Entre las diversas posibilidades presentadas optamos por la publicación de los Diálogos (Linguae latinae exercitatio), y esto por varias razones: la primera, por ser la obra mas valenciana de Vives; en ella es donde afloran de forma emocionada los recuerdos infantiles ya lejanos: de forma especial para sus hermanas por el sufrimiento de tantos años, para sus amigos (Honorato Juan, la Marqueza de Zenete, Ángela Zabata), para su querida ciudad (las calles, las iglesias, las escuelas donde aprendió las primeras letras, la casa donde nació, el mercado de la fruta y verduras, los juegos de la pelota, etcétera); todo debe resultar emotivo para nuestro autor, ya en la madurez, enfermo y casi alas puertas de la muerte

Joan Lluís Vives (Valencia, 6 de marzo de 1492-Brujas, 6 de mayo de 1540). España. Nació en Valencia en una relevante familia de la comunidad judía que se convirtió al cristianismo para proteger su integridad y sus propiedades. Sin embargo, los Vives practicaban el judaísmo en una sinagoga que tenían en su casa hasta que fueron descubiertos en pleno oficio religioso y fueron condenados por la Inquisición. A los quince años, Juan Luis Vives empezó a estudiar en la Universidad de Valencia. El proceso contra su familia continuó y en 1509, su padre decidió enviarlo a París, donde estudió en la Sorbona y se graduó 1512 con el grado de doctor. Por entonces se fue a Brujas y allí recibió la noticia de que su padre había sido ejecutado en la hoguera. Deprimido, marchó a Inglaterra tras rechazar una oferta para enseñar en la Universidad de Alcalá de Henares. En el verano de 1523, fue elegido lector del Colegio de Corpus Christi por el cardenal Wosley en Inglaterra. Allí se hizo amigo de Tomás Moro y la reina Catalina de Aragón. Desde mayo de 1526 hasta abril de 1527 residió de nuevo en Brujas, donde supo de la condena a muerte de su amigo Tomás Moro por oponerse al divorcio del rey. Allí escribió su Tratado del socorro de los pobres, que propone por primera vez un servicio organizado de asistencia social. Vives dedicó sus últimos años a perfeccionar la cultura humanística de los duques de Mencia. En 1529 su salud era precaria: sufría dolores de cabeza y una úlcera estomacal. Murió el 6 de mayo de 1540 en su casa de Brujas de un cálculo biliar. Edición en la 1940, Buenos Aires, Espasa Calpe
