9781331890409: Cervantes and Shakespeare (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Cervantes and Shakespeare

Were this so - the theory is not received with universal favour we should have to assume either that Shakespeare knew enough Spanish to pick out the plot of a story from a Spanish work, or that there existed in Shakespeare's time some French or English version, no longer known, of Eslava's dreary book. Whatever may be the fact with respect to Eslava, there is no doubt that Cervantes was within Shakespeare's reach. Thomas Shelton's translation of the First Part of Don Quixote was published in 1612. Did Shakespeare read it? It seems rather more than likely that he did. The best authorities are of opinion that Shakespeare, though he wrote less copiously for the stage after 1611 than heretofore, kept up his connexion with the theatre by furnishing outlines of plays which were filled in by collaborators like Fletcher. As instances of such collaboration The Famous History of the Life of King Henry the Eighth and - less confidently - The Two Noble Kinsmen are cited. To these may be added a third play entitled The History of Cardenio, probably identical with Cardenno performed 'before the Princess Elizabeth and the Elector Palatine shortly before May 20, 1613, and Cardenna, presented before the Duke of Savoye's Embassadour on the viij daye of June, 1613'. In the official account of sums paid by Lord Stanhope of Harrington, the 'Treasurer of his Majesties Chamber,' Cardenno (or Cardenna) is mentioned with other plays - among them Much Ado about Nothing, The Tempest, The Winters Tale, The First Part of King Henry the Fourth, Othello, and Julius Caesar, Then follows a silence of some forty years, and no more is heard of the mysterious Cardenno (or Cardenna) till September 9, 1653, under which date the books of the Stationers' Company record the payment of twenty shillings and sixpence by Mr. Moseley for entering his copies of forty-one plays: amongst these plays is mentioned 'The History of Cardenio, by Mr. Fletcher and Shakespe...

Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Cervantes and Shakespeare Don Quixote is now invested with a glory of which Cervantes never dreamed. At the time of its publication, and long afterwards, it was regarded simply as an amusing book. The author himself records that the average Spaniard clamoured for more Qu ixotades: let Don Quixote charge and let Sancho babble, and, no matter what it be about, we shall be content with that But from the outset there were always a few who read the book with other eyes and greater understanding. There were some, it appears, who would have been pleased had the author omitted some of the trouncings in?icted on Senor Don Quixote in various encounters . It was not till the romantic movement began to develop that the deeper wisdom of Cervantes s great book was tardily disengaged from the more visible humours of the story: this is well brought out by a French writer, M. J.-j. A. Bertrand, in Cervantes et le romantisme allemand, an interesting monograph which, by the irony of chance, was published during the summer of 1914s. Schlegel and the rest are entitled to due credit for their clear-sightedness. The trick of symbolic inter pretation has now been learned by many, and some of these prac titioners have obtained bizarre results. It is tolerably plain that the author of Don Quitote made sly allusions at times to persons and things that he disliked. But when we are invited to believe that his book is a caricature of some of the most glorious figures in his country s history, a satire on the army in which he served, and a covert attack on the church of which he was a devout member, our confidence in our guides diminishes.
