Written by Baltazar Gracián, El Criticón is made of three parts published in 1651, 1653, and 1657 respectively. It is a long allegorical novel with philosophical nuances. It evokes the many adventures of the characters as it satirizes society. Critilo, the "critical man" is the embodiment of disillusionment, and Andrenio, the "natural man" represents impulses.
