Publication details: Mélanges offerts à Rita Lejeune, I (Gembloux: J. Duculot, 1969), 502-10.
Snow ID: 336
Commentary: Snow 1977: "Piel concentrates on CV 65 as printed by Rodrigues Lapa (1965). He illuminates the problems of interpretation that remain in Alfonso's rich and involved satiric poems. He scrutinizes the text with care and makes revealing remarks on etymologies, puns, place names, and the like. We are left with a better idea of how well theme and satirical intent complement each other despite some remaining unresolved difficulties."
