As was the custom of the time this can be seen more of a court poem dealing with the relationship between the Cid, and the then king, Alfonso VI. This translation rhymes, and is thus very easy to read, and it is probably Spain's greatest epic poem of the age.
If you don't normally read Medieval works this one may appeal to you; as I have pointed out this translation does rhyme, and it is still a good read. Probably not on the top of your books to read list you may just find yourself absorbed in this, and enjoy it. I have been meaning to get a copy of this for sometime, so I was more than pleased to find this one, that is a give away. The poem is all here and properly formatted, the only problem as such is that the introduction isn't formatted properly, and is itself set out in verse format, however it is still readable.
