Don Quixote as Children s Literature Book Excerpt:

Cervantes is regarded as the author of the first novel and the inventor of fiction. From its publication in 1605, Don Quixote—recently named the world’s best book by authors from 54 countries—has been widely translated and imitated. Among its less acknowledged imitations are stories in children’s literature. In context of English adaptation and critical response this book explores the noble and “mad” adventures retold for children by distinguished writers and artists in Edwardian books, collections, home libraries, schoolbooks and picture books. More recent adaptations including comics and graphic novels deviate from traditional retellings. All speak to the knight-errant’s lasting influence and appeal to children.

Don Quixote of La Mancha Full Text Introductory analysis and literary poem by Atidem Aroha Book Excerpt:

Miguel de Cervantes y Saavedra was born in Alcal of Henares in 1547. He was a novelist, playwright, and poet-criticized by himself-considered as one, if not the greatest Spanish language writer of all time, even though he never studied at a university. Don Quixote is his best known work which has transcended nations, cultures, languages, epochs and times. Cervantes has been read by children and adults, men and housewives, rich and poor. He described his own portrait by writing: 'of an aquiline face, brown hair...with a silver beard that twenty years early was a golden one.'The hidalgo Don Quixote of La Mancha wishes to cleanse the world of scoundrels, talkative and goofy: Did he achieve it? Even today he is doing it because although it is utopian to think that human strength can reach such step, he learned to transcend the times and bring us that unequivocal victory while denouncing and trying to introduce some bravery inside our reasoning.We cannot look at the characters of Sancho and Don Quixote as a mere souls' contradiction of the one same people, in this case Spain. They actually complement each other in a kind of literary marriage: one wants justice, shared base of any society and reports it through his ideals, the other is practical as he wants to see them in reality; but two: the announcer and corroborator, are both active in their impeachment.

The Unfinished Manner Book Excerpt:

"The Unfinished Manner examines the fragments produced by European writers and artists in the eighteenth century and earlier, fragments that were not the result of an inability to finish either texts or buildings but rather deliberate refusals to make the traditional gestures of conclusion. Most books published in the past few years on the fragment and the unfinished see it as a peculiarly "Romantic" early nineteenth-century exclusively poetic form. Elizabeth Wanning Harries argues, instead, that the fragment not only had a long history beginning with Petrarch but also played an important part in the history of the novel and other kinds of prose." "Conceptualizing the fragment as a genre, Harries sheds a new light on the practice of reading fiction and "reading" ruins in the eighteenth century, complex practices that often require oscillation between two perspectives or ways of reading. She also explores the gendering of forms in eighteenth-century aesthetics - the perception of fragments as feminine (beautiful) rather than masculine (sublime) - and speculates on the fragment's meaning within the context of eighteenth-century social mythologies as well as those of later eras. Finally, she rereads Coleridge's "Kubla Khan" to show its roots in eighteenth-century fragmentary textual practices." "The Unfinished Manner takes up the questions that arise when writers and artists treat apparently unfinished forms - fragments, ruins, torsos, sketches - as finished, both in the eighteenth century and, implicitly, today. Harries's treatments of Petrarch as the initiator of the fragment tradition, of Sterne in relation to biblical criticism, of Coleridge's "Kubla Khan" in relation to Sterne's Tristram Shandy, and of fragments in their relation to the feminine are original and revisionary contributions that seriously challenge some critical assumptions about Romanticism and its relationship to eighteenth-century texts."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

The Age of Silver Book Excerpt:

The Age of Silver advances a "horizontal" method of comparative literature and applies this approach to analyze the multiple emergences of early realism and novelistic modernity in Eastern and Western cultural spheres from the sixteenth through the eighteenth centuries. Naming this era of economic globalization the Age of Silver, Ning Ma emphasizes the bullion flow from South America and Japan to China through international commerce, and argues that the resultant transcontinental monetary and commercial co-evolutions stimulated analogous socioeconomic shifts and emergent novelistic realisms. The main texts addressed within include The Plum in the Golden Vase (China), Don Quixote (Spain), The Life of an Amorous Man (Japan), and Robinson Crusoe (England). These Eastern and Western narratives indicate from their own geographical vantage points commercial expansions' stimulation of social mobility and larger processes of cultural destabilization. Their realist tendencies are underlain with politically critical functions and connote "heteroglossic" national imaginaries. This horizontal argument realigns novelistic modernity with a multipolar global context and reestablishes commensurabilities between Eastern and Western literary histories. The Age of Silver challenges the unilateral equation between globalization and modernity with westernization, and foregrounds a polycentric mode of global early modernity for pluralizing the genealogy of world literature and historical transcultural relations.
