Excerpt

This book contains a revised version of a doctoral dissertation submitted to the University of Cambridge. The revision has not been fundamental, although changes have been made at many points in the text. The study has two main aspects. The first two chapters deal with critical problems concerning the background to the Poema de mio Cid and the Crónica de veinte reyes, while the remaining chapters study in detail the incorporation of the former into the latter. The hitherto unpublished text of the relevant section of the Crónica is included in an appendix. I should like to thank Professor D. W. Lomax of the University of Birmingham and Dr D. G. Pattison of the University of Oxford for their help and advice in the preparation of this work. Above all, I wish to express my gratitude to Professor C. C. Smith of the University of Cambridge for his invaluable guidance and encouragement throughout the time that I have been engaged upon these studies.
