El conde Lucanor or Libro de los enxiemplos del conde Lucanor et de Patronio (between 1325 and 1335), is a book of stories by Don Juan Manuel. They are based on Eastern sources (especially the apologists of the Sendebar and the Calila e Dimna) and Christian (the Disciplina clericalis of Pedro Alfonso).
Among the stories stand out

  • the magical dream of Don Illán, which inspired a comedy to Juan Ruiz de Alarcón;
  • that of the weavers who made a cloth invisible to the king, used by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra in El retablo de las maravillas;
  • and that of the mancebo married to a brave woman, which inspired The Taming of the Shrew, by William Shakespeare.

In order for his writings to reach as wide an audience as possible, the structure of the work is always the same: Count Lucanor whenever he needs it proposes to his wise advisor Patronio a moral or social problem.
This, in order to serve as a guide to the count, solves it through a story, fable or example. The moral always appears at the end in two short verses, which are called distichs.
The author was also aware that the texts had to be enjoyable, far from the complex treatises of the mester de clerecía or classical philosophy that had been increasingly confined in monastic libraries.
Count Lucanor presents a great variety of themes; Salvation of the soul, vanity, hypocrisy, justice, honor, wealth and friendship are some. All are exhibited for didactic purposes.
