El caballero determinado de Hernando de Acuña: tradición textual y autoría

Marcial Rubio Árquez    Università degli Studi «G. d’Annunzio», Chieti-Pescara, Italia    



Hernando de Acuña’s El caballero determinado, translation of Olivier de la Marche’s French text Le chevalier délibéré, was first printed in 1553 and had considerable success until the end of XVI century, with 8 editions. Still today the text continues to present two problems: its authorship and the relationship between the different testimonies which transmit it. Regarding the former, it is unclear whether the work was translated and versified by Acuña or if the first task, the translation, was made by Carlos V and our poet put it in verse. Regarding the second problem, besides the 8 editions of the text, the existence of a sixteenth-century manuscript has allowed to establish different relationships between testimonies. This work attempts to solve both problems using informations extracted from the critical edition I am ending.
