Amadis of Gaul : a novel of chivalry of the 14th century presumably first written in Spanish( )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 989 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the long history of European prose fiction, few works have been more influential and more popular than the romance of chivalry Amadis of Gaul. Although its original author is unknown, it was probably written during the early fourteenth century. The first great bestseller of the age of printing, Amadis of Gaul was translated into dozens of languages and spawned sequels and imitators over the centuries. A handsome, valiant, and undefeatable knight, Amadis is perhaps best known today as Don Quixote's favorite knight-errant and model. This exquisite English translation restores a masterpiece to print

Iconography in medieval Spanish literature by John Esten Keller( Book )

14 editions published between 1983 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 680 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The masterpieces of medieval Spanish literature have come to be known and loved by Hispanists, and more recently by others throughout the world. But the brilliant illuminations with which the original manuscripts were illustrated have remained almost totally unknown on the shelves of the great European libraries. To redress this woeful neglect, two noted scholars here present a generous selection from this great visual treasury including many examples never before reproduced. John E. Keller and Richard P. Kinkade have chosen five representative works, dating from the mid-thirteenth century to t
Aesop's fables by Aesop( )

5 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 644 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1489 Johan Hurus printed the first collection of fables in Spain, Lavida del Ysopetconsusfabulas hystoriadas. Illustrated with nearly 200 woodcuts, this work quickly became the most-read book in Spain, beloved of both children and adults. Reprinted many times in the next three centuries and carried to the New World, it brought to Spanish letters a cornucopia of Aesopic fables, oriental apologues, and folktales that were borrowed by such writers as Cervantes, Lope de Vega, and especially the fabulists Iriarte and Samaniego. John Keller and Clark Keating now present the first English transla
Pious brief narrative in medieval Castilian & Galician verse : from Berceo to Alfonso X by John Esten Keller( Book )

22 editions published between 1978 and 2015 in English and Spanish and held by 623 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Brief narratives, "" or medieval precursors to the modern short story, are compositions couched in the form of a tale of reasonable short length. They began with writings in Latin and, eventually, made their way into the vernacular languages of Europe. They include the fable, the apologue, the exemplum, the saint's life, the miracle, the biography, the adventure tale, the romance, the jest, and the anecdote, among others. In Spain, the oldest extant brief narratives in written form are in verse and date from the late twelfth and early thirteenth centuries. The earliest examples include La vi

Daily life depicted in the Cantigas de Santa Maria by John Esten Keller( Book )

9 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 512 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The hundreds of illuminated miniatures found in the Cantigas de Santa Maria, centered around the miracles of the Virgin Mary and sponsored by King Alfonso X (1252-84), reveal many vistas of daily life in thirteenth-century Spain. No other source provides such an encyclopedic view of all classes of medieval European society, from kings and popes to the lowest peasants. Men and women are seen farming, hunting, engaging in war, going on pilgrimage, watching bullfights, gambling, making love, tending silkworms, eating, cooking, and writing poetry. Placing the cantigas in the context of medieval life, the authors have grouped the illuminations by theme and introduce each section with commentary on the illustrations that follow
España en su literatura by Nicholson B Adams( Book )

16 editions published between 1962 and 1991 in 3 languages and held by 474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Here are the landmarks of Spanish literature in an edition especially prepared for intermediate students. The Third Edition includes selections by 52 authors representing the most widely taught genres--narrative poetry, lyric verse, the short story, and selections from drama and novels. Eight new selections introduce students to contemporary writing and give increased attention to important women writers. While selections have not been simplified, they are brief enough to be read in a single assignment. Author introductions, full annotations, and a thorough Spanish-English end-vocabulary help students understand each reading; Preguntas, Temas, new Debates and Comparaciones, as well as new appendixes of literary terms and literary periods, encourage a deeper consideration of the literature."--Back cover

Don Quixote is a middle-aged man living in 16th century La Mancha in Spain who is obsessed with romance novels involving chivalry. He arms himself to defend the weak and vanquish the wicked. The two-part novel is the story of his many and often very humorous adventures. The novel is rated as one of the premier works of Western literature and is the source of the popular terms "tilting at windmills" and "quixotic" for one's pursuit of something purely fanciful

11 editions published between 1977 and 2015 in English and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Don Juan Manuel, nephew of King Alfonso X, The Wise, knew well the appeal of exempla (moralized tales), which he believed should entertain if they were to provide ways and means for solving life's problems. His fourteenth-century book, known as El Conde lucanor, is considered by many to be the purest Spanish prose before the immortal Don Quixote of Cervantes written two centuries later. He found inspiration for his tales in classical and eastern literatures, Spanish history, and folklore. His stories are not translations, but are his retelling of some of the best stories in existence. The tr
