This volume of essays by new and established figures in its field will appeal to scholars in disciplines such as literature, drama, history, and cultural studies. It offers ten fresh perspectives on Miguel de Cervantes's Don Quixote 400 years after the publication of its Second Part and consists of two sections. The first group of articles examines meta-readings and visual elements of the masterpiece in relation to some major literary forms and genres--such as novels of chivalry, the Alexandrian epic narrative and the genesis of detective fiction-, all of which contributed to the creation and maintenance of a quixotic tradition in Western writing. The second set of essays explores the transformation of the novel in various linguistic, generic and sociopolitical contexts and formats, from Spanish royal festivities, foreign translations and chapbooks to macroeconomics and Latin American street theater.

This book is number 39 in Juan de la Cuesta Hispanic Monograph's Documentación cervantina "Tom Lathrop" series.
