The Life of Lazarillo de Tormes was first published in Antwerp by Martín Nucio in 1554. It is significant as the first picaresque novel (rogue's tale, from the Spanish picaro for rogue). It tells the story in the first person of Lazarillo, a Salamancan boy of humble origins who becomes an expert petty thief. This edition comprises the original text plus a sequel of 1555, which continues the narrative. The Catholic Church and the Spanish aristocracy are subjects of the tale's satire, and the book was included on the Spanish Inquisition's List of Prohibited Books.

International social justice movements and the debates that ensued prompted us to start considering the contents of our website from a critical point of view. This has led us to acknowledge that most of the texts in our database are Western-centered. We have asked the authors of our content to be aware of the underlying racial and cultural bias in many scholarly sources, and to try to keep in mind multiple points of view while describing the manuscripts. We also recognize that this is yet a small, first step towards fighting inequality.

If you notice any trace of racist or unjust narratives in our communications, please help us be part of the change by letting us know.
