Primary Instructor:


This course will explore the short fictional stories/novellas of Miguel de Cervantes known as the Novelas ejemplares. We will consider them in their social, historical, and literary contexts, paying attention to the artistic qualities as well as the overall structure of the collection, often overshadowed or overlooked by readers more focused on Don Quijote, Cervantes's greatest work. But in these texts, we see a panoply of characters and plots: witches, lunatics, dogs, prostitutes, lovers, gypsies, and students all populate the novels, offering us a vivid picture of the life of age of Cervantes.
