Description


Anonymously published in 1554, Lazarillo de Tormes remains a centerpiece of Renaissance literature and arguably the most popular example of the picaresque novel.


This Norton Critical Edition is based on Ilan Stavans’ new translation, which accurately captures the verve of the original.



  • The Norton Critical Edition also includes:

    An introduction and explanatory annotations by Ilan Stavans.

  • Contextual materials highlighting the novella’s strong anticlerical views and its affinities with Don Quixote in depictions of social hierarchy in Renaissance Spain, as well as excerpts from Juan de Luna’s Lazarillo sequel.

  • Eight critical studies, by David Gitlitz, Jane W. Albrecht, Louis C. Pérez, Edward H. Friedman, Howard Mancing, T. Anthony Perry, Gabriel H. Lovett, and E. Herman Hespelt.

  • A Selected Bibliography.
