Miguel de Cervantes Saaverda's (1547-1616) life was occupied with a struggle to earn a livelihood from literature and humble government employment. As well as Don Quixote, he wrote a number of plays and a collection of highly accomplished short stories, Exemplary Tales (1613). Translated with an introduction by C. A. Jones
Exemplary Storiesby Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra
More popular in their day than DON QUIXOTE, Cervantes's EXEMPLARY STORIES (1613) surprise, challenge and delight. This new translation captures the full vigor of Cervantes's wit and makes available two rarely printed gems, "The Illustrious Kitchen Maid" and "The Power of Blood".
