La vida del Buscon
Son of a thief and a witch. Pablos, the Buscón, enters the service of a rich young man, lives in Alcalá, in court and ends up traveling to America. Although his argument is still very similar to other works of the genre. The Buscón is not a picaresque novel to use. The mastery of his writing, the vivacity and sarcasm in the description of characters and situations, the intelligent cruelty of his anecdotes, make it a work that exceeds the limits of his genre, a picaresque novel that gives a twist to the archetype.
