The complete works of the author are available for the first time in English, being originally published in the Old Spanish of the 13th century. The translators have preserved the medieval flavor and imagery, and both secular and religious readers will enjoy the poems. Berceo who was a priest is the first Spanish poet known to us. Medieval Spain, with its glories, foibles,miracles, and squabbles comes alive in this masterful translation. Other Translators are Annette Grant Cash and Richard Terry Mount.
