Cortado is so taken with this play-acting that he drags his feet about leaving it behind, even knowing leer rinconete y cortadillo absurdity. Their moral detachment disinclines them to pass judgment on what they see in the city.

Aligned with leer rinconete y cortadillo perspective, we similarly forbear. The assumption of perspective is facilitated by our sympathy for them, itself in part a function of their age: But our affinity for them is not entirely innocent: Forcione and Patricia Kenworthy.

Their own relationship commences in the parlance of the court.

From this point on they draw attention to the leer rinconete y cortadillo malapropisms by repeating them, or simply register mentally the mistakes they hear in the patio. At the end of the story, the narrator re-emphasizes the language by reviewing the mistakes.

The attention to language contributes to the atmosphere of parody. The types themselves -thieves, prostitutes, cutthroats- are real, but the words they utter are completely out of place.

Having engaged the organization to slice up the face of a merchant, he complains that the service has been carried out on the intended victim's servant. Leer rinconete y cortadillo is to be expected, he finds in favor of his own big business, in language financial and judicial.

The difference is that Castile's justice prosecuted the culprits. Cervantes singles out Seville, which not only tolerates but colludes with its criminals. We who smile and wink at their conduct are, like Seville, implicated.

The social satire is therefore potentially just as broad as its readership, although Leer rinconete y cortadillo specifically lampoons the religious, business, and judicial communities of Seville.

But the satire is literary as well as social firstly in the very general sense that it is anti-heroic. This type of fiction, related to the picaresque as a child of the Counter Reformation, springs in part from the desire to show the folly of earlier leer rinconete y cortadillo genres, especially the romances of chivalry and the pastoral.
