From this external (nonsubjective) viewpoint, the pícaro appears as an abject social element, a cancerous cell that threatens to corrupt the entire social body. Both Castro and Maravall coincide in linking the pícaro to positions of social abjection even as they focus on different aspects of the official mechanisms of exclusion. While Castro highlights the ethnic and religious aspects in his explanation of the marginalization of the pícaro, Maravall links the pícaro’s “desvinculación” to the socioeconomic implications of the modern redefinition of the poor.
My contention is that Cervantes’s interest in “the incomplete” goes well beyond the traditional obsession with the deceiving nature of appearances and the instability of the physical world, if only because he does not draw moralistic conclusions from the experience of uncertainty. Far from it, Cervantes focuses on “the incomplete” in order to rethink the nature of representation (literary and otherwise) and to challenge the reader to reflect on the arbitrariness of commonly held beliefs about the world—including well-established Christian notions.
After profiting from a series of frauds, the pícaro returns to Spain (Madrid) where he runs into trouble with the law.
