Publisher's Summary

"El conde Lucanor" is a book of stories written in the fourteenth century by Don Juan Manuel, the nephew of the King of Castile Alfonso X, nicknamed the Wise.

The work is a collection of stories of didactic character that all have the same structure: young Count Lucanor asks Patronio, his counselor, for advice about something he knows or is concerned about, related to the government of his lands. To explain his advice, Patronio tells a story as an example. All the stories end with a few verses that summarize the teaching of Patronius: the moral.

These stories are not original, they are based on popular stories already known in many countries, but Don Juan Manuel writes them in a very personal way. The purpose of this book is to be a manual for the education of the nobles.
