Addition of Concrete Geography - Cervantes Don Quixote - Roberto Gonzalez Echevarria - Lecture 18 of 24 - Video-lecture

Video-lecture, Literature

Description: The fact that the second part of the Quixote is the first political novel is manifested in several ways. The second part adds (taken from the picaresque novel) geographic concreteness to its realistic portrayal of Spanish life and sociopolitical background to the novel: the episode of the boat shows the contrast between Don Quixote's Ptolemaic obsolete notions of geography and the new Copernican conception of an infinite universe.
