This article offers an analysis of a gender-biased version of Charlotte Lennox's "The Female Quixote", first translated into Spanish (via a French version) in 1808 as "Don Quijote con faldas". Women writers were thought to produce absurd texts featuring dubious moral meterials which might bring about dangerous psychological effects. Literary appropriation is a characteristic of this particular translation, in which Bernardo María de Calzada, concealing his French source text, plays the role of an author-translator rather than that of a mediator-translator, both in order to show off his rank in arms and letters and to be a self-censor in order to avoid problems with the Spanish authorities.
