Title: The Adventures of Don Quijote
Course Section Number: SPA-313-01
Department: Spanish
Description: Gentlemen of Wabash, enter into Miguel de Cervantes' world of a (wannabe) knight. Don Quijote is the first modern novel and one of the funniest books ever written. No respectable critic or philosopher fails to mention, analyze, or interpret it. No other book in the world, except for the Bible, has been translated to more languages, undergone more editions and reprints, or generated as many books and articles about it. El Quijote is an icon to the humanities, Spanish culture, and world literature. We will study the novel's cultural perspective, idealism versus realism, humor in response to seriousness, madness in relation to meaning, and modernity set against the nostalgia for medieval chivalry. This course will also explore El Quijote as an ever-evolving pop culture icon: literature, art, film, and television. Come acquire the ability to read and respond to a classic Spanish text in this student-led course. Join us in studying Don Quijote de la Mancha, one of the most important books ever written.
