Cervantes, stung, perchance, by the relish with which his Reading Public had received the fooleries of the man, more to their palates than the generosities of the master, in the sequel let his pen run riot, lost the harmony and the balance, and sacrificed a great idea to the taste of his contemporaries. We know that in the present day the Knight has fewer admirers than the Squire. Anticipating, what did actually happen to him -- as afterwards it did to his scarce inferior follower, the Author of "Guzman de Alfarache"-that some less knowing hand would prevent him by a spurious Second Part: and judging, that it would be easier for his competitor to out -- bid him in the comicalities, than in the romance, of his work, he abandoned his Knight, and has fairly set up the Squire for his Hero. --Elia, in "Barrenness of the Imaginative Faculty in the Productions of Modern Art."
