about this book

deutsch english

The Byzantine Novel of early modern Spain receives his basic characteristics from the literary themes of two different genres: on the one hand, the epic poems and novels of Classical antiquity, on the other hand, the novels of chivalry from the Christian middle ages. During the period of Cervantine humanism, and in accordance with the emerging Italian renaissance as well as the Spanish baroque era, the Byzantine Novel evolves as a mixed genre – including Classical, Medieval, and Early Modern literary characteristics. The combination of Classical and Christian themes, just as his early modern penetration by the omnipresent concept of pilgrimage, leads to classifying Cervantes’ last novel as one of the literary as well as thematic climaxes of the Golden Age era in Spain.
