Alonso, mozo de muchos amos (1624-1626), by Jerónimo de Alcalá Yáñez, is a picaresque epigone of great interest to understand the process of evolution that this genre followed in Spain. The wide variety of cuentecillos and anecdotes that it presents constitutes one of its most accomplished attributes. The narrative dimension, introduced by the author to serve the moralizing zeal of the protagonist, builds a rich framework that allows us to know better the tradition in which Alcalá Yáñez is inspired. In this work my aim is to clear the unknown issues related to the sources of some of these cuentecillos.
