This paper analyzes the temporal narrative structure of Jerónimo de Alcalá Yáñez's picaresque novel Alonso, mozo de muchos amos, published in two parts in 1624 and 1626, which unfolds on two levels: First that of the frame or dialogued novel, in which Alonso talks in the present with a different interlocutor in each part of the text; secondly that of the autobiographical novel, corresponding to the protagonist's past and contained in his interventions in the dialogue. On this level a series of chronological data can be traced that allow us to calculate the advanced age that the rogue was at the end of the narration.
