Commentary: Snow 1977, no. 24 bis: "Pages 194-8 (Spanish version) contain an early summary of the main points of the poetic letter and reply (Supplicatio and Declaratio) exchanged between Guiraut Riquier and Alfonso X, in which Alfonso's position as arbiter in matters of poetry is made evident (for good modern editions of these, and commentary, see Bertolucci Pizzorusso [1966] and Vuolo [1968]). The appreciation of the CSM on pp. 217-19 is of no scholarly value; however, it takes note of, and credits Alfonso with, a strong effort to revive the waning troubadour fashion in lyric poetry."
