Students taking this 20-hour course will be introduced to the main features of The Quixote (genre, plot, characters, language, style…) and to deepen in the reasons of its capital importance in both Spanish and worldwide literary production. We will come to know about Cervantes, his life, and what role the historical context he lived in played into his works. We also discover the impact that The Quixote had in its time and later, both in Spanish and Universal Literature. Finally, we will attend to The Quixote as a source of inspiration for the arts throughout time, to its presence in the digital media, and to the now still valid human values and critic to society the work presents to readers.
