THE importance of Dante's De Vulgari eloquentia needs no justification to scholars of Italian literature or to scholars of medieval literature and rhetoric. (*) The work, albeit incomplete, is frequently cited for its insights into turn of the fourteenth-century attitudes toward language and literature. However, the work was not always so familiar; although first published in the sixteenth century, there is little evidence that it was well known before the nineteenth (Botterill 291). The real growth in citation of this work came after the first major critical edition of the text, that of Pio Rajna in 1896. The passage of particular interest in this article occurs in Book 2, chapter 6, where Dante offers a list of famous poets. Modern editions of the text present the list in this order: first all the Occitan names and quotations, five in all, followed by the French trouvere Thibaut de Champagne, identified by his second title, King of Navarre, lastly the list of Italians, again five poets and five lines of verse. Here is the text as published in the first critical edition, that of Rajna:
