Estebanillo González – Wikipedia, a enciclopedia libre

University of Oregon, Eugene, Oregon. Flemish engraver and draughtsman Baroque. Hillgarthc, pp. When reading through the novel we can observe that Estebanillo undergoes a profound transformation- from a Middle Class child he becomes estebznillo homeless wanderer, he turns into a sharper, sailor, cook, petty merchant, thief, soldier, beggar, singer, servant, surgeon and many others24, all of which belong to gonzaoez first phase of the narrative- what we might estebaillo Estebanillo’s raking life.

In this phase Estebanillo relation to the world, as well as to honor, undergo a profound change, he becomes a man marked by death, this is followed by a sense of mortal fear that entails a need for protection that he receives from noblemen in exchange for becoming a buffoon, who 24 The Spanish edition of the novel mentions in the prologue eighty-three distinct roles and vocations Estebanillo “played” throughout his life.

La Vida y Hechos de Estebanillo González. (Sepan Cuantos, #163)

The People were astonish’d to behold the Hellish Armour, and Ridiculous Dress, Hooting me along all the way I went, and sometimes Saluting me with Rotten Apples51…” Estebanillo transgression against the protocol of Buffoon and Master is an abomination; he is marched through the streets of Brussels dressed as a monstrosity, and suffers public ridicule and humiliation at the hands of the urban mob.

I asked the servant that set me the Chair… what mov’d him to set it otherwise for me…. It seems that the claim made in the first paragraph has been both refuted and enhanced, refuted by way of negating the stated fact that “I can tell you no more of Family”, and enhanced once we see that for Estebanillo it is not “My Family” but only “Family” and that in this regard Estebanillo is truly a self made or unmade man.


Yet instead of perceiving his victory as an act that bestows honor upon him, Estebanillo runs, thus in effect asserting that the duel was in fact a murder. This fundamental incompatibility meant that sooner or later there was likely to be a reaction both against the idealism of Renaissance culture and against its anthropocentric emphasis” Reedp.

The Formation of a Myth. Yet it seems Estebanillo has now become dissatisfied with his previous way of life, whether it being his brush with death, the contact he had with the higher estate, or the feeling of degradation that ensued from the entire episode, a simple return to his raking life is no longer an option- “I talk’d with all that knew me, and scrap’d Acquaintance with those that did not; and being disgusted at all my former professions Alejandro rated it liked it Jan 07, It troubled me a little, being satisfy’d that tho it is a habit which seems to denote Liberty, yet it is the emblem of Servitude, and Garb of a Galley-Slave; for upon every disgust a Man must presently Strip Jealousie did not keep me waking; I had no Creditors to Dunn me; no Children to cry for Bread; nor Servants to put me into a Passion; so that I car’d not a Straw whether the Turk had the better, or the Persian the worst, or what became of the world.

The relations he is to have with the nobility are inverted, he will play them at a game of fortune, seemingly from a fair and equal position, but while his adversaries risk their money he risks physical degradation. Estebanillo by his own words is a man of the world, a chameleon like mercurial man that has a trump like quality, that is, he has the attributes of a joker, a trait that is enhanced by his transformation into a Buffoon later on, as such his embrace of pride and vanity do not only signify his sinful nature, but also signal the possibility of another interpretation.

Estebanillo’s natural propensity to merriment, practical joking, drunken behavior, and folly in general are already glimpsed in the first phase of the narrative where the onset of Buffoonery is suggested when Estebanillo is bestowed with the jovial nickname “Monsieur d’ Alaigresse29” roughly- ‘Mister Gladsome’, by a French army captain who commands Estebanillo’s mercenary company.


If you are a seller for this gonsalez, would you like estebaniillo suggest updates through seller support? Yet this is only the surface of this tragedy, by showing his power over the life and death of Estebanillo, the Cardinal-Infante asserts his absolute mastery.

Goonzalez begins when Estebanillo kills another soldier in his company- “I happen’d one Day to fall out with a Soldier about a Lye given, and my Sword unluckily running into his Throat, he kick’d up his Heels, thro’ his own Fault When lying in the ditch Estebanillo’s silhouette is combined with that of the Skeleton Horse to form a mockery of goznalez imperial banner, and so the form of the coward is combined estebqnillo the form of the butchered animal to show the affinity between cowardice and butchery thus de-feathering the ‘Imperial Spread Eagle’ and with it, it seems, the heroic image of warfare.

Through this realization he willingly throws off the soldier’s habit he was so fond of and with it his last recourse to Honor.
