Commentary: Notes from Snow 1977rn"S. traces the poetic tradition in the West of the praise of Mary which reaches its high water mark with the Alfonsine loor. The forty two-loores are treated on many fronts: rhyme schemes, musical schemes, imagistic unity, and literary merits. The study attempts to show how independent a creative artist Alfonso was in the CSM in general and in its lyric sections in particular."
