On Medieval Metrics

On this page of the website there will be papers and pieces dealing with the ways that matters of prosody, measure and rhythm in medieval poetry have been dealt with.

But the first piece that you will find here was part of a three hour lecture-performance that I gave at The University of Leiden in Februry 2014.
