The Poem of the CidBook - 2006
Students of Spanish literature have long been familiar with this eight-hundred-year-old epic detailing the legendary exploits of the soldier-adventurer Ruy D#65533;az of Bivar, El Cid, and of his part in the long struggle between Christianity and Islam. The epic poem recounts the adventures of the Cid; of his peerless steed, Babieca, and of his two famous swords, Colada and Tiz#65533;n; of his wife, Do#65533;a Ximena, and his two daughters, Do#65533;a Elvira and Do#65533;a Sol, who found sanctuary with Abbot Don Sancho in the monastery of San Pedro de Carde#65533;a during the Cid's exile; and of the despicable and black-hearted princes of Carri#65533;n, Diego and Fernando Gonz#65533;lez.
