The Exemplary Novels of Cervantes
Spanish writer Miguel de Cervantes was the creative tour de force behind one of the first modern European novels, Don Quixote. Several years later, his literary experiments resulted in another innovation: the first novellas ever written in Spanish. Modeled after a format that was popular among Italian writers during the period, these stories pair Cervantes' trademark wit with important moral lessons.
