In La lozana andaluza Francisco Delicado describes the life of the underworld of Rome during the first third of the sixteenth century. His story pays special attention to the community of Spanish Jews who moved progressively to Rome after the establishment of the Holy Office in Spain, in 1481.
It is a libertine story, since it starts from the author’s own experiences in the prostibulary neighborhoods of Rome. However, sexual allusions are metaphors of enormous expressive force:

“For my life, how well you beat iron as that blacksmith! In time and strong, which is steel! My life, no more, which is enough until another day, that I can not keep the fabric, and the rest would be to spend the good. I slept, I want to have lunch in getting up.”

The Andalusian lozana was discovered in the nineteenth century in the Imperial Library of Vienna. The edition did not include either the author or the printer, so for some time it was considered anonymous. It is ironic that in our times it is a classic text while the scientific work of Francisco Delicado today hardly arouses interest.
This work is considered part of the tradition of La Celestina (written about thirty years earlier by Fernando de Rojas). They share both the structure of dialogue, the subject matter and the picaresque approach typical of this genre. It is also worth emphasizing the frequent mentions of Rojas’ work in La Lozana throughout the story.
Marcelino Menéndez y Pelayo includes La lozana andaluza in his Origins of the novel and there he wrote:

“It is not a comedy, nor a novel either, but a rather cinematographic altarpiece of obscene figurines, which pass by making faces and goofs, in incoherent dialogues. Strictly speaking, it can be said that the Lozana is not written, but spoken, and this is what gives such a unique color to its style and constitutes its true originality.”
