Rinconete y Cortadillo es, seguramente, la mas popular de todas las Novelas ejemplares de Cervantes. En la andadura de estos dos muchachos desde la famosa Venta del Molinillo hasta el horrendo patio de Monipodio en Sevilla, Cervantes ha desplegado, con humor y sin renunciar a su fina ironía, una vision crítica y satirica de ciertos ambientes sociales en la Espana de la segunda mitad del siglo XVI. El mundo de la marginacion y del hampa sale aquí al paso en los pillos, golfos y delincuentes de esta divertida novela corta que, sin serlo, profundiza en algunos temas de la novela picaresca.Two young men who have just met decide to enjoy exciting adventures together, using other people's money. They arrive in Sevilla, where it seems nobody can steal without the consent of a man named Monipodio. What are they to do? Download and start listening now!

About the Author

Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra (1547–1616), novelist, playwright, and poet, was born in Spain of an ancient but impoverished family. After studying in Madrid, he became a soldier and was wounded in battle. He was taken by pirates in 1575, put in prison at Algiers, and was ransomed five years later. He spent the remainder of his life struggling to earn a livelihood from literature and humble government employment. His first attempt at fiction was a pastoral novel, La Galatea (1585), which was followed by his masterpiece, The Adventures of Don Quixote de la Mancha (1605).
