Ebook con un sumario dinámico y detallado: La vida del Buscón es una novela picaresca en castellano, escrita por Francisco de Quevedo. La sátira se exagera en esta obra hasta el punto de ser una caricatura sangrienta. Quevedo no describe lugares y personajes de forma realista, sino grotesca, hasta obtener una visión esperpéntica.
Excerpt from La Vida del Buscón Yo, feñor, foy de Segouia. Mi padre fe llamó Clemente Pablo, natural del mifmo pueblo (dios le tenga en el Cielo).
Quevedo was born to a family of wealth and distinction. The bulk of his satirical writings were aimed at specific abuses of the day and are no longer of interest, but he is remembered for his picaresque novel La vida del buscón (1626; The Life of a Scoundrel ), which describes the adventures of Paul the Sharper in a grotesquely distorted world of thieves, connivers, and impostors.
