TABLE OF CONTENTS


THE TRAGEDY OF JOHN BOWLE
      R. Merritt Cox (1939–1987): Pioneer of John Bowle Studies PDF  
            GEORGE GREENIA AND DANIEL EISENBERG 5–8
     
The Rev. John Bowle's Quixotic Woes Further Explored PDF  
      R. W. TRUMAN 9–43
                  Las Anotaciones de Bowle, que le han merecido elocuentes elogios de parte de los cervantistas, llegaron a ser objeto de un ataque feroz por parte de Giuseppe Baretti. Éste formó una alianza de rencor con John Cruickshanks, antiguo capitán en la Armada Británica y, más recientemente, entrañable amigo y dedicado colaborador de Bowle, por haber sufrido ambos por parte de él, y de una manera muy pública, una falta de sensibilidad y de buen juicio personal que tenía forzosamente que provocar un resentimiento profundo. Se rastrean aquí las causas y etapas del creciente enfrentamiento entre Bowle y los otros dos, aprovechándose, entre otros, de materiales de suma rareza existentes en la Biblioteca Bodleiana de Oxford. Todo culminó en el Tolondron de Baretti, libro lleno de desprecio y oprobio por la labor que había ocupado a Bowle durante tantos años. Un amigo de Bowle escribió que Tolondron le había causado una profunda pena, minándole la salud y abreviándole la vida, pero no antes de que perdiera la amistad de su colaborador más apreciado, John Dillon: otra obra de sus dos antagonistas.
     
      La edición del Quijote de John Bowle. Sus dos emisiones PDF
            DANIEL EISENBERG 45–84
                  In some reference works Bowle is said to have published two editions of Don Quixote in 1781: one in London and the other in Salisbury, one in four volumes and the other in six. A comparison of both states reveals that they are different emissions of a single edition, with changes only in the title pages and the opening leaves of Volume 1. Many copies have been bound with the separately-distributed title pages placed incorrectly. The same content can be found in two, three, four, and six-volume sets.
     
      The Grangerized Copy of John Bowle's Edition of Don Quixote in the Cushing Memorial Library, Texas A&M University PDF
      EDUARDO URBINA AND STEVEN ESCAR SMITH 85–118
                  El Proyecto Cervantes de la Cushing Memorial Library, Texas A&M University, ha comprado un ejemplar extrailustrado de la edición del Quijote (1781) de John Bowle: su comprador hizo encuadernar en su ejemplar quince ilustraciones, tomadas de fuentes diversas. Se describe el ejemplar y se analizan sus ilustraciones en relación con la iconografía textual del Quijote en el siglo dieciocho.
     
Correspondence PDF
      JOHN BOWLE 119–140
            Se publican cuatro cartas de Bowle a Juan Antonio Pellicer, cuatro cartas del librero Gabriel de Sancha con tres respuestas de Bowle, cuatro cartas a Gentleman's Magazine, una de las cuales cita una carta en castellano que probablemente es de Juan Sempere y Guarinos, y dos a señores ingleses al parecer interesados en Don Quijote.
     
Tolondron. Speeches to John Bowle about his Edition of Don Quixote, together with Some Account of Spanish Literature PDF

            JOSEPH BARETTI 141–274
            Ataque saladísimo y cruel a Bowle, negando la necesidad y utilidad de su edición comentada. “Cantad y bailad, / Bailad y cantad / De nuestro Mosén Bolo / Chichirichólo, / Chichirichón, / De cabo en rabo Tolondrón.”
                 
ARTICLES
      Teresa Panza's Character Zone and Discourse of Domesticity in Don Quixote PDF  
      LOUISE CIALLELLA 275–296
      Con el marco teórico del cuerpo carnivalesco y el discurso proverbial bajtinianos, se le enfoca a Teresa Panza como mujer trabajadora (re)productiva dentro de una economía agraria. La presencia a distancia de Teresa y su discurso de la domesticidad influyen especialmente en las reescrituras hechas por Sancho en la Segunda Parte de algunos de los proverbios usados por su mujer y en el diálogo entre Sancho y Don Quijote sobre el amor y el matrimonio. Entre el discurso dialógico de Sancho y Teresa y el ideal monológico de Don Quijote, el dialogismo cervantino crea espacios domésticos que metafóricamente están abiertos o cerrados, productivos o no productivos. Pero en último caso se quedan sin trazar definiciones restrictivas de lo masculino y lo femenino que aislarían al cuerpo carnivalesco del mundo vital, renovante y renaciente, con el que estaba todavía conectado.
     
      De nuevo sobre Cervantes y Heliodoro. La comunicación lingüística y algunas notas cronológicas PDF
      MÁXIMO BRIOSO SÁNCHEZ AND HÉCTOR BRIOSO SANTOS 297–341
      Cervantes' acquaintance with Heliodorus's work was no earlier than the conclusion of Don Quijote Part I. Composition of Persiles y Sigismunda cannot, therefore, have begun before 1605.
     
      Apuntes para una solución: La narración de Rutilio PDF  
      REYNALDO C. RIVA 343–355
      This article focuses on the marvelous adventure of Rutilio, the dance instructor whose tale involving lycanthropy presents, in Persiles y Sigismunda, a problem of verisimilitude. Tracing the etymology of his name to the color red, and reviewing the negative associations of red in humans, this article maintains that Rutilio is indeed a liar, a character whose puzzling story is a challenge Cervantes sets to his discerning readers.
                 
      Novelas ejemplares. Cuestiones ecdóticas (IV) PDF  
      CARLOS ROMERO MUÑOZ 357–377
      Difficult points in “La fuerza de la sangre,” “El celoso extremeño,” and “La ilustre fregona” are studied.
                 
      Cervantes in the German-Speaking Countries of the Twentieth Century PDF  
      GABRIELE ECKART 379–393
      Se examinan cinco adaptaciones de Don Quijote y “El coloquio de los perros,” en Alemania Occidental y Oriental, Austria y Suiza.

[BACK COVER]

MY DOG, THE TRUSTIEST OF HIS KIND,
WITH GRATITUDE INFLAMES MY MIND.
Gay

Let this perpetuate the Memory
Of an Animal, when living, deservedly esteemed
For his uncommon Sagacity, and Honesty,
Tho' of American Original
He was no Rebel;
But Faithful, constant and invariable
In his attachments.
His Anger sometimes got the better of that Discretion,
With which he was endow'd by nature;
But it was then only, when he found
Unjustifiable Opposition
To his delegated, legal Authority.
Possessed of every amiable Quality,
His Resentment for any Affront, or rough Treatment,
Soon subsided,
And he became at once
Placable, loving, and sincere.
Such was PERRO GRANDE;
Whose Misfortune it was to die by Poison.
Seduced by a false Brother, of an opposite currish Spirit,
After a day's confinement to avoid the danger,
He took, alas! the fatal Dose
That put a Period to his Existence,
To the general Regret of all who knew him,
March 6th. 1780.

To effect the Memorial,
His Skin, being tann'd for the Purpose,
Made the covers of this, and another Book.
 
Single printed sheet bound in the Epistolarium Bowleanum, in the University of Cape Town library. The other book referred to is the Bibliotheca Bowleana, in the same library.
