The Book of the Knight and the Squire (1326-1327) is a work of medieval Spanish literature, written in prose by Don Juan Manuel. Unfortunately, much of its content has been lost. It originally consisted of a prologue and fifty-one chapters, of which have been lost from the end of the third to the sixteenth.
The book tells the story of a squire mancebo, aspiring courtier who has to go to a court convened by the king. During the plot he receives the most diverse teachings from a hermit who has been a knight.
Juan Manuel bases the narrative framework of his work on Ramon Llull’s Llibre de l’orde de cavalleria , which is a theoretical treatise on chivalry framed in a fictional story.
The Book of the Knight and the Squire belongs to the type of didactic-moralizing literature of medieval times. Through his writings, Don Juan Manuel intends to moralize and teach the reader about various matters in an entertaining way, that is, through what has been commonly called “teaching by delighting”. With this work begins a second stage in his literary career where didacticism, expressed through a dialogue structure, is the most remarkable characteristic.
The literary project and, in some way, the difficult bet of Juan Manuel in the Book of the knight and the squire, and in the following works is to transmit knowledge and science, resorting to narration before a courtly and, for more signs, noble public.
