Sancho Panza en Inglaterra: Sancho at Court de James Ayres y Barataria de Frederick Pilon

Bulletin of Hispanic Studies (2005), 82, (5), 551–568.

Abstract

Bien que Don Quijote sirviese de modelo para numerosos personajes de la novela y el teatro británicos, la fama y el impacto que Sancho Panza tuvo en las letras inglesas no fueron, en absoluto, exiguos. Evidencia de ello son las adaptaciones teatrales en lengua inglesa tituladas Sancho at Court y Barataria, ambas publicadas en el siglo XVIII, que recrean las aventuras de Sancho Panza como gobernador de la ínsula Barataria. Este artículo ofrece el primer análisis crítico de estas dos obras, mediante el cual se trata especialmente de cifrar su relación con el Quijote, su correspondencia con las recepciones contemporáneas de la novela cervantina y presentarlas, en última instancia, como frutos de la aclamación que obtuvo la obra de Cervantes en Gran Bretaña durante el siglo XVIII.

Don Quixote inspired many British authors — novelists and playwrights alike — who created countless Cervantean characters. Likewise, Sancho Pança was well-known among British readers, and his impact on English letters was considerable. Sancho at Court and Barataria are two eighteenth-century English plays which tell of Sancho Pança's adventures during the course of his governorship of the island of Barataria. This article is the first attempt to critique these two plays, hitherto ignored by literary research. The discussion of both plays acknowledges Sancho at Court and Barataria to be two examples of Cervantes's success in eighteenth-century Britain, but also seeks to determine to what extent they conform to Don Quijote and the eighteenth-century British perception of Cervantes's oeuvre.
