El Quijote desde América (Segunda parte)Duilio Ayalamacedo y James Iffland (eds.)
The «Quijote» from America (Second Part) is a homage to Don Quixote (1615) by a group of distinguished specialists from both sides of the Atlantic. It is a way of recognizing, and celebrating, the immediate arrival of the Cervantes masterpiece to America and its deep subsequent impact on many important aspects of the American culture. The works focus either on the themes and episodes of the Second Part of Don Quixote or on the traces of the work in various spheres of literary and artistic production of the American continent.
