The twenty-five incisive essays treat a broad range of topics from the development and diffusion of the cantare in Italy in the fourteenth and sixteenth centuries to its survival in modern culture. More particularly, the focus is on questions such as the performance of the cantare, its ties with similar genres (namely liturgical drama and the chivalric epic), its literary and folkloric sources, and its circulation in both oral and printed forms.
