Summary: 'Stimulating and illuminating, Law and History in Cervantes' 'Don Quixote' makes a strong case for the argument that Cervantes' brushes with and knowledge of law were sufficient for him to incorporate its multiple threads throughout the novel. Susan Byrne consistently reveals her thorough knowledge of the confusing compendia that form Spanish jurisprudence as Cervantes would have known it. Byrne's success in identifying legal issues in numerous episodes of the novel (beyond what most twentieth- and twenty-first-century editors have noted) and bringing to light the writings of jurist Paolo Giovio make this book a major contribution to the research on Cervantes.'.

Law and History in Cervantes? Don Quixote is a deep consideration of the intellectual environment that gave rise to Cervantes? seminal work. Susan Byrne demonstrates how Cervantes synthesized the debates surrounding the two most authoritative discourses of his era ? those of law and history ? into a new aesthetic product, the modern novel.
Byrne uncovers the empirical underpinnings of Don Quixote through a close philological study of Cervantes? sly questioning of and commentary on these fields. As she skilfully demonstrates, while sixteenth-century historiographers and jurists across southern Europe sought the philosophical nexus of their fields, Cervantes created one through the adventures of a protagonist whose history is all about justice. As such, Law and History in Cervantes? Don Quixote illustrates how Cervantes? art highlighted the inconsistencies of juridical-historical texts and practice, as well as anticipated the ultimate resolution of their paradoxes.
Über den Autor: Susan Byrne is an associate professor in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese at Yale University.
