«Huc usque, me miseram» (CB 126) is one of the most interesting poems of the «CarminaBurana». We can find in it at least three elements of big suggestion: 1) the theme of the pregnancy; 2) the choice of a girl as spokeswoman; 3) the subject of the "absentia" of the lover. In this papera strict analysis of the text and of its literary, metrical, rhetorical characteristics is produced, withsome considerations about the theme of the “female voice” and a particular attention to the topics thatoccur in the poem and the relations with the contemporary French lyric (for example, the “chanson de femme”). The appendix then shows the relations between CB 126 and the “letter of the pregnantwoman” which we can read in Boncompagnus of Signa’s «Rota Veneris».
