Faccon, Manuela. "Fortuna de la Confessio Amantis en la Península Ibérica: el testimonio portugués." Zaragoza: Prensas Universitarius de Zaragoza, 2011 ISBN 9788415031352

Review

The volume makes available in published form Faccon's 2007 dissertation, "La Fortuna de la Confessio Amantis en la Península Ibérica: Estudio Comparativo de las Traducciones y Edicíon de MS Madrid, Real Biblioteca, II-3088 (rev. JGN 37.2). She presents a transcription and palaeographic discussion of Books I-IV in the Portuguese MS, a critical edition of those Books, a discussion of the courts of Castile and Portugal as literary environments for the translations of Portuguese and Castilian Confessios; includes a chronology of "references, studies and editions" of the Spanish and Portuguese translations from 1433-38 through her own doctoral defense in 2007 (pp. 32-35). Along with the text, readers may find useful the palaeographical section, for its reproduction of elements of the quite difficult Portuguese hand, as well as the full-page reproductions of selected folia (e.g., fol. 65v, p. 153), in black-and-white.] [RFY.
