Class Outline

This course will focus on the 17th century writer Miguel de Cervantes and his most celebrated Spanish novel "El ingenioso hidalgo Don Quijote de la Mancha". The instructor will assign a selection of some of the most interesting and important chapters in the novel. The class will meet once a week for discussion. Students will be given the option to make a brief presentation on a selection of literary articles about El Quijote. It is recommended that students obtain this specific edition of the textbook: Miguel de Cervantes, Don Quijote (Legacy Edition) edited by Tom Lathrop (European Masterpieces, 2012). This book provides an extensive number of annotations to help any level of bilingual students of English and Spanish read and understand the complex novel.  This course is a continuation of the previous course taught in the Spring of 2019 we will be reading Pt. II of the novel only. This course will continue with Pt. II of the novel in Summer Session II as well.
