This volume is a contemporary and up-to-date reflection on medieval didactic prose, bringing together various perspectives and approaches. The four studies that make up this Notebook demonstrate the difficulty of fixing writing models for this genre of discourse, its essential mutability and the impossibility of closing a debate. Both the comprehensive article dedicated to the heterogeneity and formal complexity of the prose of Don Juan Manuel-versifier, and the original analyses proposed for the Corte Enperial, o Orto do Esposo or even the presentation of a project for a digital edition of the Leal Conselheiro, are unequivocal signs of modernity underlying the rhetorical and intertextual games that explain the complexity of Medieval didactic prose and the results of the research which to date are associated to it.
