Yes, DWill, it was Cide Hamete who said that the tricksters were as mad as the tricked, which answered the question I had asked before I read up to that point, so I made it a point to write down the page and paragraph where he said that. I mentioned it in my post in the thread Don Quixote: Part II.

Thanks. I read a few pages farther, and found Sancho saying that only the book by Cide Hamete contains the authentic exploits of Sancho and his master. So that answered my question about more narrative wrinkles. It boggles my mind to think about Cide Hamete supposedly writing the sentence in which Sancho says that Cide Hamete is the authentic historian!
