libro An Early Bourgeois Literature In Golden Age Spain

Tracing the beginnings of a bourgeois literature in Golden Age Spain, Francisco Sanchez examines works by Baltasar Gracian (1601-1658), major picaresque texts–particularly Lazarillo de Tormes (1554) and Mateo Alemans Guzman de Alfarache (1599-1604)–and contemporary writings in which political economists and jurists look at new economic and political circumstances. Using the term repŁblica to describe an economic sphere of social life under the constrictions of both the monarchy and the privileges of the seignorial system, Sanchez investigates notions of person, culture, and life in these texts. He also analyzes the formation of a private sphere of social action and the emergence of a literary sphere to represent early bourgeois values and sensibilities. Sanchez argues that this literature represents culture as intellectual and verbal skills for the social and economic advancement (life) of a Christian but secularized person.
