The Lazarillo Phenomenon: Essays on the Adventures of a Classic Text (Hardcover)
The Lazarillo Phenomenon addresses a fundamental question in Hispanic Studies, why do we continue studying La Vida de Lazarillo de Tormes? As a classic literary text, Lazarillo's destiny depends on the relations it establishes over time with individuals and institutions responsible for literary, commercial, and ideological matters. This book brings together nine literary scholars from different critical approaches who address this question and reconsider the state of Lazarillo studies.
