The Song of the Cid: A Dual Language Edition With Parallel Text

Venture into the heart of eleventh-century Spain, a country of warring Christian and Muslim polities, in this vibrant, translation of The Song of the Cid. Banished from the court of King Alfonso, the noble warrior Rodrigo Diaz-known as the Cid-sets out from Castile to restore his good name. In a series of battles, he earns wealth and honor for his men and his king, as well as fame and admiration for himself. But it is in rescuing his daughters from their ill-suited marriages that the Cid faces the ultimate challenge to the medieval heroic ideal.
