Excerpt: The Archpoet (c. 1130-c. 1165), or (in Latin and German), is the name given to a 12th century anonymous author of ten poems from medieval Latin literature, the most famous being his Confession found in the manuscript (under CB 191). Along with Hugh Primas of Orl ans (with whom he has sometimes been confused), he is cited as the best exemplar of Goliardic poetry and one of the stellar poets of the Latin Middle Ages.

Knowledge about him comes from his poems in manuscripts: his noble birth in an unspecified Western Europe region, his respectable and classical education, his association with Archchancellor Rainald of Dassels court, and his poetic activity linked to it in content and purpose. As such, it has been recently speculated that the bibulous, extravagant personality emanating from the poems could be only serving as a fa ade despite their apparent autobiographical trend. His existence has been elaborated upon the authorial superscription appearing with the poems now ascribed to him in a small number of manuscripts as well as the consistencies in usage and style among certain of the otherwise anonymous poems in the collection.
