The course facilitates a close reading of Don Quixote in the artistic and historical context of renaissance and baroque Spain. Students are also expected to read four of Cervantes' Exemplary Stories, Cervantes' Don Quixote: A Casebook, and J.H. Elliott's Imperial Spain. Cervantes' work will be discussed in relation to paintings by Velázquez. The question of why Don Quixote is read today will be addressed throughout the course. Students are expected to know the book, the background readings and the materials covered in the lectures and class discussions.

Cervantes Don Quijote

I can't tell you how much I have enjoyed Prof Gonzalez Echevarria's lectures on El Quijote. I have always wanted to take another course on the Quijote, slowly and carefully reviewing and rereading this master work within the context of the times. I have found this and more in these lectures and have encouraged many friends and colleagues to do the same.

Gracias, Doctor González
