Commentary: Snow 1977, no. 61: "Alfonso found his poetic m├ętier in Galician and, if not a great poet, he outperformed his predecessors. He had the brain of a giant and the heart of a child and was the writer of "brutally erotic and satiric verse" (1898 ed., pp. 69-71). He was only part author, given to variations on a theme and metrical experimentation and such games as acrostics (New History, pp. 30-31)."
