dc.description.abstract This dissertation examines how lying is an intrinsic characteristic within the genre of the picaresque novel through an exhaustive examination of canonical texts Lazarillo de Tormes, Guzmán de Alfarache and El Buscón. This dissertation first defines Saint Augustine's definition of lying in the fourth century then follows variations of the definition disseminated in the courts of the Spanish kings in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The history of lying serves as a backdrop for understanding how lying is used in picaresque novels. It was in the fourth century that Saint Augustine laid down the foundation for how writers during the subsequent Golden Age would understand and work with lying as a broader category. He also associated lying with deception, dissembling and hypocrisy. Nevertheless, here lying is analyzed as a discourse independent of the ethical and moral framework formulated by Saint Augustine, and later, Alfonso X and Saint Tomas Aquinas. Although never defined by picaresque authors, all deployed lying as an integral part of the genre. The aim of this study is to display the intricate use of lying as one of the characteristics upon which the picaresque novel was founded and to articulate lying as a literary discourse. en_US
