El Cantar de mio cid by Carmelo Valero Planas( Visual )

10 editions published between 1980 and 2010 in Spanish and English and held by 553 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"El Cid is unique among the world's great epics because it was composed so close to the actual historical events (a mere 40 years after the death of Rodrigo Diaz de Vivar, el Cid himself) that we can distinguish between man and legend. Meticulous attention to historical detail, spectacular cinematic production values, and the swashbuckling plot itself make this medieval epic superbly entertaining as well as educational. An RTVE Production. (Spanish with English subtitles, 60 minutes)."

4 editions published in 2006 in Spanish and English and held by 504 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over half a century has passed since famed poet-playwright Federico Garcia Lorca was killed in Granada at the beginning of the Spanish Civil War.
