BENJAMIN LIU, The subject of this polyglot book is ostensibly the Cantigas d'escarnho e maldizer (Songs of Mockery and Insult, according to the author's translation). It would be unjust, nevertheless, to accept the text's title without questioning it. This book opens so many doors that, in fact, any title would have fallen short.

The second part of the corrida consists of the work of the picadors, bearing lances and mounted on horses (padded in compliance with a ruling passed in 1930 and therefore rarely injured).

Heinz der Kellner’s 15th-century-poem Konni is built on an old stereotype: Konni is a peasant who is clever but crude. He’s the only person in the kingdom who can outwit its haughty princess – but he does it with a toilet joke. Konni has been besting the princess in a verbal duel, and in her frustration she claims his material isn’t good enough. Actually, she calls it utter shit.

Medieval Joke Poetry examines the intersection of jokes, laughter, insults, and poetry in a collection of thirteenth- and fourteenth-century medieval Iberian songs known as the Cantigas d'escarnho e de mal dizer. Written in Galician-Portuguese, these 'songs of mockery and insult' make up a heterogeneous corpus whose witticisms are by turns funny and vicious, crudely obscene and exquisitely sophisticated, playful and deadly serious. Liu's readings disentangle the complex verbal strategies of these joke-poems in order to reveal the latent cultural tensions that underlie their humor. Wordplay, double meanings, and deliberate combinations of incongruous ideas are intended to elicit laughter, even as they gesture toward the rupture of accepted cultural categories in such manifestly hybrid paradoxes as an "Albardan cavaleiro" (noble buffoon), a "mouro cruzado" (Crusader Moor), or a male "dona salvage" (wild woman). Liu shows how these jokes operate in such varied cultural contexts as the arts of augury and divination, pilgrimage, prostitution, interfaith sexuality, and medical malpractice.
