Altmann and R. , An Anthology of Medieval Love Debate Poetry (Gainesville: 2006). Alain Chartier’s Singularity, or How Sources Make an Author 39 Livre des quatre dames (lqd) calls upon both Machaut and, reaching further back, Guillaume de Lorris’ Roman de la Rose, but to very different effect. In the first half of the 13th century, Guillaume de Lorris had offered the scene of a beautiful walk to an enclosed orchard garden as the beginning of a dream the narrator once had; before embarking on the dream tale, the narrator affirmed the veracity of his vision, and cited scholarly authority to make his truth claims.

On the first morning of May, a time traditionally associated with love, the poet walks alone in the country outside Paris. Despite all the natural beauty which surrounds him, he cannot shake off his mood of melancholy. His lady is unaware of his love, for he is too timid to declare himself to her; his diffidence is the greater because of her noble qualities. A series of precise temporal references woven into the narrative suggest that the poet’s love is not imaginary. We learn that only two months have elapsed since he lost his heart, and so it is too soon to lose hope.
