Description

There is no question that the Juan Ruiz’s collection of cantares and other poems is problematic. Few agree on the name, the author, the structure, or the objective of the collection. The fragmentary nature of the collection does not lend itself to easy explanations, facile interpretation, or superficial readings. The papers in this session will address the problematic nature of the Libro de buen amor, focusing on how this fragmentation destabilizes the authoritarian discourse of the archpriest by employing humor to serious subjects such as death, ecclesiastics, scholasticism, and sin.
