Page 25 the reader to expect a comic denouement for both characters: failure in the endeavor and reintegration with the world. <><><><><><><><><><><><> In seeking to identify the principal factors in the reversal of the reader's expectation of a comic denouement for Don Quixote's career and for the governorship of Sancho, I should perhaps begin by observing that although the dubbing of Don Quixote and the conferring of Sancho's governorship are widely separated in the novel, the fulfillment of the desires of both characters is achieved nearly simultaneously at the castle of the duke and duchess.

But as the outlines of this character begin to take on substance, Don Quijote begins to emerge as a threat to his author's integrity and distance. As Don Quijote becomes more sympathetic, Cervantes is threatened by assimilation with his character.

The second deception occurs during the governorship of Sancho, when a farmer, who is presented to us with the comment that "it could be seen from a thousand leagues away that he was a worthy man and a good soul" (813), later turns out to be a "rogue [who] knew how to play his part very well" (815).
