Edición de Florencio Sevilla Arroyo, catedrático de Filología Española en los angeles Universidad Autónoma de Madrid

«Contra cuerdos y contra locos está obligado cualquier caballero andante a volver por l. a. honra de las mujeres.»

Un éxito desde el momento de su publicación en dos partes (1605 y 1615), Don Quijote de los angeles Mancha es probablemente los angeles mayor novela jamás escrita. Cuenta l. a. historia de un hidalgo que, enloquecido por l. a. lectura excesiva, recorre España en busca de aventura, justicia y gloria. Las múltiples interpretaciones de los angeles obra reflejan su riqueza de significados y contenidos: una crítica de las novelas de caballerías, los angeles contraposición entre realismo e idealismo, o una sátira de las ilusiones cortesanas. Con las divertidas andanzas de su ingenioso protagonista, Cervantes retrató l. a. complejidad de lo humano y dio al arte literario su más alta expresión.

Esta edición incluye una introducción que contextualiza los angeles obra, un aparato de notas, una cronología y una bibliografía esencial, así como también varias propuestas de discusión y debate en torno a l. a. lectura. Está al cuidado de Florencio Sevilla Arroyo, catedrático de literatura española de l. a. Universidad Autónoma de Madrid.

Example text

The next day, Valjean secretly confesses to Marius that he is an escaped convict, and not Cosette舗s father. Marius, believing that Valjean舗s fortune was stolen, does not touch it. Thinking that Valjean killed Javert at the barricade, Marius only reluctantly allows him to see Cosette in the anteroom to his grandfather舗s house. Persona non grata to Marius, Valjean stops coming, stops eating, and wastes away. But Thȳnardier unwittingly serves as the instrument of Providence. He comes to extort money from Marius by threatening to reveal the 舠secret舡 that his father-in-law is an escaped convict who has recently killed a man (he unwittingly refers to Marius himself).

The Thȳnardiers have been starving Cosette, dressing her in rags, and forcing her to do hard labor, while sending Fantine exorbitant, fraudulent medical bills. She must turn to prostitution to support her daughter. At the same time, the Thȳnardier daughters Eponine and Azelma are pampered, creating a Cinderella-like situation. 舠Monsieur Madeleine舡 finally learns of this situation when Fantine has been unjustly accused of assault against a wealthy idler who had assaulted her first. He overrules Javert, who is blinded by social prejudice, and orders her release.

Behind the barricade, Javert has been unmasked as a police spy. Valjean asks permission to execute him, but secretly sets him free. As the barricade falls to the government troops, Marius collapses, wounded and unconscious. Valjean escapes through the sewers, carrying the young man through the foul muck on his shoulders for four miles. At the locked exit by the Seine, Valjean meets Thȳnardier, who has hidden there from Javert. Thȳnardier does not recognize Valjean. He thinks Valjean has killed Marius for his money, and demands all Valjean舗s cash in exchange for opening the gate with his skeleton key so that Valjean can escape.
