About the Author: 
Miguel de Cervantes, poet, playwright and novelist, is regarded as the most important figure in Spanish literature and generations of writers have been influenced by his innovations. He was born near Madrid in 1547 and died in Madrid sixty-nine years later. In the early part of his life he struggled to make a living with his craft and at one point spent months in Seville jail. His first book La Galatea was produced in 1585 but he did not achieve recognition until publication of the first part of the above masterpiece in 1605. Fame, if not fortune, followed and the second part was finally published ten years later shortly before his death.
