dated 1592, and curiously characteristic of Cervantes. It is an agreement with one
Rodrigo Osorio, a manager, who was to accept six comedies at fifty ducats (about
6l.) apiece, not to be paid in any case unless it appeared on the representation that the
said comedy was one of the best that had ever been represented in Spain.


The test does not seem to have been ever applied; perhaps it was sufficiently apparent to Rodrigo Osorio that the comedies were not among the best that had ever been represented. Among the correspondence of Cervantes, there might have been found, no doubt, more than one letter like that we see in the “Rake’s Progress,” “Sir, I
have read your play, and it will not do.” (DON QUIXOTE Book PDF)

He was more successful in a literary contest at Saragossa in 1595 in honor of

the canonization of St. Jacinto, when his composition won the first prize, three silver spoons. The year before this he had been appointed a collector of revenues for

the kingdom of Granada. In order to remit the money, he had collected more con-
conveniently to the treasury, he entrusted it to a merchant, who failed and absconded;

and as the bankrupt’s assets were insufficient to cover the whole, he was sent to
prison at Seville in September 1597. The balance against him, however, was a
small one, about 26l., and on giving security for it he was released at the end of
the year.(DON QUIXOTE Book PDF)


It was as he journeyed from town to town collecting the king’s taxes, that he
noted down those bits of inn and wayside life and character that abound in the
pages of “Don Quixote:” the Benedictine monks with spectacles and sunshades,
mounted on their tall mules; the strollers in costume bound for the next village;
the barber with his basin on his head, on his way to bleed a patient; the recruit

with his breeches in his bundle, tramping along the road singing; the reapers gath-
ered in the venta gateway listening to “Felixmarte of Hircania” read out to them;

and those little Hogarthian touches that he so well knew how to bring in, the ox-
tail hanging up with the landlord’s comb stuck in it, the wine-skins at the bed-
head, and those notable examples of hostelry art, Helen going off in high spirits

on Paris’s arm, and Dido on the tower dropping tears as big as walnuts.


Nay, itmay well be that on those journeys into remote regions he came across now and
 then a specimen of the pauper gentleman, with his lean hack and his greyhound
and his books of chivalry, dreaming away his life in happy ignorance that the
world had changed since his great-grandfather’s old helmet was new. But it was
in Seville that he found out his true vocation, though he himself would not by any
means have admitted it to be so. It was there, in Triana, that he was first tempted
to try his hand at drawing from life, and first brought his humour into play in the
exquisite little sketch of “Rinconete y Cortadillo,” the germ, in more ways than
one, of “Don Quixote.”
