© 2016 CSIC. This article provides new evidences in favour of the hypothesis that Cervantes, after finishing Don Quixote, Part II, partially revised the original, introducing some significant changes and additions, mainly in the last chapters. The analysis of some narrative inconsistencies, that cannot be interpreted as mere mistakes but as significant textual traces, reveals a process of re-elaboration -A process that affects at least four sections of the novel. Most of the evidence gathered here suggests that this revision is closely linked to Avellaneda's continuation, in the sense that Cervantes tried to challenge the apocriphal Quixote making last-Time interventions in his own text.
