El Cantar de mio cid by Carmelo Valero Planas( Visual )

10 editions published between 1980 and 2010 in Spanish and English and held by 574 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"El Cid is unique among the world's great epics because it was composed so close to the actual historical events (a mere 40 years after the death of Rodrigo Diaz de Vivar, el Cid himself) that we can distinguish between man and legend. Meticulous attention to historical detail, spectacular cinematic production values, and the swashbuckling plot itself make this medieval epic superbly entertaining as well as educational. An RTVE Production. (Spanish with English subtitles, 60 minutes)."

This documentary, produced by RTVE, traces his life from Fuentevagueros in Andalusia to his death at age 38 in 1936. Archival footage and personal interviews with family members, poets, writers, and artists including Edward Albee and Philip Levine provide an accurate portrait of both Lorca the man and the literary giant.

Wars for independence in Spain's American possessions are also chronicled. Dramatizations and film clips capture the harshness of the period"--Container
