Corchuelo’s Argument with a Student Swordsmen: Corchuelo tells his friend, the student swordsmen that if he “didn’t take more pride in how [he] wags [his] foils than Free Ebook Download in how [he] wags his tongue, he would have been top of the class list instead of [at its] bottom.” In Corchuelo’s view, the student swordsman’s skill in fencing is a waste of time. To “prove it to [him] in practice, [Corchuelo tells Quixotic Novels him to draw out his foils since they have found] a convenient spot to duel. Then Corchuelo brags that with his “steady hand and strong arm, backed by [his sturdy] spirit, [he] will make [his friend] confess that [he is] not mistaken.” Thus, Corchuelo orders the other student to “get off [his] donkey and try out all [his] precious steps and circles and angles and science, because [he is] going to make [him] see stars at midday with [his] Quixotic Novels modern, uncouth swordsmanship, [because there] isn’t a man born yet who can make [him] turn [his] back or who [he] can’t force to give ground.” In reply, the fencing master says “as to whether he turns his back or not [is] no affair of [his] although it might well be that [his] grave will open up to [him] at the very spot where [he] first places his foot, killed by the science [he] so despises.” Provoked into battle, Corchuelo “leaps from his Quixotic Novels donkey, snatches one of the foils that the [student] MA carries, [and] slashes, [and] lunges [a series of] down-strokes, back-strokes and flicks [that come] thicker than raw liver, more unremitting than hail.” Rushing in “like an angry lion, [Corchuelo is] met by a tickle [to his] teeth by a button on the end of the MA’s foil that stops him in the midst of his fury [and] makes him kiss it Quixotic Novels as if it is some holy relic.” In Quixotic Writers the end, “the MA cuts [Corchuelo’s] skirt to ribbons, gives every button on his cassock a twirl, knocks his hat off twice, and, so exasperates him that in his vexation, anger, and fury [Corchuelo] takes his foil by the hilt and flings it away with such force [that it sails through the air for] two miles.” Then, Corchuelo “flops down, exhausted.” At this point, Sancho Panza tells him to “not challenge anyone to a fencing duel ever again, [since] duelists can stick the tip of a foil through the eye of a needle.” Rather, Sancho Panza Quixotic Novels asks Corchuelo to challenge people “to wrestling [contests] or bar pitching [contests, instead of fencing duels] because [he has] got the youth and strength for that.” In reply, Corchuelo says he is “well pleased to have tumbled to Quixotic Novels the truth, and to have learned from experience what [he] was very far from believing.” Then, he “gets up, embraces the other student, and they [are] better friends than before.”

His Exit: Not waiting for “the notary to fetch the [distant] foil, Corchuelo and the other student continue to Quiteria’s village.”
