Sample text

This classification was an inversion of the usual medieval definitions, and a view shared by most French poets ever since. Deschamps also affirmed music’s recreational and hygienic qualities. L’Art de dictier is composed of two main parts: a treatise on the seven liberal arts and a prescriptive poetics. The former treats all of the arts except music very briefly. Grammar is the eldest art, and facilitates the study of all the other arts. The focus on the remaining arts is on their practical applications: the use of logic yields subtle arguments, discernment of the truth, and men skilled beyond their peers.

Then, in January 1398, he received another gift, a fur coat. 61 In September 1398, Deschamps was also commissioned to purchase books for the duke’s library. 62 All these activities suggest that his relationship with the duke was fairly close. It is therefore some- what surprising that Deschamps’s political poetry written on the subject of the withdrawal of French recognition of the Avignon pope, Benedict XIII, which took place on July 27, 1398, condemned that pope (Balades 938, 948, and 951 and Dictiés 1260 and 1261), who was supported by the duke of Orléans but opposed by the dukes of Berry and Burgundy.

If he really intended it for a wider audience, he was living somewhat dangerously. Balade 1212 is another political poem, with allusions to the spread of heresy in Bohemia, the death of John Galeas Visconti on September 3, 1403, and, perhaps, to an expe dition to Italy planned by the duke of Orléans. 70 Deschamps was pleased and flattered by an epistle addressed to him on Feb ruary 10, 1404, by the poet Christine de Pizan, 71 and wrote her an appropriate reply in Balade 1242. 72 There were, perhaps, doubts about his state of health at this time: the duke of Orléans’s wife, Valentina Visconti, and her friends began praying for him when they heard rumors that he had died.
