    Abstract:
    Juan Ruiz may or may not be the author of the Libro de buen amor (‘Book of Good Love’) (ca. 1335), a confusing miscellany of songs, fables, and first-person misadventures of a priest very much unlucky in love. The English version has an introduction and notes in English, with the primary text in facing medieval Castilian/English translation. The Spanish version has an introduction and notes in Spanish, with the primary text in facing medieval Castilian and modern Spanish. Mary-Anne Vetterling provides us with a selection of passages from the work in two parts: Part 1: The Debate Between the Greeks and the Romans, The Story of Pitas Payas, Painter from Brittany, Fable of the Country Mouse and the City Mouse Part 2: The Prophecies for the Son of King Alcaraz, Greed and the Fable of the Dog and his Reflection, The Properties of Money, The Encounter with the Mountain Woman (serrana), Characteristics of Small Women This is the .docx formatted English version, with intro, notes, and bibliography in English, and the primary text in facing medieval Castilian/English translation. This unit is part of Open Iberia/América, an open access, online teaching anthology of texts from the premodern Hispanic world. https://openiberiaamerica.hcommons.org/
