Par maintes foys

author of text

And when does a young man’s fancy lightly turn to thoughts of courtly love? Why, in spring, when you ‘cast a clout’ and venture out to enjoy nature, red in tooth and claw. Or beak and claw, in the case of Jehan Vaillant’s Par maintes foys—count the number of birds vying for supremacy of the skies.

from notes by Catherine Bott © 2006

Et quand un jeune homme se prend-il à songer à l’amour courtois? Mais enfin, au printemps, quand on «change de peau» et qu’on part goûter la nature, toutes dents et toutes griffes dehors. Ou, plutôt, tous becs et toutes serres dehors, dans le cas de Par maintes foys de Jehan Vaillant—voyez le nombre d’oiseaux qui se disputent la suprématie des cieux.

Français: Hypérion

Und wann wendet sich des jungen Mannes Phantasie besonders gern der Minne zu? Natürlich im Frühling, wenn er „den Mantel abwirft“ und sich in die ungezähmte Natur hinauswagt. Unbezähmbar in Bezug auf Schnabel und Kralle im Falle von Jehan Vaillants Par maintes foys—man beachte die Vielzahl von Vögeln, die um die Vorherrschaft am Himmel streiten.
