Overview

Alfonso de Valdes has long been recognized as one of the major proponents of Renaissance values in Spain, especially for his role in espousing the thinking of Erasmus, the Dutch humanist and philosopher. His Dialogo de Mercurio y Caron, a major work of both literary and historical significance, has never before been available in English. The dialogue provides a lively, satirical commentary on the thought, politics, religious arguments, and court intrigues of early sixteenth-century Spain. It is a mark of Valdes's talent that he was able not only to describe the period, a time of great turmoil and complexity, but to do so in a humorous and critical manner. Professor Ricapito has brilliantly rendered the lively human quality in his fine translation. A must for all students of Spain and the Reformation.
