Abstract

This essay explores the ways in which a single tongue can be said to be, in Brunetto Latini’s phrase, at once “delectable” and “common.” It is argued that such titles are suited to medieval texts that trouble the limits of individual languages and, further, that they pertain in exemplary fashion to a restricted but complex corpus of medieval poems that are written in several languages at once.
