gaze as a Troubadour Phenomenon

My project was inspired by the gender dynamic present in troubadour poems and songs. While the cantos are often romantic and tell tales of far-away love that burns ardently or forbidden love that seems so close, yet so far, it is prevalent that the love between men and women is a main theme of troubadour songs. With that in mind, examining the songs of both the Comtessa the Dia and of (male) troubadours allowed for different perspectives on the songs with fin-amor themes.
