Commentary: Snow 1977, no. 14: "Although, as in Pellicer and others, the Querellas are still considered Alfonsine, the Alexandre is not. Comments on the three codexes are the result of first hand inspection and are accompanied by cantigas 410 and 411, both prologues, 2 and 401 in fairly respectable transcriptions (no punctuation is provided, however). An attempt is made to classify lines according to length: 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, and 16 syllables. R. de C. regrets that Alfonso's non Marian poems are lost but does, at least, recognize that Alfonso indeed wrote profane poems."
