Commentary: Snow 1977, no. 201: "Alfonso seen as an unlucky king but a capstone of medieval civilization. Poetry seen as a prime activity and Alfonso's relations with Guiraut Riquier, his poetic jests involving Maria Balteira, Pero da Ponte and others, his calculated ingenuousness (a good obsenation), and the technical virtuosity of both his profane and religious output. These are all points deftly and swiftly made, but without detail."
