The Poetry of Alfonso X

An Annotated Critical Bibliography (1278-2010)

by Joseph T. Snow

  • Description
  • Contents
  • Reviews
This new annotated bibliography of the Alfonso X poetic corpus covers the manuscripts, all the poems, and the 1,600 miniatures and the music of the Cantigas de Santa Maria, the acclaimed "aesthetic Bible of the thirteenth century".

This book covers the criticism of the religious and the profane poetry of Alfonso X. It treats his poetry in its complete scope, the religious (the Cantigas de Santa Maria) as well as the forty-five profane poems, mostly satires. It does so in a chronological sequence from the earliest commentary in 1278 to the most recent criticism in 2010.
The work contains five times as many entries as the original 1977 edition, including an introduction, two appendices with the profane poems and the poems treated in the items in the bibliography, and an author and subject index.

Joseph T. Snow is Professor Emeritus, Michigan State University.

"With this new bibliography researchers can determine the value and relevance of hard-to-find materials that are either long out of print or owned by a very few libraries ... We are indebted to Snow who decided to expand his previous bibliographic study on Alfonso to produce a tool for research that will serve scholars for generations to come." BULLETIN OF SPANISH STUDIES
"This bibliography should be a standard reference tool in any research library and in the private library of any serious scholar of the poetry of Alfonso [...] a meticulously detailed bibliography." THE MEDIEVAL REVIEW
