about

Don Quixote de la Mancha is one of the classic texts of Western literature, yet Cervantes remains an enigmatic figure. This Companion is a comprehensive treatment of Cervantes' life and work. Essays by outstanding Hispanistas cover the historical and political context of Cervantes' writing, his place in Renaissance culture, and the role of Don Quixote in the formation of the modern novel. The volume provides suggestions for further reading, a detailed chronology and a guide to electronic resources.
