The Chiastic Structure of Peter Caxaro's Cantilena
Book Description HTML
The author proposes that the 15th-century poem 'Cantilena' of Peter Caxaro is structured in a chiastic form. He provides internal and external evidence to his claim. With this article the author introduces what might perhaps be the most ground-breaking development to the studies of the 'Cantilena' in the fifty years since its discovery in 1966.
