The Book of the life and customs of Don Alonso Enríquez de Guzmán, noble knight disrupted has first-hand testimonies of the vicissitudes of the Conquest of Peru and the wars between the Pizarro brothers and Diego de Almagro. Alonso Enríquez de Guzmán traveled to America at a very young age. Upon his return to Spain, the political landscape cleared and his status improved with the money brought from the Indies, Alonso Enríquez de Guzmán retired from political life and wrote this autobiographical work. This narrative anticipates some of the ingredients of the Spanish picaresque of the Golden Age.

And two days onwards, placed with much rejoicing and solemnity, pomp and authority, came the sad news as the princess her mother our lady was dead. And the fabrics of gold and silks of color that I for this and many to play reeds that three days before were to come out, became mourning and fulfilled the saying that “There is no laughter without weeping” in this sad life and pleasure without sadness, until we go to the other that is endless and all glory, so I swear to go to it. And the party ceased and not the sign to put here for many reasons. Which is the following:
