  2. Términos:
  3. Note the first and last lines of the second cantar. Don't they suggest that this second cantar is an independent poem? Can this cantar stand on its own? How is it related to the first cantar? To the third?
  4. The theory has been advanced that the CMC is the result of two (or more) authors. Do you see any evidence of this? Concretely, are there any differences in style, content, and/or technique between the three cantares?
  5. Any further observations regarding themes, images, artistic devices, character development, structure, etc.?
