Commentary: Snow 1977, no. 107: "Chapter 2, "The Cancioneiros", begins with a history of the songbooks which, excepting Ajuda, all contain poems by Alfonso. Bell is always interesting reading; here he deals succinctly with Alfonso's choice of Galician Portuguese (p. 41) and the personal nature of the CSM (pp. 42-4), and he praises the artistry of the loores (p. 45). This section, though brief, is accurate. The later pages are devoted to other poets, chiefly to Alfonso's grandson, King Dinis of Portugal."
