Life

Little is known of him save that he was of Jewish origin. The Coplas de Migo Revulgo, the Coplas del Provincial, and the first act of La Celestina have been ascribed to him on insufficient grounds.

He is undoubtedly the author of the Diálogo entre el amor y un viejo, a striking dramatic poem first printed in the Cancionero general of 1511, and of a burlesque epithalamium written in 1472 or later. He abjured Judaism about the year 1497, and is believed to have died shortly afterwards.
