Tilting at Tradition

Problems of Genre in the Novels of Miguel De Cervantes and Charles Sorel

eBook - 2013
Rate this:
Don Quijote and Le Berger extravagant criticize fiction but come in the shape of novels. Far from breaking with their respective traditions, they engage with the chivalric and the pastoral in a creative manner. Genre and imitation are key notions for situating these novels in literary history and in the œuvres of Cervantes and Sorel. With emphasis on the continuity of each writer's approach, Le Berger extravagant is considered in the context of Sorel's aim to educate readers and avoid romance stereotypes, while the Quijote is read as an individual take on the chivalric novel, rejecting the Spa.
