Description

This troubadour poet found a way to express the trials of the heart at war with itself, a spirit subject to love, and a sense of worth determined by the acceptance or rejection of the Beloved Lady. There are only a select few poems by Perdigon that survive to this day. This is an amazing tour de force, in that these translations render him accessible to audiences in English and Spanish. He ranks among the finest poets in any vernacular language. This research presented in notes and descriptive analysis demonstrates the impressive range of influence he once had. This volume demonstrates through text, translation, and analyses, the poet Perdigon is an ingenious master craftsman in his own right who can afilatz, or hone, an image or a metrical device to perfection. This book reclaims Perdigon from the shadows of obscurity.
