Commentary: Snow 2007: "The first of a series of articles in which S., through greater attention to the literary unities that give to the CSM a cohesion not often remarked, perceives an important secondary narrative: the possible spiritual (auto)biography of Alfonso X. This study concentrates on the loores, but is not limited to them, in the clarification of the close relationship of Proven├žal image patterns and the ones that define the attitudes of lover-beloved in the CSM. The conclusion is that we are not dealing with a casual literary 'influence' but rather with a carefully-framed design that is consistent throughout the whole of the CSM."
