EXAMPLES
El labrador, que vio sobre sí aquella figura llena de armas blandiendo la lanza sobre su rostro, túvose por muerto, y con buenas palabras respondió:
The farmer, seeing before him this figure in full armour brandishing a lance over his head, gave himself up for dead, and made answer meekly,
-Descortés caballero, mal parece tomaros con quien defender no se puede; subid sobre vuestro caballo y tomad vuestra lanza -que también tenía una lanza arrimada a la encima adonde estaba arrendada la yegua-, que yo os haré conocer ser de cobardes lo que estáis haciendo.
"Discourteous knight, it ill becomes you to assail one who cannot defend himself; mount your steed and take your lance" (for there was a lance leaning against the oak to which the mare was tied), "and I will make you know that you are behaving as a coward."
Fue luego sobre él, y, poniéndole la lanza sobre la visera, le dijo: -Vencido sois, caballero, y aun muerto, si no confesáis las condiciones de nuestro desafío.
He sprang upon him at once, and placing the lance over his visor said to him, "You are vanquished, sir knight, nay dead unless you admit the conditions of our defiance."
En un lugar de la Mancha, de cuyo nombre no quiero acordarme, no ha mucho tiempo que vivía un hidalgo de los de lanza en astillero, adarga antigua, rocín flaco y galgo corredor.
In a village of La Mancha, the name of which I have no desire to call to mind, there lived not long since one of those gentlemen that keep a lance in the lance-rack, an old buckler, a lean hack, and a greyhound for coursing.
En esto, sucedió acaso que un porquero que andaba recogiendo de unos rastrojos una manada de puercos -que, sin perdón, así se llaman- tocó un cuerno, a cuya señal ellos se recogen, y al instante se le representó a don Quijote lo que deseaba, que era que algún enano hacía señal de su venida; y así, con estraño contento, llegó a la venta y a las damas, las cuales, como vieron venir un hombre de aquella suerte, armado y con lanza y adarga, llenas de miedo, se iban a entrar en la venta; pero don Quijote, coligiendo por su huida su miedo, alzándose la visera de papelón y descubriendo su seco y polvoroso rostro, con gentil talante y voz reposada, les dijo:
At this moment it so happened that a swineherd who was going through the stubbles collecting a drove of pigs (for, without any apology, that is what they are called) gave a blast of his horn to bring them together, and forthwith it seemed to Don Quixote to be what he was expecting, the signal of some dwarf announcing his arrival; and so with prodigious satisfaction he rode up to the inn and to the ladies, who, seeing a man of this sort approaching in full armour and with lance and buckler, were turning in dismay into the inn, when Don Quixote, guessing their fear by their flight, raising his pasteboard visor, disclosed his dry dusty visage, and with courteous bearing and gentle voice addressed them,
Don Quijote y Sancho se levantaron maltrechos, y, mirando a todas partes, quedaron atónitos de verse en el mesmo jardín de donde habían partido y de ver tendido por tierra tanto número de gente; y creció más su admiración cuando a un lado del jardín vieron hincada una gran lanza en el suelo y pendiente della y de dos cordones de seda verde un pergamino liso y blanco, en el cual, con grandes letras de oro, estaba escrito lo siguiente:
Don Quixote and Sancho got up rather shaken, and, looking about them, were filled with amazement at finding themselves in the same garden from which they had started, and seeing such a number of people stretched on the ground; and their astonishment was increased when at one side of the garden they perceived a tall lance planted in the ground, and hanging from it by two cords of green silk a smooth white parchment on which there was the following inscription in large gold letters:
