In contrast to the other poets in BNF fr. 837, Rutebeuf’s texts are deliberately grouped together and presented as his complete corpus. In fr. 837, authorship is rarely referred to in the paratext. However, Rutebeuf’s collection of texts is introduced by the rubric: ‘Ci commencent li dit Rustebuef’ [‘Here begin the works of Rutebeuf’]. The series of thirty-one texts is then concluded by the closing statement ‘Expliciunt tuit li dit Rustebuef’ [Here end all the works of Rutebeuf’].
