About the Book

This book studies how the most widely known, translated and read novel in the world, Don Quijote, written in two parts in 1605 and 1615 by the Spanish writer Miguel de CERVANTES Saavedra, has been received in India. Although the masterpiece is well known amongst the educated in this country, there has never been an attempt to examine the nature of its popularity. Here, for the first time some very eminent writers and intellectuals have engaged themselves in offering their personal response as well as studying the immortal work's impact in the literatures of different languages in India. In that sense, this pioneering book is a welcome contribution to the extraordinary literature existing on the subject and its author worldwide. The book is not only a fitting tribute from India on the occasion of the completion of 400 years of the novel, so enthusiastically celebrated all over the world, but also fulfills the long felt need to provide a foundation for more systematic studies on the subject in this country, without ignoring the Indian component.
