The man, as a pilgrim, in a “vision guessed by the author, sleeping, from Jerusalem, and who saw in a beautiful grand mirror, those who lived there and those wanted to live there”. Reason, Nature, Grace of God, Penitence, Charity, Idleness, Anger and many other characters, whose name will make us think of their voice. Even other characters, such as “Gormandez” who introduces himself to the pilgrim, asking him: “As ty oydo dezir jamas de los epicurios, save que yo soy su madre”.

But, let's see the author's short epilogue: “Bien querria que por este sueño todos pelegrinos se adreçassen a mirar su camino, ca commo dize el refran mucho toma buena dotrina quien por mal de otro se castigua; la tribulaçion de los vnos es a las vezes adreço de buen camino a los otros y guya para venir a buen fin el qual es remuneraçion que Dios da a los que en este mundo le sirven y le plega aver dado a los que ya este camino passaron, y a nos que cada día llegamos mas perca”.

One has to take into account that the book has another reading, the one of the many xylographic printings which accompanies the text.
