 commune --¬† Britannica Concise Encyclopedia¬†- The online encyclopedia you can trust!
The communes of Flanders were second only to the Italian communes in size and industrial and commercial organization; at times political relations between the count of Flanders, the French king (his overlord), and England gave the Flemish communes—Ghent in particular—a significant role in European affairs.

Communes began as amalgamations of collective farms; but, in contrast to the collectives, which had been engaged exclusively in agricultural activities, the communes were to become multipurpose organizations for the direction of local government and the management of all economic and social activity.

As in the Italian communes, the system of government is oligarchic rather than democratic; power tends to be in the hands of relatively few families.
These districts are like Athens, in that the community is small enough for every adult male to be able to walk to an assembly and cast a vote.

All these literary forms were produced within the urban centres of late medieval Italy between 1200-1400 in reaction to, and as readings of, the urban experience in its multiple guises.
By juxtaposing the loci and styles of communal literary production the hope is to examine the literary and spatial commonplaces shared by these various forms of urban narrative and reflect upon what their witness to civic communion revealed about the tensions and benefits of social aggregation within self-determining urban communities.
