Spanish Picaresque Fiction: A New Literary History

Front Cover
Cornell University Press, 1993 - Literary Criticism - 337 pages
Exiled to the margins of society and surviving by his wits in the course of his wanderings, the picaro marks a sharp contrast to the high-born characters on whom previous Spanish literature had focused. In this illuminating book, Peter N. Dunn offers a fresh view of the gamut of sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Spanish picaresque fiction.
