Module description

The module will examine Cervantes' creation of the most famous and influential work in Hispanic Literature, considering: its inter-textual relations with preceding and contemporary modes of Spanish and European literature; its meta-literary concerns with the processes of creation and reception; its philosophical interest in the foundations and nature of knowledge and belief; and its approach to moral, social and political criticism. Attention will also be paid to its literary influence in both Spain and the wider world.
