Mocedades de Rodrigo, telling of the youthful deeds of Rodrigo Diaz, the Cid, is a rare surviving (incomplete) epic poem from medieval Spain. Its importance cannot be overestimated. The present edition bears witness to the editor's long engagement with the text, and will rapidly be accepted as the definitive edition. It includes a paleographic transcription of the manuscript (Cronica rimada), a critical edition of the poem reworked by a pro-Palentinian cleric (Refundicion de las Mocedades de Rodrigo), and a conjectural reconstruction of the original epic (Gesta de las Mocedades de Rodrigo). This editorial work is rounded off by a complete study of the poem's characteristics as a product of the late epic tradition in Castile, the process of its composition, its narrative structure, ideology and contextual inscription. Accompanying literary analysis constitutes an exhaustive commentary on the poem, drawing on modern scholarship and providing new insights. Mocedades de Rodrigo es uno de los escasos poemas epicos conservados de la Espana medieval, que cuenta las hazanas de juventud de Rodrigo Diaz, el Cid. Llegado a nosotros en un unico testimonio incompleto, es imposible sobreestimar su importancia. La presente edicion da cuenta del profundo conocimiento del texto logrado por el editor tras muchos anos de dedicacion, por lo que rapidamente sera aceptada como edicion definitiva. Consta de una transcripcion paleografica del manuscrito (Cronica rimada), una edicion critica del poema reelaborado por un clerigo pro-palentino (Refundicion de las Mocedades de Rodrigo) y una reconstruccion conjetural del poema original (Gesta de las Mocedades de Rodrigo). Esta labor editorial se redondea con un completo estudio de las caracteristicas del poema como producto de la tradicion epica tardia en Castilla, de su proceso de composicion, de su estructura narrativa, de su ideologia y de su inscripcion contextual. El analisis literario desarrollado en la introduccion y en las notas constituye un exhaustivo comentario del poema que aprovecha los logros de la moderna critica cidiana y al mismo tiempo ofrece una vision novedosa de la obra. LEONARDO FUNES is Professor of Medieval Spanish at the University of Buenos Aires.
