If we disregard the 12 days which separate the calendars
used in a Catholic country, such as Spain, and a
Protestant country, such as England, in the 17th century
(the former accepted the Gregorian reform while the latter
continued to consider the Julian calendar as valid), the
deaths of Cervantes and Shakespeare would have
occurred on the same date, 23rd April 1616. Roger
Chartier uses this coincidence to experiment with three
kinds of interplay between fiction and historiography. The
first consists of imagining an encounter between the two
writers in the afterlife as, before he died, Cervantes had
expressed a desire to see his “merry friends” again “happy
in the next life”. The second essay, based on a narrative
by Anthony Burgess in which the possibility of the same
encounter born of the real event of the embassy sent by
the King of England to the Spanish court in 1605 (a
mission which could have included Shakespeare),
describes the contacts between the literary cultures of the
two countries in question, which were enhanced by the
dissemination of a text as extraordinary as Don Quixote
outside of Spain and even in England. Based on this
observation, the third exercise analyzes the authentic
phenomenon of the existence of a comedy – The History of
Cardenio – written by Shakespeare and Fletcher in 1613,
inspired by an episode of Don Quixote and now lost. Roger
Chartier skillfully studies the play’s characters and
develops what could be called “the real story of The
History of Cardenio”.
