iCervantes in Seventeenth-Century England/i garners well over a thousand eferences in English to Cervantes and his works, thus providing by far the fullest and most intriguing early English picture ever made of the writings of Spain's greatest writer. Besides references to the eighteen booksof Cervantes's prose available to seventeenth-century English readers (including four little-known abridgements), this new volume includes entries by such notable writers as Ben Jonson, John Fletcher, William Wycherley, Aphra Behn, Thomas Hobbes, John Dryden, and John Locke, as well as by manylesser-known and anonymous writers. A reader will find, among others, a counterfeiter, a midwifem an astrologer, a princess, a diarist, and a Harvard graduate. Altogether this broad range of writers, famed and forgotten alike, brings to light not only sectarian and political tensions of the day, butalso glimpses of the arts - of weaving, singing, acting, engraving, and painting. Even dancing, for there was a dance called the 'Sancho Panzo'.The volume opens with a wide-ranging Introduction that among other things traces the English reception of both Cervantes's iDon Quixote/i and his iNovelas ejemplares/i, including the part they played in English drama. In the main body of the work, individual items are arranged chronologically byyear and, within that framework, alphabetically by author, thus providing little-known seventeenth-century evidence regarding the nature and breadth of British interest in Cervantes in various decades. Along the way, moreover, thorough annotation helps readers to place individual entries in theirhistorical, social, political, and in some instances religious contexts. Furthermore, readers will find twenty-name germane seventeenth-century pictures and a full index.
