Transcript

  • 1. Rinconete y Cortadillo Critical analysis
  • 2. Away from reality • The plot in the novel follows a pattern that may represent some kind of refuge for the 2 main characters: a escape from ordinary society • Rinconete and Cortadillo seem rather distant from both the «cofradia» and the rest of the society
  • 3. Social criticism: satire • Social satire • Ridicule of Seville • Innkeeper’s wife: condones the boys’ behaviors for her own amusement (card trick) • The two boys also fail to denounce the confraternity of thieves and eventually become part of it
  • 4. The narrator • No character within Rinconete and Cortadillo actually narrates the text • BUT several appear as being observing the action. • Series of intermediaries who collide with the main characters throughout the story (conflict of interests)
  • 5. The main characters: satire • Manipulators of their reality and manipulators of the reader: “señor gentilhombre” and “señor caballero” • The types themselves —thieves, prostitutes, cutthroats— are real, but the words they utter are completely out of place • Monipodio’s house = microcosms that mirrors the real society • Monipodio acts as a judge and uses sophisticated language • Good social norms at Monipodio’s house = satire
  • 6. Personal experience • Maybe Cervantes is criticizing the city in which he lived and suffered for some time • But may also be exalting the rectitude of the rest of his homeland • Is Cervantes Rinconete?
  • 7. • La Sevilla que no vemos… http://www.galeon.com/juliodominguez/2004b/ acce1.html
