Summary

"All prose fiction is a variation on the theme of Don Quixote," remarked Lionel Trilling about the novel that influenced writers ranging from Fielding to Faulkner. Approaches to Teaching Cervantes' Don Quixote brings together resources and strategies for teaching the novel to undergraduates. Although beginning instructors and nonspecialists might be expected to profit most from this collection, even seasoned Cervantistas will discover much of interest to them and their students.

Like other books in the MLA's Approaches to Teaching World Literature series, this one is divided into two parts. The first part, "Materials," evaluates texts, translations, reference works, secondary sources, and aids to teaching. In the second part, "Approaches," fifteen essays reflect on ways to make Don Quixote come alive for students, explain the interpretive underpinnings behind selected strategies for teaching the novel, examine the work's oral and written language traditions, discuss the protagonist as the archetypal baroque man, and describe successful ways of presenting Don Quixote to nonmajors.
