But indeed no further proofs are needed to show that, even had King Dinis never existed, the contents of the early Portuguese Cancioneiros would have been remarkable for their When Alfonso X died his grandson Dinis variety and beauty.
Plentifully educated by a Frenchman, Aymeric d'brard, afterwards Bishop of Coimbra, married to a foreign princess, Isabel of Aragon the Oueen-Saint of Portugal , profoundly impressed, no doubt, by the world-fame of Alfonso X, to whom he was sent on a diplomatic mission when not yet in his teens, he became nevertheless one of the most national of kings.

Farsighted in the conception of his plans and vigorous in their execution, the Rei Lavrador,. Among his great and abiding services to his country was the foundation of the first Portuguese University in the year , and in the same spirit he ordered the translation of many notable books from the Spanish, Latin, and Arabic into Portuguese prose, including the celebrated works of the Learned.
He thus overlapped Dante's life by four years at either end. Craveiro, Compendio , cap. Diniz trouxe a idade de ouro a Portugal. The Dedaratio placed by Guiraut Riquier of Narbonne on the lips of that king in marked the coming instinct for popular themes,. It was owing to the personal encouragement of Dinis that the waning star of both Provengal and indigenous poetry continued to shine in Portugal for another half-century. The grandson of Alfonso X was the last hope of the trohadores and jograes of the Peninsula. From Leon and Castille and Aragon they came to reap an aftermath of song and panos at his Court, and after his death remained silent or unpaid C.
The poems of King Dinis are not only more numerous but far more various than those of any other trobador, with the exception of Alfonso X, and it may perhaps be doubted whether they are all the work of his own hand.

E persegujo as pias filhas de finees que Ihe aujd odio e o querid desherdar. The Vida de Santo Aleixo also exists in two codices belonging to the middle and beginning of the fifteenth century, and Dr. Esteves Percira, who published the latter, considers that the variants point to an earlier manuscript of the beginning, of the fourteenth or end of the To about the same period i4th-i5th c.

It was natural that they should undergo their influence earlier and more strongly than their more direct and more national neighbours the Castilians, whose clear, definite descriptions in the twelfth- century Poema del Cid would send those legends drifting back to the dim regions of their birth. Even to-day connexion with and sympathy for Ireland is far commoner in Galicia than in any other part of Spain. Unhappily, most of the early Portuguese versions of the Breton legends have been lost. The probability that these were written in Portuguese, not in Spanish, is increased by the survival of A Historia dos Cavalleiros da Mesa Redonda e da Demanda do Santo Graall, as yet only partially published from the manuscript in the Vienna Hofbibliothek.
It was written probably in the fourteenth century, perhaps at the end of the thirteenth, although the Vienna manuscript is more recent and belongs to the fifteenth century, in which the work was referred to by the poet Rodriguez de la Camara. Michaelis de Vasconcellos, Cancioneiro da Ajuda, ii. This, in the same way as the. It was also known formerly as Destroygam de Jerusalem.

The problem of the date and authorship has become more fascinating than the book. Champions for Spain and of. Henry Thomas holds the scales. The ground is thick with their arrows. And beneath them all lies the simple ingenuous story as retold by Garci Rodriguez de Montalvo in or immediately after and published in , still worth reading for its freshness and for its clear good style, which Braunfels, following up the praise in Juan de Valdes' Didlogo de la Lengua [c- , declared could not be a translation.
I, cap. He dedicated it to the molt illustre Princep Ferdinand of Portugal. Very probably the fame and origin of Amadis accounted for this 'English' original, as mythical as the Hungarian origin of Las Sergas de Esplandian, and for its alleged translation into Portuguese. The words in this Prdlogo of his Amadis , que hasta aqiii no es memoria de ninguno ser visto, refer not to the fourth book but to Montalvo's Sergas de Esplandian, which is conveniently replaced by dots in T.

Because the Portuguese language was used throughout Spain in lyric poetry, it is sometimes argued as if the Portuguese had no prose, could only sing. The more real division was not between verse and prose but between the Portuguese lyrical love literature and the Spanish epic battle of Peninsular lyrics.

It was probably when he was a prisoner after the battle of Aljubarrota that he wrote the Rimado de Palacio, in which st. We know that King Dinis encouraged not only lyric poetry but also translations into Portuguese prose, but all the early Portuguese prose works are assigned to the fourteenth, not the thirteenth century.
The Infante whom he here on the strength of the passage in Montalvo's Amadis identifies with the son of King Dinis, not with the earlier Prince Afonso [c. There is no means of deciding with certainty whether Lopez de Ayala and Ferrus read Amadis in Spanish or in Portuguese, but there are inherent probabilities in favour of Portuguese. No one without a thesis to support would deny that, generally, the. Conde D. Joao de Leite Ferreira agree with Zurara.
Soledad certainly occurs in the first three books more frequently than in other Spanish prose. The Portuguese atmosphere is altogether absent in Las Sergas.

If he Hved on through the reigns of Pedro I and Fernando , and acquired new distinction in battle in the reign of the latter, this might account for Zurara's assertion that he wrote Amadis in the reign of Fernando.
But the chief obstacle to the authorship of Vasco is the existence in the Cancioneiro Colocci-Brancuti Nos. Amadis [lAh. II, cap. But does the existence of the poem entail that of a prose romance? The early mention of Tristan, e. Osiendere Gaula cuius laudes nos inter Anonymos curiose collegimus. The challenge in the last sentence is of interest, as coming in date between the two statements by Leite Ferreira and the Conde da Ericeira asserting the existence of the Portuguese text. There was a Canon of Santiago of this name in , and he may have come to the Portuguese Court on business concerning certain privileges of the Chapter which King Dinis confirmed in Amadis that of the father, this Joao de Lobeira, written in the time of King Dinis a long-lived race these Lobeiras!

Leonoreta poem belongs to a Spanish Amadis in prose. But although the priority and relations of early Portuguese and Spanish prose works are intricate and have not yet been thoroughly studied, it is clear that in many cases versions have been more carefully preserved in conservative Spain, while the Portuguese through neglect, fire, and earthquake have perished, and also that the natural tendency and development of prose, in view of.
In the document the only son mentioned is named Gon9alo. According to D. Portuguese, was from Portuguese to Spanish, not from Spanish to Portuguese. Nor would the Portuguese, for all their familiarity with the story and topography of the Breton cycle, be likely to compose original works dealing with Vindilisora Windsor or Bristoya Bristol. Unhappily, however deep may be our Bretagna. Portuguese, it has now ceased to belong to Portuguese literature another instance, if we may beg the originally ;. Portuguese history, with its heroic achievements such as the conquest of Algarve, seems to have begun just too late to be the subject of great anonymous epics, or rather the temperament of the Portuguese people eschewed them.
Of five poems, long believed to be the earliest examples. Cava or da Perda de Espanha was an infant prodigy indeed, it was supposed to have been written in oitavas in the eighth century. Cronica de Cister, Bk. VI, cap. It has been several times reprinted cf. Barreto, Orlografia , p. Minotaur, and must be the echo of some Algarvian song. Its simple repetitions have a haunting rhythm, but they are perhaps a Httle too emphatic. One early epic poem Portugal undoubtedly possessed, Poema da Batalha do Salado, by Afonso Giraldez, who himself probably took part in the battle The subject of the poem is the same as that of the Spanish Poema de Alfonso Onceno, but whether its treatment was similar we cannot say, as only forty lines of the Galician-Portuguese poem survive.
Since the authorship of the Spanish poem is doubtful and its rhymes run more naturally theory has arisen, in Galician. It is perhaps more extraordinary that both should have. Since the battle was fought in Spain it would be considered in Brandao's day a proper subject for a romance, but would be noticeable as being written in Galician. Castilian was throughout the Peninsula regarded as the fitting the epic, just '. SeeGrundriss, p. Fitzmau rice- Kelly, Litterature Espagnole, ed. Duardos the Cavalheiro dc Oliveira fessed to have found it. It is therefore surprising to find in Portugal a large number of romances.
Had the romances been elaborated in the same way as in Spain, we might have expected a large number of anonymous Portuguese romances dealing with the Breton cycle, and indeed with early Portuguese history, so rich in heroic incidents. The fact that this is not the case and the number of romances collected in Tras-os-Montes alike point to their Spanish origin, while their frequency in the Azores denotes how popular they became later in Portugal. In the sixteenth century their Spanish character was recognized. The poor escudeiro in Eufrosina is.
The partiality for Spanish applied to poetry of other kinds, and Manuel de Galhegos says that it is a bold venture to publish poetry in Portuguese.

In the third volume are reprinted romances composed by well-known Portuguese authors of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. It must be admitted that Spain generously repaid to Portugal the loan of the Galician language for lyrical composition although in each case it was.
