Sample text

For instance, Minsheu bases many of his grammar lessons on popular Spanish works such as Diana, La Celestina, Guevara’s Menosprecio de corte and Libro aureo de Marco Aurelio, Lazarillo de Tormes, and La Floresta española as well as Spanish translations of Latin classics. The Spanish excerpts are accompanied by English translations and explanations for Minsheu’s pupils to study. 18 The tendency to connect language instruction to an appreciation of literature is equally visible in William Thomas’s Principal Rules of the Italian Grammer, with a Dictionarie for the better understandyng of Boccace, Petrarcha, and Dante (1550), as the title suggests.

62 In addition to their rhetorical exemplarity, the sentimental romances – Grisel, Arnalte, and Cárcel – were well suited to language pedagogy due to their thematic and ideological contents. As previously mentioned, language instruction was equally concerned with the subject matter of the texts and students were trained to extract lessons from their exemplars. Grisel acknowledges as it subverts this practice of epitome, rendering impossible the extraction of a clear moral. 63 In addition to its rhetorical value and copious sententiae, Grisel’s structure, paratextual arrangement, and interpretative framework are heavily influenced by the academic debate.
