|Commentary||Tendernes and drama are combined in this scene; the loving encounter between Cardenio and Luscinda opposed to Dorotea preventing don Fernando from drawing his sword.
The priest and Sancho, frightened, observe the scene (the barber should appear too).
Illustration of great beauty (see Dorotea and Luscinda's figures) and fine engraving (see Luscinda's dress).
|Notes||1 - This episode was also represented by Vanderbank in London: Tonson, 1738, but in a different way. Vanderbank is colder.|
