Apparaît comme un greffon féminin enté sur la virilité et revigorant la part féminine qui est naturellement dans l’homme, mais qu’il a si longtemps refoulée (86) (This love . . ) Nelli sees the best examples in the modern era of the persistence of troubadour eroticism in surrealist poetry. He maintains: Tous les surréalistes ont affirmé que l’amour n’avait point d’autre objet que lui-même (comme la poésie); que cet objet n’était ni sur la terre ni dans les cieux, ni même tout à fait dans l’être aimé, mais dans la passion comme “vouloir aimer,” comme source de l’imaginaire, comme l’explosion de la nature dans le monde transparent des images auxquelles la matière donne poids, mais aussi notre esprit.

According to Stephen Nichols, specialist in Provençal lyric poetry, “In this new form the human voice played a crucial role. For the first time the singer was not simply lending his voice to perform a narrative, but took on a poetic identity: the speaking subject was also the subject of the poem” (Hollier 31). Nichols succinctly documents how the splitting of a writer’s subjectivity into both subject and object of writing came about in literary history. When this split occurs, the subject who writes is assumed to be masculine, and that part of the writer’s subjectivity that is transformed into the object of the writer’s desire, the part of the self that expresses the exalted pleasure of creativity, is—based on textual signs—assumed to be feminine.

According to René Nelli, the process was far more complicated. 3 While Nelli’s recognition that Fin’Amors is not clearly heterosexual represents a step towards a reconsideration of the gender composition of the romantic couple of Western culture, his redescription of the couple as “homosexualized” is an oversimplification of troubadour poetics and its role in defining heterosexual eroticism. 5 What is indisputable, however, is that the movement began in the South and that the first reference to Fin’Amors occurred in Occitania, where troubadours were at the center of a culture that developed around love poetry.
