Book of Alexander

The Libro de Alexandre is an epic poem about the life of Alexander the Great, written by an anonymous Spanish cleric in the thirteenth century. It is the most substantial poem (and almost certainly the first) composed in the learned cuaderna vía verse form and provides a unique insight into the intellectual world from which it sprang.
