Commentary: Snow 2007rn"Montoya offers help in understanding the rhetorical undergirding of Pr. B with a strongly-argued case for seeing in Alfonso's lexicon reflections of specific poetic practices advocated in contemporary artes. Thus, 'entendimento' corresponds to 'intellectio', 'razon' to 'dispositio', and 'ben trobar' to 'inventio'. Seen in this light, Pr. B becomes a mini ars poetica for the CSM. The study is rounded off with a Spanish translation of this poem."
