Thus they think of amor as a problem. In this they resemble the verse romances. Although the lais refer to the Magister amoris R 38 V I O L E N T PA S S I O N S through a variety of textual echoes, they in fact stage the lack of the love doctor’s philosophy rather than its presence. Each of the lais adopts a conception of amor suitable for a celibate population as a negative emotion to be repressed. But the plots of the lais illustrate the inadequacies of these conceptions in a secular context.
But amor is not presented as an ideal: it is presented rather as a problem to be wrestled into a useful form. Love as a Problem It is simply implausible that a society as violent toward women as medieval French society would suddenly begin to idealize women. 39 True, it seems that the twelfth century represented a slightly safer environment for women, in absolute terms, than the previous centuries, because of a growing tendency to woo women rather than simply to carry them off. James Brundage writes But Western authorities in the twelfth century evidently considered forcible rape a less pressing issue than their predecessors had.
But while these regimes may have sufficed in a scholarly context, the aristocratic culture, valuing marriage, required its own set of emotives for handling desire. Secular clerics composing at court, therefore, needed to create new emotives to engage this audience. However, the traces of the schoolroom linger in their analyses of the problematic emotion of amor. The similarities between medieval and modern conceptions of the emotions are striking. Both modern and medieval conceptions assume that the applications of emotional regimes influence and alter the experience of emotions individuals believe to be spontaneous.
