E-Spania books have published their 4th work: A King in Search of Author-ness, by Corinne Mencé-Caster

The author analyses the conditions underlying the emergence of reflections into “author-ness” in Alphonsin historiographical discourse. The corpus – Alphonse X’s History of Spain – has been selected for its cross-cultural and thus ambiguous positioning as a historiography in both the Latin and vernacular languages, where a monarch, whose sovereignty is under threat, affirms himself at once as a king, as a subject, as a historiographer, and as a linguistic craftsman.
