Description:

Todo el mundo conoce la historia de don Quijote, que bien empieza "En un lugar de la Mancha..." En el verano de 1604, pr�ximo a cumplir los cincuenta y siete a�os, Cervantes entregaba al librero de la Corte el manuscrito de una obra suya titulada El ingenioso hidalgo don Quijote de la Mancha. Esta obra, cuatro siglos despu�s, sigue cont�ndose entre las excelsas del genio humano y su fama le ha llevado a ser patrimonio de la humanidad y texto culmen de la literatura espa�ola y universal. Cervantes proyecta el poder de su fascinaci�n e influencia sobre la �poca moderna como el creador del g�nero que impl�citamente la refleja, el g�nero que es a la vez imaginaci�n y cr�tica; relativista y realista: la novela moderna. (De la Introducci�n de Luis Andr�s Murillo) -------------------------------------------------- Nuestra editorial, inmersa en un proceso de renovaci�n, reedita ahora, en nuevo formato y con nuevo dise�o, obras ya cl�sicas de su cat�logo, principalmente su colecci�n CL�SICOS CASTALIA que ha sido, desde su aparici�n en la d�cada de los 60, el referente para todos aquellos profesores, estudiantes y lectores de cl�sicos de la literatura espa�ola en lengua castellana, tanto en Espa�a como en el resto del mundo.

Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra was born in Alcala de Henares, Spain, in 1547. In 1585, a few months after his marriage to Catalina de Salazar, he published his first major work as an author, the pastoral novel La Galatea which was poorly received. Cervantes became a tax collector in Granada in 1594, but was imprisoned in 1597 due to money problems with the government. Folklore maintains that while in prison, he wrote his most famous novel, Don Quixote, which was an immediate success upon publication in 1605. After several years of writing short novels and plays, Cervantes was spurred to write the sequel to Don Quixote in 1615 when an unauthorized sequel appeared to great acclaim. Though Cervantes' sequel was rushed and flawed, Don Quixote remains a powerful symbol that has endured to present times in many forms. Cervantes died on April 22, 1616, at the age of 69.
