Peter Such

Liverpool University Press

Aris and Phillips Hispanic Classics

  • This three-volume Chronicle is an invaluable and wide-ranging source of information on this critical period of peninsular history
  • López de Ayala's sombre portrait of the Castile's most notorious ruler is both compelling and intriguing
  • The translation is accompanied by a text taken from Germán Orduna's ground-breaking edition of the Chronicle
  • A clear and readable translation of a rich and complex text
  • The support material provides a detailed introduction to the circumstances of the Chronicle's composition, the background to the events that it narrates and the questions posed by López de Ayala's tendentious depiction of King Pedro
