Light cock, light wear. Solid hardcover. ; Spanish language. "The Spanish masterpiece Lazarillo de Tormes was followed by two continuations, one in 1555 and another in 1620. The former has been largely ignored or scorned by critics. In this study the author seeks to reassess the literary value of this continuation by placing it within the picaresque tradition. The little-known sequel of 1555 is in reality an important bridge between the original masterpiece and the work of 1620. As such it deserves a closer scrutiny, both as a work in its own right and as the "missing link" between two recognized works of literary value." ; American University Studies Series II, Romance Languages and Literature; Vol. 153; 171 pages.
