Abstract

The work aims to delve into the question related to the two versions of La tierra de Alvargonzález, still open in the debate about the work, focusing the issue of cainism more than the relationship between them. The comparative study shows that the two texts are not as equal as it seems. The meaning lies precisely in the connection between the two stories in the plot of Campos de Castilla, as an expression of two enemy peoples in the fratricidal fight between farmers and shepherds. They differ in point of view, time, ending and characters, shepherds in the romance and farmers in the legend told by a peasant who heard it from a shepherd in his childhood and reports the story adding comments that turn it into a new version.

El trabajo pretende ahondar en la cuestión de las dos versiones de La tierra de Alvargonzález, todavía abierta en el debate sobre la obra, centrado en el tema del cainismo más que en la relación entre ellas. El estudio comparativo demuestra que los dos textos no son tan iguales como parece. Su significado estriba precisamente en la conexión entre las dos historias en la trama de Campos de Castilla, como expresión de dos pueblos enemigos en la lucha mellizal entre agricultores y pastores. Difieren en el punto de vista, en el tiempo, en el final y en los personajes, pastores en el romance y labradores en la leyenda contada por un campesino que la oyó de un pastor cuando era niño y la refiere añadiendo comentarios que la convierten en una nueva versión.
