Summary

Story motifs from all of the thirty major picaresque novels of Spain’s Golden Age present the picaro as a nomadic rogue who survived by cleverness and deception. Though his tricks constitute the main interest in the novels, the picaro’s satirical comments give a wealth of information on the social, political and religious background of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries in Spain.

This motif-index, based on the classification system of Stith Thompson, includes an informative and analytical Introduction and a Summary which precisely categorizes the appearance of various motifs.
