Le Livre Messire Ode: Concordance to Piaget's Edition

The line numbering in Piaget’s edition of Le Livre Messire Ode, which is the version that is cited in the existing commentary, differs from that in Grenier-Winther’s edition, which we have adopted here, for four reasons. (1) Grenier-Winther includes in her numbering more of the lines that one infers from the rhymes are missing than Piaget does. (2) Grenier-Winther provides the full last stanza of the rondeaux (as we do as well), where Piaget gives only the initial line. (3) The prose passage that follows line 1089 (1080 in Piaget) takes up four more lines in Piaget’s edition than it does in Grenier-Winther’s. (4) Piaget makes two errors in his numbering, dropping a line between his 1665 and 1670 and another between his 1695 and 1700. To locate here a passage cited from Piaget’s edition, it is thus necessary to add to his line numbers, as follows:
