"The ingenious gentleman"

Quijote is an Aristotelian reflection on the nature of literature and the social function of writers. Cervantes distinguishes between poetic truth and historic truth, using parodies to try and delimit both natures. He shows how this lack of distinction leads to the moral misery of his hero and, therefore, of his public.

Quijote is one of the prime examples of Spanish literature. However, the work has also played a fundamental role in disseminating the Castilian language, since the text has been translated into many languages. It could be said that El Quijote has helped the Castilian language to become “universal”. This novel is second to the Bible as the most translated book.
