Giles University of Chicago The Libro de buen amor (LBA) is presented in its prologue as an interpretive journey: "Intelectum tibi dabo, et instruam te in via".1 E. Michael Gerii has recently found that this journey lies rooted in the Augustinian concept of inveniendo, by which the reader comes into, or rhetorically "discovers" the true meaning of the text in spite of its ambiguities ("Vías").
