"(A) major reinterpretation of Cervantes's great novel. . . . In the most lucid prose, David Quint proposes that the relation of Don Quixote to its own 'modern' times and to the modernity of the novel form itself has been seriously misunderstood."--Maria DiBattista, Princeton University.
"This book presents a strong new reading of Cervantes. It also implicitly contests Vladimir Nabokov's influential interpretation of Don Quijote as a 'crude' book. Quint's study--with its impeccable scholarship and meticulous demonstrations of interlace--corrects such pretentiously jaunty readings."--Diana de Armas Wilson, University of Denver

"David Quint has managed to write a book that will be of interest to anyone who wants to read Don Quijote for the first time, or who has already read it, or who, in the celebratory fashion of Alonso Quijano himself, desires to reread and reread it, but perhaps with a new perspective."--Mary Quinn, Society for Spanish and Portuguese Historical Studies Bulletin "Quint's approach is stimulating and insightful."--Choice "There is much more that could be said of this appealing and suggestive new interpretation of Don Quijote. But it is for the reader to encounter the pleasures of the critical text, the magic of analogy, and the amazement of interlacing. Adding a dab of modernity and monetary practices to the whole project further enhances the value of this multi-faceted book. David Quint has produced an exciting and important new reading of Cervante's novel."--Frederick A. De Armas, Studies in the Novel "Cervante's Novel of Modern Times. A New Reading of Don Quijote ... is an innovative reading which examines the narrative geometries of the novel, its architectural and thematic unity, arguing that interlace techniques allowed C. to reflect upon the historical transition from feudalism to a moneyed, commercial, modern society, exploring the impact of crucial social and economic changes in the Castilian mentality."--Carmen Peraita, The Year's Work in Modern Language Studies "This important new book ... offers multitudes of insights... David Quint ... has made a valuable contribution to the study of the novel."--Carroll B. Johnson, Cervantes
