Lacrimae rerum: San Isidoro de León y la memoria del padre

Actualizado: 2 jun 2022

co trasfondo da loita entre dous irmans polo Reino de Galicia - García, Rex Gallecie, e Afonso VI iniciador das obras da Catedral de Santiago, pazo espiritual da memoria do Reino

Mais unha reflexión sobre a épica da historia en diálogo con Esquilo, Virxilio e Shakespeare (video ao remate do blog) e a análise dun dos "cadros" máis misteriosos do noso patrimonio


Se Shakespeare teatralizase a historia da Galiza...

The "uncrowning" of Richard II / García de Galiza

Your cares set up do not pluck my cares down. My care is loss of care, by old care done; Your care is gain of care, by new care won: The cares I give I have, though given away; They tend the crown, yet still with me they stay.


Mine eyes are full of tears, I cannot see: And yet salt water blinds them not so much But they can see a sort of traitors here. Nay, if I turn mine eyes upon myself, I find myself a traitor with the rest; For I have given here my soul's consent To undeck the pompous body of a king; Made glory base and sovereignty a slave, Proud majesty a subject, state a peasant.


Say that again. The shadow of my sorrow! ha! let's see: 'Tis very true, my grief lies all within; And these external manners of laments Are merely shadows to the unseen grief That swells with silence in the tortured soul; There lies the substance: and I thank thee, king, For thy great bounty, that not only givest Me cause to wail but teachest me the way How to lament the cause. I'll beg one boon, And then be gone and trouble you no more. Shall I obtain it?
