We are also reminded of da Lentini's position as already translational, both in his own engagement with the Proven9al troubadour tradition (most emphatically in Giacomo's own partial translation of Folquet de Marselha's canso, 'A vos, midontc, voill retrair' en cantan' in 'Madonna, dir vo voglio') and in the preservation of his texts in linguistically Tuscanized forms in the manuscript tradition.
In the first narrative fragment, which effectively acts as the introduction to Pale de la Gialine, echoes of remembering reach the poet via Folquet de Marselha; these foreshadow the rest of the volume, correlating to the whole scriptural/structural journey of the text, and are aptly based upon the binomialism of memory/forgetfulness and present/past.
