Excerpt from Aucassin Et Nicolete The object of the French poet was plainly to vary the monotony of a mere prose narrative. Not only so, but he has cleverly turned to account the special advantage of each style, prose and verse, and has thus given a distinct artistic value to the alternation. Thus, in the three sections of the work in which songs are introduced - the warder's song (i the song of the herdoboys the song of Nicolete, disguised as a minstrel (39) - the effect is made much more realistic by their being actually sung. However, the chance of introducing a real song could occur but seldom; but the utterances of grief or passionate feeling have Often something of the nature of song in them, and we find introduced in the verse, as quasi-songs, various soliloquies or single speeches of the hero and heroine, either lamentations, or affirmations of love and constancy. No less than thirteen out of the twenty-one verse sections contain some utterance of this kind, which in many of them occupies almost the whole of the section. We may note, however, that it is the prose sections which tell almost the whole of the actual story; and although the verse sections are not merely interludes, there are only some half-dozen of them whose omission would interfere with its development.
