Jausbert de Puycibot

Jausbert de Puycibot or Gausbert de Poicibot or Puicibot, sometimes called Lo Monge de Poicibot (the monk of Poicibot) and elsewhere Audebert, was a Limousin troubadour of the early thirteenth century (fl. 1220–1231). Fifteen of his works have survived (fourteen of them cansos), most of them conventional, but with a few that are expressive of "true feeling".

The poem S'eu vos voill tan gen lauzar had long been attributed to him, though doubts have arisen due to its appearance in a collection of poems by Monge de Montaudo. He probably wrote a sirventes that, together with another by Bertran de Preissac, forms a tenso in which the two troubadours debate the merits of old and young women. Jausbert supports las joves (the youth), while Bertran las vielhas (the aged).

Era quan l'ivernz nos laissa
E par la fuoilla en la vaissa
   E il lauzellet chanton c'uns no s'en laissa,
Fas sirventes ses biaissa,
Mas uns malastrucs m'afaissa,
    Car ab joves no.s te: Dieus li don aissa!
Mais pretz una vieilla saissa
Que non a ni carn ni craissa.
   Mal ai' er el os e daval la madaissa!
  Que la genta, covinenta, on bos pretz s'eslaissa,
Fina, francha, frescha, blancha, don jois no.s biaissa,
Mais la vuoill, si gen m'acuoill ni josta se m'acaissa,
Que la rota, que.m des tota Limoges e Aissa.
    .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .
  En Bertranz men com afacha. . .
    E volria n'agues la testa fracha!
Pois parlar l'aug del manjar ni de bon' osta.l tracha,
Al jazer compra.l ben ser, tot lo porc e la vacha,
Quar s'embarga en la pel larga, que es molla e fracha.
Semblanz es, quant hom l'ades, qu'anc no.n trais sa
 garnacha.
    .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .
E tenc m'a gran desmesura
Que, pois domna desfegura,
    Quar ja i fai muzel ni armadura.
Mas prezes de si tal cura
Per que l'arm' estes segura,
    Que.l cors desvai a totz jorns e pejura.
  Eu lor dic aquest prezic per gran bonaventura.
  En Bertran vei a lor dan, e par que, per fraichura,
  Cad' aver las! i esper e soffre et abdura.

According to one of the novellas in the Flores novellarum of Francesco da Barberino, Jausbert bumped into his neglected wife while visiting a brothel. Jausbert's works was first edited and published by William P. Shepard under the title Les Poésies de Jausbert de Puycibot (Paris, 1924).
