Overview

Mocedades de Rodrigo, telling of the youthful deeds of Rodrigo Diaz, the Cid, is a rare surviving (incomplete) epic poem from medieval Spain. Its importance cannot be overestimated. The present edition bears witness to the editor's long engagement with the text, and will rapidly be accepted as the definitive edition. It includes a paleographic transcription of the manuscript (Crónica rimada), a critical edition of the poem reworked by a pro-Palentinian cleric (Refundición de las Mocedades de Rodrigo), and a conjectural reconstruction of the original epic (Gesta de las Mocedades de Rodrigo). This editorial work is rounded off by a complete study of the poem's characteristics as a product of the late epic tradition in Castile, the process of its composition, its narrative structure, ideology and contextual inscription. Accompanying literary analysis constitutes an exhaustive commentary on the poem, drawing on modern scholarship and providing new insights. Mocedades de Rodrigo es uno de los escasos poemas épicos conservados de la España medieval, que cuenta las hazañas de juventud de Rodrigo Díaz, el Cid. Llegado a nosotros en un único testimonio incompleto, es imposible sobreestimar su importancia. La presente edición da cuenta del profundo conocimiento del texto logrado por el editor tras muchos años de dedicación, por lo que rápidamente será aceptada como edición definitiva. Consta de una transcripción paleográfica del manuscrito (Crónica rimada), una edición crítica del poema reelaborado por un clérigo pro-palentino (Refundición de las Mocedades de Rodrigo) y una reconstrucción conjetural del poema original (Gesta de las Mocedades de Rodrigo). Esta labor editorial se redondea con un completo estudio de las características del poema como producto de la tradición épica tardía en Castilla, de su proceso de composición, de su estructura narrativa, de su ideología y de su inscripción contextual. El análisis literario desarrollado en la introducción y en las notas constituye un exhaustivo comentario del poema que aprovecha los logros de la moderna crítica cidiana y al mismo tiempo ofrece una visión novedosa de la obra. LEONARDO FUNES is Professor of Medieval Spanish at the University of Buenos Aires.
