The core purpose of this monograph has been to investigate the reconciliatory thought of a 13th century Persian poet named Sa’di Shirazi. Although Sa’di’s prose poetry is not set out in the systematic form of a comprehensive political theory, profound insights were extracted from it that convey a powerful message regarding the necessities of harmonious behaviour as a precondition for a healthy society, and the dangers of not adhering to it.

This songbook contains almost 7,000 traditional Galician poems and, only for this, it can be said that this collection of traditional poetry is one of the most important of the 20th century. The poems were compiled by Cipriano Torre Enciso during the second half of that century. They were copied at family parties, traditional markets, traditional gatherings, songbooks, etc. Preliminary studies prepared by Drs. Xose Manuel Sanchez Rei and Catalina T. Castillion develop literary, cultural, linguistic and historical characteristics of all these traditional texts. Both works serve to highlight the enormous value of those poems.
