First published in 1920, this book presents, in an extended form, the content from a course of six lectures delivered as the Norman MacColl Lectures at the University of Cambridge during the Spring of 1917. The text provides a comprehensive review of Spanish and Portuguese romances of chivalry, with information on their origins in the Iberian Peninsula around the turn of the fifteenth century and how they went on to spread across Western Europe. Detailed notes, appendices and a bibliography are also included. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in Spanish and Portuguese romances, and European literature in general.
