SUMMARY

LAZARILLO'S GRAPHIC NOVEL ADAPTATION

will offer the reader a more complete experience of the adventures and misadventures of the ultimate picaresque anti-hero, including the history of the book that set a precedent in literary history. In this history, the need to understand the importance of Lazarillo’s censored version, known as Lazarillo castigado (1573), is most evident. Specially, when one considers that Juan López de Velasco’s censored edition was the only one readily available to readers in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Our graphic novel will reconstruct his editorial input in an interactive manner since the reader will be able to witness the reasons behind his decisions.


Our edition, Lazarillo de Tormes: A Graphic Novel will therefore contribute to fill a significant lacuna in the editorial and reception history of Lazarillo de Tormes.
