Summary
Originating in Spain, the picaresque novel abandoned idealized literary approaches and exposed the harshness of reality and human nature. Incorporating archival photographs, paintings, drawings, on-location footage, and voice-over narration, this program describes the characters, plots, style, and primary themes of the two seminal works of picaresque literature, the anonymous sixteenth century novel La vida de Lazarillo de Tormes and Mateo Alemán's Aventuras y vida de Guzmán de Alfarache. The presentation then discusses the evolution of the picaresque in Francisco de Quevedo's Historia de la vida del Buscón, Hans Jakob Christoph von Grimmelshausen's Simplicissimus, Daniel Defoe's Fortunes and misfortunes of the famous Moll Flanders, Voltaire's Candide, the novels of Tobias Smollett, Alain René Le Sage's Histoire de Gil Blas de Santillane, Henry Fielding's History of Tom Jones, Mark Twain's Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, the novels of Jack Kerouac, Camilo José Cela's Familia de Pascual Duarte, and Albert Camus's Etranger
