Example text

Hence, the protagonist of Lazarillo takes good note of the warnings of his first master: “Verdad dice éste, que me cumple avivar el ojo y avisar, pues solo soy, y pensar como me sepa valer” (109–10). 6 Lázaro is well aware of the importance of the possession of riches in this journey of self-making. There are constant references to money in Lazarillo as a means to achieve, not only food, shelter, and other material goods, but also social recognition. The increase in the use of money during the fifteenth and early sixteenth centuries signals the presence of a new system of relations according to which exchange value replaces the traditional notion of intrinsic, essential worth.

Cada uno procura de valer más. El señor quiere adelantar sus estados, el caballero su mayorazgo, el mercader su trato, el oficial su oficio y no todas veces con la limpieza que fuere lícito. Que algunas acontece, por meterse hasta los codos en la ganancia, zabullirse hasta los ojos, no quiero yo decir en el infierno; dilo tú, que tienes mayor atrevimiento. En resolución, todo el mundo es la Rochela en este caso: cada cual vive para sí, quien pilla, pilla, y sólo pagan los desdichados como tú. Si fueras ladrón de marca mayor, destos de a trecientos, de a cuatrocientos mil ducados, que pudieras comprar favor y justicia, pasaras como ellos; mas los desdichados que ni saben tratos ni toman rentas ni receptorias ni saben alzarse a su mano con mucho, concertándose después con poco, pagado en tercios, tarde, mal y nunca, estos bellacos vayan a galeras, ahórquenlos, no por ladrones, que ya por eso no ahorcan, sino por malos oficiales de su oficio.

One could say that the narrative is the literal production of the sign of the relation between the two. 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.
