Abstract

This essay studies: a) the role of literary genres in the Quixote, focusing on their strategies to influence on readers, and, b) the potentiality of using the debate of the pre-eminence of literary genres in contrasted cultural contexts as a critical frame, in order to assess the background of readers’ expectations, reception and transcendence of Cervantes’ works in Spain and France.
