Summary

This volume commemorates the quatercentenary of Don Quijote (Part I, 1604-05), widely acknowledged to be the 'first modern novel'. Through Don Quijote, his Exemplary Novels and other major works, Cervantes, Spain's master novelist, has for centuries shaped and profoundly influenced the different literatures and cultures of numerous countries throughout the world. Containing chapters written in both English and Spanish by leading scholars worldwide, this book deals with topics as fundamental and diverse as contested discourses in Don Quijote, psychology and comic characters in Golden-Age literature, the title of Cervantes' master novel, and Cervantes, Shakespeare and the birth of metatheatre. A special issue of the journal Bulletin of Spanish Studies.
