Overview

Originally published in four separate volumes, this publication sees all 12 Novelas Ejemplares as a single volume for the first time in English. Each story has an individual introduction, the original Spanish text with facing English translation and notes. Barry Ife's re-written authoritative general introduction explores specific issues raised by the Exemplary Novels as a collection, Cervantes's interest in the mixing of genre and in the virtuoso aspects of storytelling. Ife calls the Exemplary Novels "one of the most original, entertaining, and provocative collections of short novels in any language."

Editorial Reviews

Hispania, Volume 98. Number 1, March 2015 - William H. Clamurro
The collection is not only the presentation of a classic (and perhaps unfairly overlooked) work by Cervantes, but with its introductory material, it is also a valuable bridge to the student who might know or have heard of little about Cervantes other than the universally "well known" but usually not-yet-read monument, Don Quixote...This revised and complete edition is a significant contribution.Ife and Thacker and their colleagues are to be commended.
