Manrique Jorge
(ок. 1440–1479)

Manrique Jorge (ок. 1440–1479)

Spanish poet and soldier. Most of his verse is undistinguished, but his Coplas [couplets], on his father’s death, are among the treasures of world poetry. Incomparably elegant, they describe an exemplar of medieval knighthood and his stoic acceptance of death. Longfellow’s notable English translation appeared in 1833.

Spain, 1979, Jorge Manrique
