Example text

I choose to read Cervantes’s own testimony as a fundamental form of action that permits the freed captive to continue the process of survival after liberation. Testimony is the way in which Cervantes—the survivor—initiates the construction of a narrative, the reconstruction of his own history. I would suggest that this first act of attesting to his traumatic experience allows Cervantes to reclaim his own history and to break out of his emotional imprisonment to start a new life in Spain. Chapter 3 addresses the first literary testimony of Cervantes regarding his Algerian experience, the play El trato de Argel, probably composed between 1581 and 1583, soon after his return to Spain.

24 Conceivably, the failure of the negotiations between Charles V and Khair ad-Dìn (1538–1541) formed the background for the emperor’s strike on the North African city. López de Gómara, who was among Charles’s entourage along with Hernán Cortés, the conqueror of Mexico, and his two sons, justifies the imperial offensive: “Quiso [el emperador Don Carlos] probar de tomar á Argel, que era cueva de corsarios y ladrones y lugar fuerte, de donde Barbarroja había hecho tantos daños en España y fuera de ella” [The Emperor Don Carlos decided to try to take the city of Algiers, which was a dungeon of corsairs and robbers and a strong post, from which Barbarossa had done so much damage inside and outside of Spain] (Crónica, 432).

1 The Barbary Corsairs Cuando llegué cautivo, y vi esta tierra tan nombrada en el mundo, que en su seno tantos piratas cubre, acoge y cierra no pude al llanto detener el freno. —Saavedra, El trato de Argel 1 M ANY CRITICS HAVE ALLUDED to the marks left on Cervantes’s thoughts and works by his North African captivity. 2 Certainly, Cervantes’s Algerian enslavement is the phantasmatic center to which his writing incessantly returns. 3 This whirling void speaks to the presence of trauma. 4 In Cervantes, the ungraspable experience of captivity returns relentlessly, as an incessant ritual of concealment and invention that agitates his fiction in uncanny ways.
