Publisher's Summary

La vida de un picaro espanol. La vida de Lazarillo de Tormes y de sus fortunas y adversidades es el titulo completo de la novela anonima que al ser publicada en 1554, creo todo un genero, el de la novela picaresca. Es un relato agil, hecho en primera persona por el protagonista, nacido a la orilla de Tormes, el rio que pasa por Salamanca, y que desde su primera infancia lleva una penosa existencia de vagabundeo y de servidumbre, en especial para un ciego, del cual toma el apodo de lazarillo. Tiene que defenderse con su ingenio y por eso la obra presenta una serie de cuadros, de fondo satirico, pero acertados como pocos y que en conjunto forman un relato entretenido, con un fondo un tanto inmoral, pero que ha fascinado a generaciones de lectores, que encuentran en esas aventuras una amena lectura, llena de humor y de ironia.

The Life of Lazarillo of Tormes: his fortunes and misfortunes as told by himself is the complete title of the anonymous novel that, when it was published in 1554, created the typical Spanish genre of picaresque novel.
