The Phantom Chapters of the Quijote

By Raymond S. Willis Jr. | Go to book overview

CHAPTER IV
PSEUDO-INTERRUPTIONS
The two preceding sections have treated individual cases of the stylistic liaison of one chapter with its neighbor that is established either at the close or at the opening of the segment of prose. Changing the focus to the aggregate of chapters, it is evident that a large number of pairs of chapters in both Parts. (the exact figure is 99 out of 124)1 are stylistically linked to their neighbors either by overflowing terminations or by anaphoric openings, or by both; and that the linking further admits the existence of instances when a temporary interruption to the flow is set up, either by an end-stopped closing before an anaphoric opening; or by an absolute opening, which is constructed only to be abolished before the textual flow is irrevocably halted.The situation may be summarized in tabular form.
I. Terminal overflow:2
a. Introduction severed from oratio recta: I, 13-14, 22-23, 32-33, 33-34, 38-39, 39-40, 42-43, 50-51; II, 31-32.
b. Oratio recta severed at an internal point: I, 28-29, 34-35, 37-38, 40-41; II, 22-23, 38-39, 42-43.
c. Dialogue severed at an internal point: I, 30-31, 44-45, 47-48, 49-50; II, 41-42.3
____________________
