Title: Versification in Alfonso el Sabio’s Cantigas
Date: 1955
Publication details: Hispanic Review 23 (1955), 83-98.
Snow ID:
Commentary: Snow 1977, no. 251: "An important and enlightening study which argues most convincingly that Alfonso, in the metrics of CSM, laid the foundation for most of Spanish metrics at large and certainly for all verse forms used before the Siglo de Oro. The range of comments covers metrics, verse forms, strophic patterns, polymetrics, synalepha, hiatus, enjambement, accent, the movable caesura, and the presence of free verse"
