Overview

Cervantes, the Novel, and the New World

Two sets of related issues prompt this study: the birth of the New World in European consciousness and the rise of the Cervantine novel in Spain. The first full-length study to move beyond an inventory of Cervantes's references to the Indies—to Mexico and Peru, cannibals and tobacco, parrots and alligators—this book interprets his novels as a transatlantic, cross-cultural, and multi-linguistic achievement.
