Sample text

Sabíanlo todos como cosa pública; mas era pobre ‘y es bien que peche,’ no era razón dármela” (2: 165). With his ironic remark, Guzmán targets the system of justice, which from the standpoint of the pícaro is clearly unfair to the poor. 43 Chapter Two Chapter 7 features some important reflections that are directed against the system of authority. In the following quote, for example, we can see that Guzmán exposes the hypocrisy of his social superiors with a conviction and decisiveness that reminds us of the pícaro’s social criticism in Lazarillo de Tormes: Un ladrón, ¿qué no hará por hurtar?

The word fortuna appears several times in Lazarillo: “fortuna fue con ellos parcial” (96), “nuestra fortuna” (104), “mi ruin fortuna” (157), “su adversa fortuna” (178), “en mi prosperidad y en la cumbre de toda buena fortuna” (205). While Scholastic Providence had imposed order among things, this “picaresque fortune” allows contingency and chaos to run the world of Lazarillo. To be sure, Scholastic thought had dealt with the notion of fortune; but the conception that appears in Lázaro’s discourse differs substantially from earlier formulations.

In this precise sense, picaresque marginality would imply “neither exclusion nor alienation […] Instead, it fostered dialogism” (xvii). In my re-examination of Mateo Alemán’s Guzmán de Alfarache, I connect this dialogism or center-periphery dialogics with the double image that, as we have seen, is characteristic of the anamorphic form. I would like to suggest that Alemán stages a confrontation between two different (and ultimately opposed) perspectives in his drive to expose the deceptions of the world and to warn individuals against a life of disorderly freedom.
