Don Quixotte, the Death of Romance
We’ve had a lot of adventures, Sancho. And I’ve won. But even so I feel sad.
Sovereign and exalted Lady,
The pierced by the point of absence, the wounded to the heart’s core, sends thee, sweetest Dulcinea del Toboso, the health that he himself enjoys not.
If thy beauty despises me, if thy worth is not for me, if thy scorn is my affliction, though I be sufficiently long–suffering, hardly shall I endure this anxiety, which, besides being oppressive, is protracted.
My good squire Sancho will relate to thee in full, fair ingrate, dear enemy, the condition to which I am reduced on thy account: if it be thy pleasure to give me relief, I am thine.
If not, do as may be pleasing to thee; for by ending my life I shall satisfy thy cruelty and my desire.
Thine till death
