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.

    " "Leído" por obligación (para clase, por supuesto). Las comillas son porque no me lo terminé, al fin y al cabo lo íbamos comentábamos en clase así que aunque los últimos capítulos no me los leyera me los sabía. Por cierto, el final me pareció horrible. "

    " Il Lazarillo è uno sfigato che più sfigato non esiste. Non avete idea dei guai che ha passato. Però è uno simpatico che la sa lunga. Non è dipeso da lui, quello è. Poi Anonymous è uno che ha scritto un sacco di bei libri e non stupitevi se pure questo lo è, assai, bello. "

    " From the back cover "the first picaresque novel ever written and the inspired precursor to works as various as "Vanity Fair" and "Huckleberry Finn." Banned by the Inquisition after publication in 1554...." "
