The Pleasant History of Lazarillo de Tormes

This is a modernised version of the translation by David Rowland, published in 1586, of one of the classics among translations into the English language. Edited with extensive notes by Gareth Alban Davies. Woodcuts and wood engravings by Frank Martin.

A Spanish classic, Lazarillo is the first and possibly the greatest of the picaresque novels. Among the first to define the genre, it may be considered a very early psychological novel, as well as an exploration of the novel's potential in narrative terms. It is in addition a critique of contemporary Spanish life, and particularly of religion and the Church's failure to promote adequate ethical models to follow.
