The Cant de Ramon (1300) is an autobiographical poem which invites the reader to support the author’s cause. It consists of 14 mono-rhymed stanzas, of six eight-syllable lines each. The poem begins with Ramon’s conversion, and covers the principal milestones of his career, from the foundation of Miramar, to the composition of the Art. The poem’s protagonist complains of the scant success of his undertaking and asks God to protect him and to grant him ‘intelligent companions’ who might assist him in carrying forward his project. The text includes certain highly emotive moments, as if Llull had found a new function for the troubadour poetry he had cultivated in his youth and which he had repudiated.
