The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha of 1605 is a special kind of chivalric novel in which humour is central to the tale. However, the second part, which came out in 1615, is “something more” – a something more that establishes a dialogue with the first part (and its readers) but also with Alonso Fernández de Avellaneda’s spurious Don Quixote of 1614. This prodigious story is, without a doubt, the finest of his literary works. It enabled him to explore more deeply the limits of fiction and laid the foundations for the modern novel.
