Commentary: Snow 1977, no. 211: "A book to be avoided. Conceived as a poetic kind of history, it is seminovelized and told in the present tense. Pages 64-8, for example, recreate a musical evening at Alfonso's court featuring the performance of the king's own cantiga 256. Alfonso is later seen dying in the arms of his daughter, Queen Beatriz of Portugal, who sings cantiga 10. Needless to say, there is no documentation for anything."
