Vidas, like the biographies of the Provençal troubadours in the Early Middle Ages. There, the story of the troubadours’ lives moves across history and legend, weaving together fictional and true anecdotes, like warp and weft. The fictional biographies from our collection are made of the same stuff as Vidas, drawing on words and figures. They are controversial and un-common lives, ones worth telling, without foregoing the game of fiction.
