Resumen


En su condición de obra maestra, Don Quijote se ha convertido en un mito fácilmente reconocible, aunque en ocasiones reducido a conocidos pasajes como la lucha contra los molinos o el manteamiento de Sancho. Estos elementos son particularmente recurrentes en las ediciones para niños, lo que sugiere la importancia que estas versiones pueden tener para comprender la extensa popularidad de la novela de Cervantes, en general, y de esos fragmentos en particular. Este artículo explora la relación del lector infantil con Don Quijote y proporciona una visión panorámica de las maneras en las que los niños ingleses del siglo XVIII (1660-1832) pudieron llegar a conocer el texto. Con este objetivo, relaciona literatura de cordel, compendios y libros infantiles para sugerir que los niños pueden ser considerados lectores tempranos de la obra, así como para resaltar el continuo intertextual y la riqueza que existe en la recepción de Don Quijote en Inglaterra, desde el siglo XVII hasta el XIX.
