Abstract

In connection with the texts that bear the title of " chanson ", in particular in medieval verse chronicles, the author has attempted to identify, from a philological point of view, the marks that show they were sung. Their significance is also evaluated. Before further study is attempted, a list of explicit allusions to oral practice needs to be drawn up. The role played by the medieval epic song appears more significant when considered in the context of the general background of the European epic. Such is the case with lyric poetry. The " grand chant courtois " of the " troubadours occitans " might derive from a reaction to a traditional untutored poetry.
