A book by Ted McVay, an associate Professor Emeritus of Spanish in the College of Liberal Arts, was published in the award-winning Larumbe Series of Aragonese Classics by the University of Zaragoza (Spain) Press. The two-volume Obra poética de (Poetic Works of) Juan de Moncayo, is the first modern edition of the complete known works of the Zaragozan poet (1614-1657), a Marqués who served as a courtier to Phillip IV. Including the two books published during his lifetime, the edition offers, for the first time, a critical edition of Juan de Moncayo's epic poem "Atalanta." The edition also provides explanatory notes for many of the references that would not be known to modern readers. Other poems, letters and biographical material previously unknown to scholars are also included.
