Edited By: Denis Delaplace
URL: http://www.classiques-garnier.com/editions/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=flypage_garni
Description:

La Complainte des Argotiers est un livret facétieux anonyme (1630) faisant suite au Jargon ou Langage de l'Argot reformé (vers 1629) en le pastichant. Paru également sous le titre Response et Complainte au grand Coësre sur le jargon de l'Argot reformé, ce plaisant dialogue entre deux mendiants multiplie les parodies en jargon des gueux. La présente édition annotée et commentée apporte des compléments qui éclairent cette œuvre étonnante : extraits du Jargon, revue des études sur le sujet et glossaire.


The irreverent 'Complainte des Argotiers' (1630) is an anonymous pamphlet which pastiches the 'Jargon ou Langage de l'Argot reformé' of c. 1629. The present edition, with notes and commentary, includes additional material which illuminates this fascinating work : extracts from the original 'Jargon', a literature review, and a glossary.
