Overview

A Companion to the Libro de Buen Amor by Louise O. Vasvari

Este nuevo volumen ofrece ensayos de especialistas anglófonos sobre el Libro de Buen Amor, obra monumental del siglo XIV. El volumen responde a la necesidad de un enfoque actualizado que examina el estado de las cuestiones principales (como son la de la autoría y su contexto, la métrica, las tradiciones manuscrita e impresa, el uso de exempla y proverbios, y las aproximaciones teóricas al Libro) y sus implicaciones para una lectura del Libro. Además aporta dos estudios de uno de los episodios principales (el encuentro del arcipreste con Don Amor hasta la muerte de Doña Endrina). Se explora también la estructura de la obra juanruizana como un texto pre-novelístico en el sentido bajtiniano y desde la teoría del caos. Contribuyen: Laurence de Looze, Alan Deyermond, Martín Duffell, Elizabeth Drayson, Jeremy Lawrance, Dorothy S. Severin, Barry Taylor, y los editores. This volume of essays on the fourteenth-century Libro de Buen Amor by Anglophone Hispanists comprises survey articles (author and milieu, print and manuscript traditions, metrics, exempla and proverbs, modern theoretical treatments of the Libro), fresh readings of a key passage (the encounter between Don Amor and the Archpriest, and don Melón and doña Endrina), and appraisals of the Libro's meanings and structure as pre-novelistic discourse, and through chaos theory. Contributors are Alan Deyermond, Elizabeth Drayson, Martin Duffell, Jeremy Lawrance, Laurence de Looze, Dorothy S. Severin, Barry Taylor, and the editors.
