Don Pablos

The Buscon is a true testament to the terms of an aristocratic in relation to structural changes of the seventeenth-century Spanish society. For Quevedo this new society is presented as a system in which the cunning and money replace the honor and moral values causing a crisis of identity and Spanish. The best example of this disorder is the convert, which is represented in different characters in the novel starting with the protagonist. The adventures of Don Pablos serve to demonstrate the survival techniques of the new society that is based on the industria.La political relationship between the writer and the power shines through in the work, demonstrating the author’s distrust towards the new socio-political conditions be glimpsed through pardons, commercial representation, financing. The adventurous life of an extremely corrupt world in which all pretend one’s own identity is far from an allusion to the constant camaleonizacion of the bourgeoisie of the seventeenth century, consisting mainly of converts. .
