elacercricl The sirventes is a form of poetry utilised by the troubadours. It was a song written in the style of a canso, addressing current events from the perspective of a sirven, a paid soldier. It was always partisan, being either highly complimentary or oozing with vitriol. The most famous exponent of the sirventes was Bertran de Born.
