Ars Metrica

La métrica cancioneril en la época de los Reyes Católicos:

la poesía de Pedro de Cartagena

This art­icle ana­lyzes the po­etry of Pedro de Cart­agena as a rep­res­ent­at­ive work about the uses and met­ric ar­ti­fices of the court po­etry in the age of the Cath­ol­ic Mon­archs. After a long way from the most an­cient song-books as Baena’s com­pil­a­tion (PN1) or the Can­cionero de Pala­cio (SA7), in which we can still find traces of Oc­cit­an and Galician-Por­tuguese tra­di­tions, the turn-of-the-cen­tury song-books rep­res­ent a mo­ment of full­ness in the evol­u­tion of the met­ric genres.
