  1. Ah El Cantar del buen Cid A qui n se le pudo ocurrir obligar a un ni ato de 14 a digerir esta joya No tiene ni boca ni sesos para hacerlo Ahora a mis 32 en cambio, he sonreido y sonreido, acariciando la misma copia de p ginas amarillentas que compre alla en 1993 so pena de Rojo en la libreta A diferencia de mis a os mozos o moz rabes , no he sido infiel o indiferente al texto esta vez al contrario, he apreciado el terru o de historia que nos ha reconquistado del ya olvidado brevario escolar los [...]


  2. The Poem of the Cid, the first great work of Spanish literature, tells the story of the 11th century military leader Rodrigo Diaz de Vivar, his unjust exile, his rehabilitation through military conquest and tribute, and his search for justice following the humiliation and abuse of his two daughters at the hands of their husbands.I wanted to like this better than I did After all, it is the first known production of a great nation, the heroic expression of a people, and I had prepared myself to lo [...]


  3. This book has been sitting around my bookshelves for a long time, ever since a friend from college gave it to me on a whim and because of my impending trip to Spain, I finally decided to pick it up It is a quick and light read and I was pleased to find out that this is the oldest extant epic poem in Castilian, and a foundational work of Spanish literature So I ve done my homework.The poem tells the story of Rodrigo D az de Vivar 1043 1099 , a medieval Spanish nobleman and military leader of grea [...]


  4. This book has it all Swords Dancing And beards All tangled up in an epic historic poem The Cid a gallantly bearded knight banished by his king for crimes he did not commit goes smiting and smashing all over Spain, killing Moors like flies and creating a kingdom of his own by the sweat of his beard And oh what a beard it is The Beard of The Cid manages to become arguably one of the greatest sidekicks of all time I myself am growing my own beard in solidarity with the Beard of the Cid And, someday [...]


  5. Este cantar de gesta no fue escrito para los ansiosos de GR que compiten por leer m s de cien libros al a o A m me ha llevado 40 d as leerlo, y son solo 136 p ginas No sirve de nada leerlo en tres d as, un cantar cada d a, porque quien as lo haga no se habr enterado de nada Cuando iba por la mitad del tercer cantar me di cuenta de que cada vez consultaba menos el glosario, se al de que iba asimilando el castellano en que est escrito Asimismo es una p rdida de tiempo leerlo sin estar preparado pa [...]


  6. Another well, no wonder it s a classic from my project of reading from Philip Ward s A Lifetime s Reading Five Hundred Great Books to be Enjoyed over 50 Years But Poem of the Cid can be two different types of experience I read two translation side by side I started with Paul Blackburn s modern verse translation, when I found it at the library book store I had just read Blackburn s translations of troubadour poetry and liked them very much, so I thought I d continue But then, once in and discover [...]


  7. The Song of the Cid, like The Song of Roland, is a story from the Spanish frontier, set amidst the wars between Christians and Moors The opening of the poem has been lost, but by this chance we are dropped straight into the action The Cid, already a legendary warrior in the service of King Alfonso of Castile, has been given nine days to leave the kingdom We find him in tears, leaving his home at Vivar Then it s into the saddle and away into exile in the Moorish borderlands between Toledo and Val [...]


  8. It is our Odyssey, our Iliad If most English American authors can be traced back to Shakespeare and Homer, ours can be traced back to Cervantes and Mio Cid.


  9. I ve wanted to read The Song of My Cid since the age of 16, when I visited Toledo, Spain, and saw El Cid s alleged sword Tizona on display Our local tour guide told us of Toledo s place in the story, but it was the memory of Tizona that stuck with me, and I told myself that one day I d read the epic I can t believe it has taken me sixteen years literally half my lifetime , but I finally got around to reading it The experience was well worth the wait In fact, I m glad I waited and had a chance to [...]


  10. This is undoubtedly, one of the great classic poems of Spanish literature of medieval chivalry I read it during my school days but I still remember it as one of the most well designed stories of the medieval society The poem tells the story of a knight who has been banished and all the stories and adventures that he will force to live for it It s a good book to understand much better the Middle Ages, their customs and values, entrenched the concept of honor and the importance of recovering it as [...]



  11. El Cid The name El Cid Spanish el i is a modern Spanish denomination composed by the article el meaning the and Cid which comes from the Old Castilian loan word id from the dialectal Arabic word s di or sayyid, which means Lord or Master CidiCi Lopez D _ El El Cid arrafid 192_p15ml ,


  12. The first half of this tale speaks of the successful marauding of the exile, El Cid, who attacked one civilized place after another It reminded me of a passage in Gibbon about the Normans his Norman followers, excluded from their native and their promised land, wandered among the hills and valleys of Italy, and earned their daily subsistence by the sword Chapter LVI of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire Later on, the ahistorical mal treatment of the hero s daughters reminded me of the brut [...]


  13. This book would have benefited from a greater analysis of the historical characters, rather than some cursory observations about the historiography King Alfonso is generally remembered as a conniving treacherous lord and the Cid was something of a rogue warrior often at odds with this kingdom Some of this is evident in the story as the banished Cid no clear reason why good Alfonso banished him wonders across Spain raiding and fighting Christians and Muslims, Spaniards and Catalans His only quest [...]


  14. Oh, mio Cid I m glad I wasn t forced to read this when I was a teen cause I m sure I would have hated it Now that I m almost on my mid twenties I decided to give it a shot I expected it to be boring and long and I was surprised to have be it be simple but emotive and even interesting Perhaps it s just me being a fan of knights of any kind but I enjoyed it The language wasn t too archaic to be tiring, or at least it was not in comparison to the Greek texts I ve been reading lately Things I didn t [...]


  15. Reading medieval romances is, for me, something like watching Western movies might be for those men of certain different tastes but the same proclivities as have persisted in the male members of the human species perennially They are a window into a time when men were men, so to speak Whether such an idealized time really existed is immaterial to the continued relevance of the idea as a powerful image and inspiration in the masculine consciousness This particular work is a prime example.El Cid i [...]


  16. A book I never thought I d read possibly because I was appalled by Charlton Heston at an impressionable age Compared to Robocop Roland, El Cid is a complex, amiable guy The archetypal Spanish hero is clearly the stuff of legend, a champion passionately determined to serve his king by conquering everything in sight, rather than the grand brigand Rodrigo Diaz probably was in bitter truth See Richard Fletcher s The Quest for El Cid Lesley Byrd Simpson s translation is a quick read, pleasurable in t [...]


  17. Le doy 3,5 Todav a recuerdo cuento sufr cuando me toco leerlo El Cantar de mio Cid trata el tema del complejo proceso de recuperaci n de la honra perdida por el h roe, en la que la restauraci n le va a suponer al mismo una honra mayor a la de la situaci n de partida.Ir viendo como el, luego de ser desterrado acusado de robo y despojado de sus bienes, va gan ndose el favor y perd n del Rey As obtiene beneficios mejores, como una nueva heredad.Pensando que su suerte estaba cambiada, surge una nuev [...]


  18. Aunque me sienta culpable, ya que creo que estoy siendo muy injusta con la primera obra literaria conocida escrita en castellano, me siento incapaz de otorgarle algo m s que una estrella.En mi opini n, antival rica para los valores de hoy en d a, eso s y hasta est pida No me gusto la poes a ni tampoco el estilo.Y me da lo mismo si es una obra maestra para la poca Me carg.Y, honestamente, no veo el valor de la obra Talvez podr a ser valor hist rico, pero en ese caso el Ministerio no obligar a a m [...]


  19. The Song of Cid takes you to medieval times and stories of brave knights, from which Rodrigo Diaz di Bivar, or El Cid, was the bravest A book from early 14th century, telling tales about a Spanish vassal, fighting against both extreme odds and various enemies, Moors and Christians alike What I liked about the book was the look back on the medieval times and the knightly mentality Not only is Cid a pious Christian, but a loyal vassal to a king from whose service he was banished, serving him never [...]


  20. Sempre restar agra t a la meva professora de literatura de l escola secund ria la lectura d aquest i altres cl ssics Thanks to my Literature teacher for making me read this and other classics Siempre estar agradecido a mi profesora de Literatura de la escuela secundaria la lectura de este y otros cl sicos.


  21. Esta es una lectura fundamental y hermosa que hay que hacer cuando se est preparado para hacerla Leer el Poema de mio Cid con poca experiencia lectora es como querer escuchar y entender la tetralog a de Wagner solo conociendo el reguet n Por eso, especulo, hay tantos comentarios negativos a este monumento en esta web.


  22. Although most people tend to like this book, I couldn t help but see through all of the hipocritical characters, which were at the least annoying A good adventure book, but seeped with a strange mix of fiction and nonfiction that I highly disliked I couldn t possibly gift this historical book any stars, sorry.


  23. H muito tempo atr s em uma Espanha dominada pelos moros , Surge um her i, El cid o conquistadorA estrat gia do seu bando era essa conquistavam uma cidade e depois a vendia para os pr prios donos , assim juntaram muitos tesouros formaram um grande ex rcito e conquistaram Sevilha Trai es interesses e mortes marcam esse grande poema her ico.


  24. Another one I HAD to read for high school Yet, I liked the old cavalier style of this one I guess it is a MUST for people studying Spanish literature.


  25. The poetry is obvious in the Spanish on the left page, the translation on the right tells the story The classic bloody tale of brutality in the middle ages.



  26. A facsimile edition of the C dice de Per Abat , the unique preserved copy 14th century of a 13th lost manuscript The C dice de Per Abat is currently in the National Library in Madrid.Men ndez Pidal, through a linguistic analysis of the existing copy of the Poema de M o Cid, dated the composition of the text around 1140.
