In the Middle Ages, many men and women wrote and sang songs about the joys and trials of being in love. Two great examples representing male and female attitudes towards the objects of their affection are Bernart de Ventadorn’s Can vei la lauzeta mover (When I See the Lark) Linkand Beatriz de Dia’s A chantar m’er (I Am Obliged to Sing) Link . For this exercise, write a blog explaining to your readers how to understand the poems in general and in comparison to each other. What are similarities and differences from the masculine and feminine points of view. Finally, explain to your readers how these approaches still exist today. Choose one song that you know from your world that shares similarity to one of the medieval examples and explain.
