    It made me so happy to see the reference to El Cid. One of my favorite books when I was a kid was a school library book that retold the legend of the Cid in prose. (I’m pretty sure it didn’t mention the episode of defrauding some Jewish moneylenders, however.)

    I suppose if you don’t sanitize your history and your Great Men, then you’re forced to spend time explaining why Greatness generally isn’t, and who wants to do that?

    I think you are awesome. This is awesome. Thank you! From a reader of the Cantos so sick of the dry commentaries of reference upon reference with no reflection
