Considered a novel (in this case a short novel or a long story within another novel —Don Quixote de la Mancha—), Miguel de Cervantes applies in The Curious Impertinent his baroque but clear and accident-ridden prose to tell Anselmo’s obsession with proving that his wife Camila is faithful to him.
The plot of The Curious Impertinent begins in medias res. Before Anselm, Camilla, and Lothair became “two rich and leading knights” and “a chief and beautiful maiden” many events have occurred that are not narrated.
As in the best stories, this beginning catches the reader’s interest.

“In Florence, a rich and famous city of Italy, in the province they call Tuscany, lived Anselm and Lothair, two rich and leading gentlemen, and so friends that, par excellence and antonomasia, of all who knew them the two friends were called. They were single, young men of the same age and of the same customs; All of which was quite cause that the two with reciprocal friendship corresponded. It is true that Anselm was somewhat more inclined to amorous pastimes than Lothair, whom those of the hunt took after them; but, when he offered, Anselm ceased to go to his tastes to follow those of Lothair, and Lothair left his own to go to those of Anselm; and, in this way, his wills were so one to one, that he had not arranged a clock that would walk so.
Anselm was lost in the love of a chief and beautiful maiden of the same city, daughter of such good parents and so good for herself, that he determined, with the opinion of his friend Lothair, without whom he did nothing, to ask her for a wife from his parents, and so put him into execution; and he who carried the embassy was Lothair, and he who concluded the business so much at the pleasure of his friend, that in a short time he was placed in the possession he desired, and Camilla so glad to have reached Anselm for her husband, that she did not cease to thank heaven, and Lothair, by whose means so much good had come to her.”
