Don Quijote vio que por el camino venan doce hombres atados con una gran cadena de hierro

por el cuello, y todos con esposas en las manos. Venan con ellos dos hombres a caballo y dos a pie. Su escudero Sancho Panza dijo: -sta es cadena de prisioneros, gente forzada por el rey, que va a las galeras. -Cmo gente forzada? --pregunt Don Quijote--. Es posible que el rey haga fuerza a alguien? --No digo eso --respondi Sancho--, son personas que, por sus crmenes, van condenadas a servir al rey en las galeras por fuerza. --Entonces--contest Don Quijote-- esta gente, aunque los llevan, van de por fuerza, y no porque ellos quieren. --As es--dijo Sancho. --Pues--dijo su amo--, aqu puedo hacer mi tarea: deschacer fuerzas y ayudar a los miserables. Don Quijote se acerc y le pregunt al primero que por qu crmenes iba a las galeras. l le respondi que por enamorado. --Por eso no ms? --replic Don Quijote--. Pues, si por enamorados echan a galeras, yo estara en ellas desde hace tiempo. --No son los amores como los que usted piensa --dijo el prisionero--; que los mos fueron que quise tanto a una cesta llena de ropa blanca, que la abrac conmigo tan fuertemente que, a no quitrmela la justicia por fuerza, an la tendra. --ste, seor, va por msico y cantor--, le dijeron. --Pues, cmo -- repiti Don Quijote --, por msicos y cantores van tambin a galeras? Pero uno de los guardas le explic: --Seot caballero, cantar es confesar en el tormento. Luego al tercero que le pregunt Don Quijote, ste le dijo: --Yo voy por cinco aos porque me faltaron diez monedas de or. --Yo dar veinte de muy buena gana --dijo Don Quijote-- por libraros de las galeras --Eso me parece-- respondi el prisionero-- como quien tiene dineros en mitad del mar y se est muriendo de hambre, sin tener adbde comprar lo que necesita. Si hubiera tenido el dinero necesario para cambiar la opinin del juez, hoy estara paseando por la plaza de Toledo y no camino a las galeras.

Don Quixote saw that twelve men tied with a large chain of iron by the neck, and all with wives in the hands came down the road. Came with the two men on horseback and two on foot. His squire Sancho Panza said: -This is a chain of prisoners, people forced by the King, to the galleys. -How forced people? -asked Don Quixote-. It is that the King make force someone possible? -Not to say that - replied Sancho-are people who, by their crimes, van doomed to serve the King in the galleys by force. -Then - answered Don Quixote - these people, although they take them, go in by force, and not because they want to. -This is - said Sancho. -Well - said his master-can here do my task: deschacer forces and help the miserable. Don Quixote approached and asked the first why crimes went to the galleys. He replied that by love. -Do so no more? -Don Quixote - replied. Thus if by lovers throw galleys, I would be on them long. -They aren't lovers as those who think of you -said the prisoner-; mine were that I wanted both to a full linen basket, that her I abrac with me so strongly, to not take me her justice by force, even her it would have. -This, Lord, VA. by singer and musician, was told. -Well, how - Don Quixote - repeated, by musicians and singers also attend galleys? But one of the guards told her: -Knight, sing Seot is to confess in torment. Then to the third asked Don Quixote, he told her: -I'm going for five years because I missed or 10 coins. -I will give you twenty very willingly -said Don Quixote - to rid you of the galleys -This seems to me - he replied the prisoner who has money in the middle of the sea and are dying of hunger, without adbde buy what you need. If I had the money necessary to change the opinion of the judge, today would be walking through the plaza of Toledo and no way to the galleys.

Al final vena un hombre con ms cadenas que los dems. --Cul es su crimen? -- pregunt Don Quijote. -- Va por diez aos por ladrn -- replic el guarda --. Este hombre tiene solo ms crmenes que todos los otros juntos. Es el famoso Gins de Pasamonte. --Para servir a Dios y al rey, otra vez he estado cuatro aos, -- respondi Gins--; y no me pesa mucho ir a ellas, porque all tendr lugar de acabar de escribir mi libro. Dijo entonces Don Quijote: -- De todo lo que me habis dicho, he sacado en limpio que, aunque os han castigado por vuestros crmenes, las penas que vais a padecer no os dan mucho gusto, y que vais a ellas muy de mala gana y muy contra vuestra voluntad. Me parace duro caso hacer esclavos a los que Dios y la naturaleza hizo libres. Estos pobres no han cometido nada contra vosotros, guardias. Pido que los dejis libres pero si no lo hacen, por fuerza har que lo hagis. Pero los guardias no hicieron caso y le dijeron: --No ande buscando tres pies al gato. --Vos sois el gato, y el ratn, y el bellaco! -- respondi Don Quijote furioso y atac a los guardias. Sancho ayud a dar la libertad a los prisioneros. Muy sorprendidos y asustados, los guardias se escaparon. Don Quijote llam entonces a los prisioneros y as les dijo: --De gente bien educada es agradecer los beneficios que reciben. Les pido que vayan a la ciudad del Toboso, y all os presentis ante la seora Dulcinea del Toboso y le digis que su caballero, el de la Triste Figura, ha tenido esta famosa aventura. Respondi por todos Gins de Pasamonte, y dijo: --Lo que vuestra merce nos manda, seor y libertador nuestro, es imposible de toda imposibilidad cumplirlo. Lo que podemos hacer es rezar por usted. --No!--dijo Don Quijote furioso. Pasamonte, que ya se haba dado cuenta que Don Quijote no era muy cuerdo, empez con los dems prisioneros a arrojarle piedras a Don Qujote, le quitaron la ropa a Sancho y huyeron. Solos quedaron Sancho y Don Quijote; Don Quijote, muy triste de verse tan malparado por los mismos a quien tanto bien haba hecho.

In the end a man was coming with more chains than the others. - What is its crime? - Don Quixote asked. - It goes for ten years for thief - answered the watch-. This man has only more crimes than all together others. He is the famous person Gins de Pasamonte. - To serve to God and to the king, again I have been four years, - answered Gins-; and it does not weigh me very much to go to them, because there I will take place of having just written my book. Don Quixote of that time said: - Of everything what you have said to me, I have extracted in clean that, although they have punished you for your crimes, the sorrow(sentences) that you are going to endure is not a great pleasure for you, and that you go to them very unwillingly and much against your will. Me parace hard case to do slaves to whom God and the nature did free. These poor have not committed anything against you, guards. I ask you to make them free but if they do not do it, by force I will do that you do it. But the guards did not pay attention and said to him: - Do not walk splitting hairs. - You you are the cat, and the mouse, and the villain! - furious Don Quixote answered and it attacked the guards. Sancho helped to give the freedom to the prisoners. Very astonished and scared, the guards escaped. Don Quixote called then the prisoners and this way he(she) said to them: - Of the quite polite people it is to be grateful for the benefits that they receive. I ask them to go to the city of the Toboso, and there present before yourselves(appear) before missis Dulcinea del Toboso and say to him that its gentleman, that of the Sad Figure, has had this famous adventure. He(She) answered for the whole Gins de Pasamonte, and said: - What your merce orders us, gentleman and our liberator, it is impossible of any impossibility to fulfill it. What we can do is to pray for you. - No! - furious Don Quixote said. Pasamonte, who had already realized that Don Quixote was not very sane, began with other prisoners throwing his(her) stones to Don Qujote, they took the clothes from Sancho and they fled. Alone remained Sancho and Don Quixote; Don Quixote, very sad of there is seen so damaged by the same ones who so much good had done.
