||Snow 2007: "A ‘lectura actualizada’ of Alfonso's ‘Non me posso pagar tanto’. Following a rehash of biographical information, there is a discussion of both text and context. Alfonso emerges as outraged and depressed, choosing to escape into a deeply personal mode of expression. This view is in accord with De Lollis  but conflict with Michaëlis de Vasconcellos . What is lacking here is more poetic analysis."
