The cunning hidalgo Don Quixote of La Mancha
In a certain village of Lamanchsky, there lived one hidalgo, whose property was in a family spear, an ancient shield, a skinny nag and a greyhound dog. His name was not either Kehan, or Quesada, as if unknown, and it did not matter. He was about fifty years old, his body was lean, his face was thin and he read knightly novels every day, which made his mind completely frustrated, and he decided to become an itinerant knight. He polished his armor belonging to his ancestors, attached a cardboard visor to the shishak, gave his old nag the sonorous name Rosinant, and renamed himself Don Quixote of La Mancha. Since the wandering knight must necessarily be in love, the idalgo, upon reflection, chose himself a lady of the heart: Aldonsa Lorenzo and called her Dulcinea of Tobos, for she was from Toboso. Having dressed in his armor, Don Quixote set off, imagining himself the hero of a knightly novel. After a whole
day, he was tired and went to the inn, taking him for the castle. The odd appearance of the hidalgo and its lofty speeches were amused by everyone, but the good-natured host fed him and gave him drink, although it was not easy: Don Quixote never wanted to remove the helmet that prevented him from eating and drinking. Don Quixote asked the owner of the castle, ie, the inn, to devote him to knights, and before that he decided to spend the night in vigil over the weapon, putting it on the water-drinking trough. The owner asked if Don Quixote had money, but Don Quixote did not read about the money in any of the novels and took them with him. The owner explained to him that although such simple and necessary things as money or clean shirts are not mentioned in novels, this does not mean that the knights had neither one nor the other. At night, one driver wanted to give the mules a drink and removed Don Quixote’s armor from the water-trough trough, for which he was hit with a spear, so that the owner, who considered Don Quixote to be crazy, decided to give him knights as quickly as possible in order to get rid of such an
uncomfortable lodger. He assured him that the rite of initiation was a slap on the back and a sword on the back and after the departure of Don Quixote he uttered in his joys an equally grandiloquent, though not so extensive speech, than the newly-made knight.
Don Quixote turned home to stock up with money and shirts. On the way, he saw a hefty villager pounding a shepherd boy. The knight stood up for the cowgirl, and the villager promised him not to offend the boy and pay him everything he owed. Don Quixote was delighted with his good deeds, and the villager, as soon as the defender of the offended disappeared from his eyes, beat the shepherd to death. Counter merchants, whom Don Quixote made to recognize Dulcinea Tobosskaya as the most beautiful lady in the world, began to mock him, and when he rushed at them with a spear, they trashed him, so that he came home beaten and exhausted. The priest and barber, fellow villagers Don Quixote, with whom he often argued about knightly novels, decided to burn offensive books, from which he was injured in his mind. They looked through the library of Don Quixote and left almost nothing left of it, except for “Amadis of Gallic” and several other books. Don Quixote offered one farmer – Sancho Pansea – to become his squire and so much told him and promised that he agreed. And one night Don Quixote sat down on Rosinante, Sancho, who dreamed of becoming the governor of the island – on the donkey, and they secretly left the village. On the way they saw windmills, which Don Quixote took for giants. When he rushed to the mill with a spear, its wing turned and carried the spear into splinters, and Don Quixote was thrown to the ground.

At the inn where they stayed to spend the night, the maid began to make her way in the dark to the driver who had arranged for a date, but mistakenly stumbled upon Don Quixote, who decided that this was the daughter of the owner of the castle in love with him. There was a stir, a fight ensued, and Don Quixote, and especially the innocent Sancho Panse, got great. When Don Quixote, and after him and Sancho refused to pay for the wait, several people who happened there stole Sancho from the donkey and began to throw on the blanket, like a dog during a carnival.
When Don Quixote and Sancho drove on, the knight took a herd of sheep for the enemy’s army and began to destroy the enemies to the right and left, and only a hail of stones that shepherds brought down on him stopped him. Looking at the sad face of Don Quixote, Sancho came up with the nickname: The Knight of the Sorrowful Image. One night, Don Quixote and Sancho heard a sinister knock, but when it was dawning, it turned out that these were hammerheads. The knight was embarrassed, and his thirst for feats remained uninvited this time. The barber who, in the rain, put a copper basin on his head, Don Quixote took as a knight in the helmet of Mambrin, and since Don Quixote took an oath to take possession of this helmet, he took the pelvis from the barber and became very proud of his exploit. Then he freed the convicts who were led to the galleys, and demanded that they go to Dulcine and send her greetings from her faithful knight,
The Sierra Morena is one of the convicts – Ginés de Pasamonte – stole Sancho’s ass, and Don Quixote, Sancho promised to give three of the five donkeys who were with him on the estate. In the mountains they found a suitcase, where there was something from underwear and a pile of gold coins, and also a book with poems. Money Don Quixote gave Sancho, and took the book to himself. The owner of the suitcase was Cardenio, a half-mad young man who began telling Don Quixote the story of his unhappy love, but he did not give a proper explanation, because they had quarreled because Cardenault had been in a bad way about Queen Madasima. Don Quixote wrote a love letter to Dulcine and a note to his niece, where he asked to give it to “the bearer of the first donkey bills”, the three are asshole, and, having played off for decency, that is, taking off his pants and turning over several times, sent Sancho to take the letters. Left alone, Don Quixote indulged in repentance. He began to think about what better to imitate: the violent madness of Roland or the melancholic insanity of Amadis. Deciding that Amadis was closer to him, he began to write poems dedicated to the beautiful Dulcine. Sancho Panza on the way home met a priest and a barber – his fellow villagers, and they asked him to show them Don Quixote’s letter to Dulcine, but it turned out that the knight forgot to give him letters, and Sancho began to quote the letter by rote text so that instead of “dispassionate senor “he got a” trouble-free lord “, etc. The priest and barber began to devise a means to lure Don Quixote from Poor Stremnina where he indulged in repentance and was taken to his native village to heal him from insanity. They asked Sancho to convey Don Quixote, that Dulcinea told him to come to her at once. They assured Sancho that the whole thing would help Don Quixote become, if not an emperor, at least a king, and Sancho willingly agreed to help them, waiting for the favor. Sancho went to Don Quixote, and the priest and the barber remained waiting for him in the forest, but suddenly they heard poems – it was Cardenio, who told them his sad story from beginning to end: the perfidious friend of Fernando kidnapped his beloved Lucinda and married her. When Cardenio finished the story, a sad voice was heard and a beautiful girl appeared, disguised as a man’s dress. It was Dorothea, seduced by Fernando, who promised to marry her, but left her for Lucinda. Dorothea said that Lucinda, after her betrothal with Fernando, was about to commit suicide, because she considered herself the wife of Cardenio and gave her consent to the marriage with Fernando only at the insistence of the parents. Dorothea, learning that he did not marry Lucinda, had the hope of getting him back, but could not find him anywhere. Carnenio discovered Dorothea that he was the real husband of Lucinda, and they decided together to seek the return of “what belongs to them by right.” Cardenio promised Dorothea that if Fernando did not return to her, he would summon him to a duel.
Sancho told Don Quixote that Dulcinea was calling him to her, but he replied that he would not appear before her, until he accomplished feats, “the mercy of her worthy ones.” Dorothea volunteered to help lure Don Quixote out of the forest and, calling herself Princess of Miomikonskaya, said she had come from a distant country, to which the rumor of the glorious knight Don Quixote reached, in order to ask for his intercession. Don Quixote could not refuse the lady and went to Mikomikon. They met a traveler on a donkey – it was Hines de Pasamonte, a convict who was freed by Don Quixote and who stole the donkey from Sancho. Sancho took his donkey, and everyone congratulated him on this luck. At the source, they saw a boy – the same cowherd boy, whom Don Quixote recently stood for. The shepherd said that the intercession of the hidalgo came to him sideways,
Having reached the inn where Sancho was thrown on the blanket, the travelers stopped for the night. At night, out of the closet where Don Quixote was resting, the frightened Sancho Panza ran out: Don Quixote in a dream fought the enemies and waved his sword in all directions. Above his head hung wineskins of wine, and he, taking them for giants, pierced them and filled everything with wine, which Sancho took with a fright for blood. Another company came to the inn: a masked woman and several men. The curious priest tried to ask the servant about who these people were, but the servant himself did not know, he said only that the lady, judging by the clothes, was a nun or going to a monastery, but apparently not by her own will, and she sighed and cried all the way. It turned out that this is Lucinda, who decided to retire to the monastery, since she can not connect with her spouse Cardenio, but Fernando kidnapped her from there. When she saw Don Fernando, Dorothea threw herself at his feet and begged him to return to her. He listened to her pleas, Lusinda rejoiced, reunited with Cardenas, and only Sancho was upset, for he considered Dorothea Princess Mikomikonskaya and hoped that she would shower his lord with favors and he would also get something. Don Quixote believed that everything was settled due to the fact that he had defeated the giant, and when he was told about the perforated wineskin, he called it the enchantments of the evil wizard. The priest and barber told everyone about the insanity of Don Quixote, and Dorothea and Fernando decided not to leave him, but to take him to the village, which was no more than two days’ journey. Dorothea told Don Quixote that she owed her happiness to her, and she continued to play the part she had begun. A man and a Moorish woman came to the inn, The man was captain of the infantry, who was captured during the battle of Lepanto. A beautiful Mauritanian helped him escape and wanted to be baptized and become his wife. After them came the judge with his daughter, who turned out to be the brother of the captain and was inexpressibly happy that the captain, from whom there had been no news for a long time, was alive. The judge was not embarrassed by his deplorable appearance, for the captain was robbed en route by the French. At night, Dorothea heard the song of the mule driver and woke up the daughter of Judge Clara, so that the girl listened to her too, but it turned out that the singer was not a mule driver, but a disguised son of noble and wealthy parents named Louis, in love with Clara. She is not of very noble origin, so the lovers were afraid that his father would not consent to their marriage. A new group of horsemen drove up to the inn: it was Louis’s father who fitted out a chase for his son. Louis,
Another barber came to the inn, the same one with whom Don Quixote took the “Mambrin helmet”, and began to demand the return of his pelvis. A skirmish broke out, and the priest quietly gave him eight pellets to the pelvis to stop it. Meanwhile, one of the guards found out at the inn’s courtyard, Don Quixote, because he was wanted as a criminal for releasing convicts, and the priest had to convince the guards not to arrest Don Quixote because he was out of his mind. The priest and the barber made a sort of convenient cage out of the pads and conspired with one man who rode by on the oxen, that he would take Don Quixote to his native village. But then they released Don Quixote from the cage on parole, and he tried to take away from the worshipers a statue of a virgin maiden, considering her a noble lord, in need of protection. Finally Don Quixote arrived home, where the housekeeper and niece put him to bed and began to take care of him, and Sancho went to his wife, who promised that next time he would certainly return to the earl or the governor of the island, and not some seedy one, but the best best wishes.
After the housekeeper and niece spent the whole month nursing Don Quixote, the priest and barber decided to visit him. His speeches were reasonable, and they thought that his insanity had passed, but as soon as the conversation touched knightly, it became clear that Don Quixote was terminally ill. Sancho also visited Don Quixote and told him that the son of their neighbor, bachelor Samson Carrasco, came from Salamanca, who said that the story of Don Quixote, written by Sid Ahmet Beninhali, which describes all the adventures of him and Sancho Panza, was published. Don Quixote invited Samson Carrasco to him and asked him about the book. The bachelor listed all its advantages and disadvantages and said that it reads everything from small to large, especially the servants love it. Don Quixote and Sancho Panza decided to go on a new journey and a few days later secretly left the village. Samson conducted them and asked Don Quixote to report all his successes and failures. Don Quixote, on Samson’s advice, went to Zaragoza, where a knight tournament was to be held, but before he decided to call at Toboso to receive the blessing of Dulcinea. Arriving in Toboso, Don Quixote began to ask Sancho, where the palace of Dulcinea, but Sancho could not find him in the dark. He thought that Don Quixote knew this himself, but Don Quixote explained to him that he had never seen not only the palace of Dulcinea, but also her own, for he fell in love with her by rumors. Sancho replied that he had seen her and had brought back an answer to Don Quixote’s letter, too, according to rumors. So that the deception did not come up, Sancho tried as soon as possible to take his master from Toboso and persuaded him to wait in the forest, while he, Sancho, went to the city to talk with Dulcinea. He realized that since Don Quixote had never seen Dulcine, then it is possible to extradite any woman for her and, seeing three peasant women on donkeys, told Don Quixote that he was going to Dulcinea with the court ladies. Don Quixote and Sancho fell to one of the peasant women on their knees, the peasant woman rudely yelled at them. Don Quixote saw in this entire history the witchcraft of an evil sorcerer and was very saddened that instead of a beautiful lord he saw a peasant woman-ugly.
In the forest, Don Quixote and Sancho greeted Vandal Knight Mirror in love with Casilda, who boasted that he had defeated Don Quixote himself. Don Quixote was indignant and summoned the Knight of the Mirrors to a duel, under the conditions of which the defeated had to surrender at the mercy of the winner. Before the Knight of the Mirrors prepared for battle, as Don Quixote had already attacked him and nearly killed him, but Knight Mirror’s squire screamed that his master was none other than Samson Carrasco, who hoped in such a cunning way to bring Don Quixote home. But alas, Samson was defeated, and Don Quixote, confident that the evil wizards replaced the image of the Knight of the Mirrors by the appearance of Samson Carrasco, again moved along the road to Zaragoza. On the way, he was overtaken by Diego de Miranda, and two hidalgoe went together. They were met by a wagon carrying lions. Don Quixote demanded, so that a cage with a huge lion was opened, and was going to chop it into pieces. The terrified guard opened the cage, but the lion did not come out of it, but the fearless Don Quixote from now on began to call himself the Knight of the Lions. After seeing Don Diego, Don Quixote went on his way and arrived in the village, where they celebrated the wedding of Keteria the Beautiful and the Camacho the Rich. Before the wedding to Basia, Basilio Bedny, a neighbor of Keteria, who had been in love with her from childhood, approached Kytheria, and with all his eyes pierced his chest with a sword. He agreed to confess before death, only if the priest married him with Keteria and he would die with her husband. Everyone persuaded Keteria to take pity on the sufferer – because he was about to emit a spirit, and Kitteria, widowed, could marry Camacho. Kiteria gave Basilio a hand, but as soon as they were married, Basillo jumped to his feet alive and healthy – he had arranged all this to marry his beloved, and she seems to have been in cahoots with him. Camacho, on the basis of sound thought, thought it best not to be offended: why should he have a wife who loves another? Three days after spending time with the newlyweds, Don Quixote and Sancho moved on.
Don Quixote decided to go down to the cave of Montesinos. Sancho and the student conductor tied him with a rope, and he began to descend. When all one hundred brace ropes were unwound, they waited for half an hour and began to pull the rope, which was as easy as if it had no load, and only the last twenty braces to pull it was hard. When they extracted Don Quixote, his eyes were closed and they were only able to push him through. Don Quixote said that he saw many miracles in the cave, saw the heroes of the old romances of Montesinos and Durandart, and also bewitched by Dulcinea, who even asked him to borrow six reais. This time, his story seemed implausible even Sancho, who knew full well what kind of magic enchanted Dulcinea, but Don Quixote stood firmly on his. When they got to the inn, which Don Quixote did not consider as a lock against the custom, there appeared to Maes Pedro with the monkey-prophetess and the district committee. The monkey recognized Don Quixote and Sancho Pansu and told all about them, and when the performance began, Don Quixote, having pityed noble heroes, rushed with his sword at their pursuers and killed all the dolls. However, then he generously paid Pedro for the destroyed raki, so that he was not offended. In fact, it was Hines de Pasamonte, who was hiding from the authorities and engaged in the craft of a raieshnik – that’s why he knew everything about Don Quixote and Sancho, usually before asking about the villagers he asked around his inhabitants and “guessed” past. having pityed noble heroes, rushed with his sword at their pursuers and killed all the dolls.

One day, having left at sunset on a green meadow, Don Quixote saw a congestion of the people – that was the falconry of the Duke and the Duchess. The Duchess read a book about Don Quixote and was filled with respect for him. She and the Duke invited him to their castle and were received as an honored guest. They and their servants played a lot of jokes with Don Quixote and Sancho and did not cease to marvel at the wisdom and insanity of Don Quixote, as well as the ingenuity and simplicity of Sancho, who finally believed that Dulcinea was bewitched, although he himself acted as a sorcerer and himself has arranged. On the chariot to Don Quixote came the magician Merlin and announced that, in order to spoil Dulcinea, Sancho should voluntarily thresh himself three thousand three hundred times with a whip on the bare buttocks. Sancho resisted, but the duke promised him an island, and Sancho agreed, especially since the period of scourging was not limited and it was possible to do it gradually. The Countess Trifaldi arrived in the castle, she was also Gorevan, the duenna of the princess Metonomia. The wizard Zlosmrad drew the princess and her husband Trenbrenjo into the statues, and the duennes of Gorevana and the twelve other duenies began to grow beards. Only the gallant knight of Don Quixote could break them all. Zlosmrad promised to send a horse for Don Quixote, who quickly drives him and Sancho to the kingdom of Kandaya, where a valiant knight will fight Zlosmrad. Don Quixote, determined to rid the duen of beards, sat with his blindfold on the wooden horse and thought that they were flying through the air, while the servants of the duke were blowing them with air from the bellows. “Arriving” back to the duke’s garden, they found a message from Zlosmrad, where he wrote that Don Quixote had spoiled everyone by one thing, that this adventure ventured. Sancho was impatient to look at the faces of the duen without beards, but the entire dueny detachment had already disappeared. Sancho began to prepare to rule the promised island, and Don Quixote gave him so many sensible instructions that he struck the Duke and the Duchess – in everything that did not concern chivalry, he “showed a clear and broad mind.”
The Duke sent Sancho with a numerous retinue to the town, which was to descend the island, for Sancho did not know that the islands are only in the sea, and not on land. There he was solemnly handed the keys to the city and declared a lifelong governor of the island of Barataria. To begin with, he had to resolve the dispute between the peasant and the tailor. The peasant brought the tailor a cloth and asked if the hood would come out of it. Hearing what would come out, he asked if two hoods would come out, and when he found out that he would go out and two, he wanted to get three, then four and stopped at five. When he came to receive caps, they were just on his finger. He became angry and refused to pay the tailor for work and in addition began to demand back cloth or money for it. Sancho thought and pronounced a sentence: the tailor does not have to pay for the work, the peasant does not return the cloth, and caps to sacrifice prisoners. Then two old men appeared to Sancho, one of whom had long ago borrowed ten gold from another, and claimed that he had returned, while the lender had said that he had not received any money from them. Sancho forced the debtor to swear that he repaid the debt, and the latter, having given the lender to hold his staff for a minute, swore. Seeing this, Sancho guessed that the money was hidden in the staff, and returned them to the lender. A woman followed them, dragging the man who allegedly raped her by the hand. Sancho told the man to give the woman his wallet and let the woman go home. When she went out, Sancho told the man to catch up with her and take away her purse, but the woman resisted so much that he did not succeed. Sancho immediately realized that the woman had slandered the man: if she had shown half the fearlessness with which she protected the purse when she defended her honor, a man would not be able to overcome it. So Sancho returned the purse to the man, and drove the woman off the island. Everyone was amazed at the wisdom of Sancho and the justice of his sentences. When Sancho sat down at the table, he could not eat anything: he had to reach out for a dish, as Dr. Pedro Nesterpimo de Science ordered to remove it, saying that it was harmful to health. Sancho wrote a letter to his wife Teresa, to whom the duchess added a letter from herself and a thread of corals, and the page of the duke delivered letters and gifts to Teresa, disturbing the whole village. Teresa was delighted and wrote very reasonable answers, and also sent the duchess half of the choicest acorns and cheese.

The enemy attacked Barataria, and Sancho was supposed to defend the island with a weapon. He was brought two shields and tied one in front, and the other behind so tight that he could not move. As soon as he tried to move, he fell and remained lying, sandwiched between two shields. Around him ran, he heard screams, the sound of weapons, his sword was fiercely cut by his sword, and at last there were shouts: “Victory, the enemy is defeated!” Everyone began to congratulate Sancho on victory, but he, as soon as he was raised, saddled the donkey and went to Don Quixote, saying that ten days of governorship from him is enough that he is not born for battles, nor for wealth, and does not want to obey cheeky doctor, or anyone else. Don Quixote began to be burdened by the idle life that he led from the Duke, and together with Sancho left the castle. At the inn, where they stayed for the night, they met don Juan and Don Jerónimo, who read the anonymous second part of Don Quixote, which Don Quixote and Sancho Panza considered slanderous. It said that Don Quixote fell out of love with Dulcinea, while he loved her as before, there was confused the name of Sancho’s wife and was full of other incongruities. Learning that this book describes a tournament in Zaragoza with the participation of Don Quixote, abounding with all sorts of nonsense. Don Quixote decided not to go to Zaragoza, but to Barcelona, so that everyone could see that Don Quixote, depicted in the anonymous second part, is not the one described by Sid Ahmet Beninhali. while he loved her as before, there was confused the name of Sancho’s wife and was full of other incongruities.

In Barcelona, Don Quixote fought with the knight of the White Moon and was defeated. Knight of the White Moon, who was none other than Samson Carrasco, demanded that Don Quixote return to his village and did not leave the whole year from there, hoping that during this time the mind would return to him. On the way home, Don Quixote and Sancho had to visit the ducal castle again, for its owners were also obsessed with jokes and rallies, like Don Quixote on knightly novels. In the castle stood a hearse with the body of the maid Altisidora, supposedly dead from unrequited love for Don Quixote. To resurrect it, Sancho had to endure twenty-four clicks on his nose, twelve tweezers and six pinpricks. Sancho was very unhappy; for some reason, and in order to disenchant Dulcinea, and to revive Altisidoru, I had to suffer it was he who did not have to do with them. But everyone so persuaded him that he eventually agreed and suffered torture. Seeing how Altisidore came to life, Don Quixote began to rush Sancho with self-flagellation, in order to spoil Dulcinea. When he promised Sancho to pay generously for each blow, he readily began whipping himself, but quickly realizing that the night was standing and they were in the woods, began to flog the trees. At the same time he moaned so piteously that Don Quixote allowed him to interrupt and continue the scourging the next night. At the inn, they met Alvaro Tarfa, who was bred in the second part of the fake Don Quixote. Alvaro Tarfa admitted that he had never seen Don Quixote, or Sancho Panza, who stood before him, but he saw another Don Quixote and another Sancho Panza, at all not like them. Returning to his native village, Don Quixote decided to become a shepherd for a year and offered the priest, Bachelor and Sancho Panse follow his example. They approved of his idea and agreed to join him. Don Quixote had already begun to alter their names to a pastoral mood, but soon fell ill. Before his death, his mind cleared, and he called himself no longer Don Quixote, but Alonso Kihano. He cursed the knightly novels that obscured his mind, and died peacefully and in a Christian way, as no wandering knight died.
