      Recovering the Hetairae: Prostitution in Don Quijote I
      CAROLYN A. NADEAU

4

      Enfocándose en las mujeres que buscan un matrimonio armonioso —Luscinda, Zoraida, y Dorotea— este ensayo analiza la relación entre las instituciones de la prostitución y el matrimonio; el valor social de la castidad; y el discurso femenino público en la obra El ingenioso hidalgo Don Quijote de la Mancha. Propongo una recuperación de la figura hetaira, usando el concepto renacentista de la imitación y aplicándola al prólogo de dicha obra, en el cual el supuesto amigo sugiere que se cite a Antonio de Guevara en cuanto al tratamiento de las “mujeres rameras.” El trabajo pone a la luz la manera en que Guevara reescribe las características de esta figura clásica tanto como el modo en que Cervantes las refigura en nuevos contextos y con nuevos propósitos.

      Autorrepresentación en Cervantes y el sentido del Coloquio de los perros
      JULIO RODRÍGUEZ LUIS

25

      As its title indicates, this article deals with two aspects of Cervantes's work. Its ultimate and probably unachieved goal is to link them. The first part focuses on Cervantes's peculiar way of indirectly addressing his reader with comments that underline his personal involvement with the subject of the narrative. This manera de narrar has no equivalent in 15th-, 16th-, or 17th-century Spanish literature, but reminds the critic of Montaigne's autobiographical style. The second part of the article concentrates on the double novella of Casamiento-Coloquio in order to 1) discuss its position within Cervantes's art; 2) explore its autobiographical content; and 3) explain the meaning of the profecía about the dogs' origin. To this author, the oracle, together with the last section of the Coloquio, articulates Cervantes's final and very personal statement about man's fate and the role of storytelling in it. The work of other critics who have written about the same subject is discussed as my own arguments touch upon what they wrote.

      “‘A quien se humilla . . .’”: ¿la homilía del Quijote?
      ROBERT L. HATHAWAY

59

      During that scene of rustic amity as knight and squire join the goatherds for an evening meal, Don Quixote pulls Sancho to the ground to eat with him in a spirit of companionship and equality, saying “‘a quien se humilla, Dios le ensalza.’” Citing Luke 14:11 at this point seems rather an inappropriate, an inopportune biblical injunction: why does it appear? Our thesis is that here Cervantes introduces a religious theme which will appear from time to time in Part One, and increasingly so in Part Two, culminating in Alonso Quijano's recognition that one must not put one's soul in danger. Indeed, at various moments in the first Quijote there may well be repetition of the lesson of humility; these pages address the question of our title by examining such possible reappearances, and in the process, reviewing the theme of religiosity in Cervantes's masterpiece.

      The Fortunes of Chivalry: António José da Silva's Vida do Grande D. Quixote de la Mancha e do Gordo Sancho Pança
      EDWARD H. FRIEDMAN

80

      En la Vida do Grande D. Quixote de la Mancha e do Gordo Sancho Pança (1733), el malogrado António José da Silva (“o Judeu”) crea una adaptación dramática del Quijote en la que destaca el espectáculo y la música sin sacrificar la visión satírica del original . Basada principalmente en la segunda parte del Quijote cervantino, la Vida llega a acentuar la audacia caballeresca de don Quijote y la creciente agresividad de Sancho, marcadores de un movimiento emblemático que sustituye el tema de la caballería por el de la justicia. En términos generales, la Vida de Silva se conforma con la recepción del Quijote en la España de principios del siglo XVIII. El dramaturgo portugués reconoce el tono burlesco de la novela, pero también dedica cierto espacio textual a los niveles simbólicos de la historia.
