SPAN 056. Don Quijote

This course will focus on Cervantes's Don Quijote, a masterpiece of Spanish literature and the first great modern novel with widespread influence on world literature. Don Quijote's originality stems from the way in which it makes us think about fiction, history, reality, madness, and perspectivism. While paying close attention to the socio-historical context of early modern Spain, we will analyze the novel's connections with the literary genres of the time, and explore issues related to literary theory.
