Las provocadoras lecciones de un escritor genial sobre uno de los clásicos indiscutibles de la novela

A lo largo de casi dos décadas, Vladimir Nabokov impartió cursos de literatura, que llegaron a convertirse en leyenda, en las universidades de Wellesley y Cornell.

Fredson Bowers los reconstruyó a partir de los apuntes del maestro, cuya inusual libertad de criterio de brilla especialmente en el análisis de la obra maestra de Cervantes. Nabokov no vacila en señalar fallos y tropiezos, ni en cargar contra tópicos contumaces, para resaltar los valores auténticos de la historia de don Quijote y Sancho.


The author of Lolita and Pale Fire was not only a master of fiction but a distinguished literary critic as well. In this collection of lectures, which he delivered at Harvard in the early 1950s, Vladimir Nabokov shares insights based on a chapter-by-chapter synopsis of the seventeenth-century novel by Miguel de Cervantes, a timeless classic and one of the most deeply influential works in all of Western literature.

Rejecting the common interpretation of Don Quixote as a warm satire, Nabokov perceives the work as a catalog of cruelty through which the gaunt knight passes.
