This chapter examines the relation between courtly lyric and romance with reference to the treatment of the motif of dying for love. The main texts under discussion are the vida devoted to Guillem de Cabestanh, the Castelain de Couci, and the Chastelaine de Vergy. Particular attention is paid to the so-called ‘eaten heart’ legend and thereby to the notion of incorporation.

Keywords:   Castelain de Coucy, Chastelaine de Vergy, Guillem de Cabestanh, incorporation, eaten heart
