Commentary: Snow 2007rn"Through a literary analyis of CSM 110, S. situates the composition among those in which the task of the poet (i.e., the praising of Mary) is discussed qua artistic problem in relation to the whole of which it is, of course, but one small part. Apart from this self-conscious aspect of the poem, the basic theme/topos of ineffability is taken up — with emphasis on Alfonso's originality in treating it within the context of the CSM."
