Juan Ruiz: The Book of Good Love


A masterpiece in the tradition of the Decameron or the Canterbury Tales, Juan Ruiz's fourteenth century Spanish narrative poem combines the comic and the serious, the bawdy and the practical, the satiric and the tender, the devout and the blasphemous. The poem consists of a loosely unified series of fourteen amorous adventures of the Archpriest of Hita, interlaced with debates, fabliaux, fables and exempla. In their introduction the translators survey the major scholarly studies of the poem, and offer their own critical reading of it.
