The striking, provocative and often far-fetched examples which Cervantes gives us in the more heroic of his novels provide the reader with a fascinating insight into his own response to the various forms of idealism to which the world pays lip-service every day. Human nature - and divine providence - are complex matters which do not lend themselves readily to clear-cut judgments.

These minuscule inaccuracies are balanced in the translation by the great care with which the songs sung to Constanza at the inn are recreated in verse. In accordance with Cervantes' will, he was buried in the neighbouring Convent of the Barefoot Trinitariansin central Madrid.

As a noun, the word ejemplar in Spanish can mean precisely that: To give him notice that the crucifix was in the hands of a certain monk would only serve to make known the person who deposited it in such keeping, but not to make the owner declare himself; for the latter might send another person for it, and furnish him with all the particulars by which he should identify it.

All rose to do her reverence, as if something from heaven had miraculously appeared before them; but gazing on her, entranced with admiration, not one of them was able to address a single word to her.

The anecdotal origins of the novela can clearly be seen in such stories as The Deceitful Marriage. Similarly, the translation limits the possibilities the corregidor of Murcia sees for his daughter, Preciosa, to marriage.
