The Status of the Reading Subject in the Libro de Buen Amor Paperback / softback
Part of the North Carolina Studies in the Romance Languages and Literatures series
The undisputed masterpiece of fourteenth-century Spain by Juan Ruiz, Archpriest of Hita, affords a particularly privileged locus for the implementation of reader-response theory.
As opposed to many medieval authors, Ruiz explicitly refuses to prescribe interpretation for his readership (as evidenced by his programatic rewriting of Augustine's Confessions) a fact that has led to widely divergent critical readings of his fictional biography.
