The Life of Lazarillo de Tormes

(La Vida de Lazarillo de Tormes y de Sus Fortunas y Adversidades)

Translated by David Rowland and Introduction and Notes by Keith Whitlock

Liverpool University Press

Aris and Phillips Hispanic Classics

Lazarillo de Tormes (1554) is here offered facing the brilliant Tudor English translation of David Rowland of Anglesey (1586). Ostensibly a racy autobiography of a young rogue and his succession of masters, in reality it is a comical and caustic exposé of sixteenth century Spanish society, and especially the Church.
