Course Description

The first aim of this course is to acquaint the student thoroughly with Don Quijote. The method will be that of a textual interpretation of the work. Emphasis will be on the novel’s literary quality, but other aspects (political, social, philosophical, etc.) will also be brought into focus.

Cervantes’ ideas on literature and particularly on the novel will be examined. The relationship of Don Quijote to previous and contemporary Spanish and European literary trends will be paid great attention. Finally, the Don Quijote will be considered in the light of the critical opinions, expressed since its publication to the present.
