Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Juan Ruiz's Libro de Buen Amor is one of the major literary accomplishments of the Iberian Middle Ages, and has generated an extensive secondary bibliography. Its uniqueness and diversity have thrilled and perplexed readers, and its influence is felt in modern letters. The current volume contains a series of essays that offer new scholarly insights into the Libro, in tribute to the late G. B. Gybbon-Monypenny and his 'Libro de buen amor' Studies, and in order to contextualize the Libro for a fresh generation of readers. The Preface addresses the critical legacy of the articles in Gybbon-Monypenny's Tamesis volume, and assesses trends in Libro scholarship. The articles offer surveys and new insights on the context and socio-political milieu of Juan Ruiz (Louise M. Haywood), the Libro's metrics (Martin J. Duffell), its use of traditional wisdom (Barry Taylor), and its transmission (Jeremy Lawrance), the central episodes of Don Amor and Doña Endrina (Alan Deyermond, Dorothy S. Severin), and the application to the Libro of modern critical approaches, drawing on Mikhail Bakhtin, folklore studies, chaos theory, and reader-reception theory (Elizabeth Drayson, Laurence de Looze, Louise O. Vasvári).
