The rondeau, as it is known today, is a literary genre originating from medieval and French Renaissance poetry. In this thesis I am relying on the distinction between the rondeau group (relating to all the subgenres from the early triolet) and the rondeau genre (dating from the sixteenth century), established by Gleeson White, Leon Emile Kastner and Hellen Louis Cohen. To understand the genre and trace its history, I compiled a corpus of poems from three literatures: Russian (1898‒1924), German (1885‒1930) and Serbian (1903‒1999). Apart from that, handbooks, treatises and manuals used by poets and researchers have been analysed.
