Most of medieval literature is poetry. A popular genre was that of romances, generally translated from the French models. They’re stories in verse about chivalry, love and magic (like fairies, giants, dragons and wizards). These stories came from three main sources: France (about Charlemagne), Rome (about classical stories, such as the conquest of Troy) and Britain (the story of King Arthur).
From medieval poetry derived the popular ballads. They were wrote anonymously and could be accompanied or not with dance. They were transmitted orally and written between the 13th and 14th centuries. They were collected only in the 1765 in the “Reliques of Ancient English Poetry” by Bishop Thomas Percy. The narrative technique of ballads is similar to that of montage in film. It is not a continuous sequence of events, but a series of rapid flashes. Popular ballads are composed both of dialogue and narration. The stanzas of a ballad are usually composed of four lines and the rhyme scheme is: ABCB. But sometimes they’re couplets(two lines) with an alternating refrain(repetition). The language of the ballads is simple and it has a lot of formulaic phrases. Ballads are peopled with magic animals which could speak, fairies, witches and ghosts.
Ballads are classified to the following themes:
– Ballads of magic: about magic (fairies, ghosts ecc…);
– Border Ballads: about the rivalry between the English and the Scottish;
– Ballads of love and domestic tragedy;
– Ballads of outlaws: about the cycle of Robin Hood.

Today I met a Troubadours.
Troubadours and trouvères are names that indicate medieval poets and musicians.
I’ve been listening to him and I’ve found something, through his poetry song, a bit strange.
The loving feeling of the knight towards his lady was concretely defined as a “service” of feudal nature, a relationship between “lady” and “vassal”, which through a series of levels sublimated the luxurious eros in the mystical vision of the woman. The highest point, that is, the loving acme, was generally represented by a chaste kiss. The perfect lover, in intimacy as in society, was merely a servant of his lady; his duty was to please her, to be faithful, to decant her virtues. In return, the lady, her lady, had to let her know her behavior.
Said this, it does not matter that my brother obstinately wants to become a knight, he does not have a vassal character for sure, I think he will remain single for a long time yet….

Good morning.
My brother did not notice anything. At his return I was already under the blankets in our tent. He is just astonished that in the morning, I did not wake up before him, believing that the long journey had exhausted me (instead I danced all night).Sorry to have left me alone (alone….*winks*) all night, he brought me a gift, a beautiful yellow dress. While I dressed, he went to get some fresh milk, I wanted to see him while milking the cow * giggles * but he was nice, he promised that he would stay all the morning with me. We explored the mountains outside of the travelers’ camp. He has tried fate with the blade race and after risked life a couple of time he decided to bring his sister to play more peaceful games. We found a little square with board games…it was a wonderful morning, my brother is not the usual grunt. In the afternoon he will have other tournaments, and he’ll leave the afternoon free for my shopping even though he has commissioned me to find lambs for the farm. I will try not to disappoint him so maybe I will can buy other clothes!

The Butterfly

The Butterfly upon the Sky,
That doesn’t know its Name
And hasn’t any tax to pay
And hasn’t any Home
Is just as high as you and I,
And higher, I believe,
So soar away and never sigh
And that’s the way to grieve

by Emily Dickinson

I’m locked in my tent. My brother went to the tavern leaving me alone with my first purchases. I hear the music far away. Surely in the square are still playing live. I’ll try some dress and then sneak out, if I’m wise i will come back before he does.

I never left my castle, my dad is too protective.
I know of a fair in a country not very close, I want to go there, it is a supporting Relay For Life with items that will be sold for 100% profit to Relay.
After many prayers, my father allowed me to travel with my brother, who will escort me to the fair.
We’re on horseback, my brother is grumpy and I know he’ll punish me for this travel.
We arrived. We just walked in from the outside walls.
I notice that my brother stops at the entrance, I look at him, his face seems to light up while he reads a sign “Tournaments, jousting, archery and sword melee”.
Maybe no punishment in sight.
We resume walking and my brother now looks happy. I wanted to do some shopping but I start to fear that I’ll spend the day watching him get cool with the sword.
Fortunately, I immediately find the gacha garden. It’s immense. I will lose it easily.
My brother has already run away.
So I look around alone. The game of blades, the arena duels, magnificent views and a tavern inside a cave.
My brother finally reaches me and I can go to the center of the village. Musicians are playing in the village’s main square, around it the market.
My brother has joined some tournaments.
We will stay here a few days,and we find a tent for the night at the Traveler’s camp.
This adventure will continue and also my shopping!

“Men’s costumes and manners change like leaves on the branch, some of which go and others come”

“Men’s costumes and manners change like leaves on the branch, some of which go and others come” by Dante Alighieri

By reading this thought of the great poet of my land, only a few centuries older than me, I realized how true my writer is.

Surely he did not imagine that we would have come to the bikini from his covering clothes, very covering. But in his time would been a scandal to show a bit of skin, nowadays people scandalizes about dressing too much.

Why you should try to go around dressed like a medieval lady… then let’s see if you dont give the same reaction?

But to challenge the time and thoughts I wore this dress for a day, in a virtual world (but I created the same amazement).

My night

Do you know the wonderful feeling of trying out the newly purchased clothes but when looking for accessories or completing your outfits, you fall into total panic?

Then take a cup of coffee and wear your pajamas (not that sexy, the super comfy anti sex) so you’re ready for the night, trying to figure out where to start…

But I feel cold at my feet … and here I find cute socks warming my feet and heart.

 Socks are available in 3 colors at the “Unmasking A Cure Relay For Life Team (#38)” that will be sold for 100% profit to Relay starting from May 19.
