S407 Survey of Spanish Literature I F. Jehle

Jarchas

  1. Fecha aproximada: 1040 [The earliest moaxaja was written before 1042; the jarchas must be earlier; 1040 is chosen for mnemonic reasons ---the next works we'll read could be dated 1140, 1240, and 1340.]

  2. Términos:

  3. Note the 4 puntos comunes listed on p. 10 (characteristics shared by the jarchas, villancicos, and cantigas de amigo). Villancicos are songs/poems we will study later, similar in some respects to the jarchas and which occasionally use the rhyme scheme of the zéjel.

  4. Representation of the moaxaja.

  5. Notes on jarchas included in our text.
