Hello Cobblers!

If you’re reading this, you’ve survived Monday. Let’s celebrate your success with the wise words of Miguel de Cervantes, whose birthday we are also celebrating.

I was slightly underwhelmed by the lack of links I’ve found for Cervantes; he’s held as a literary genius, so where are all the features? Maybe I was just looking in the wrong places.

Here we have an extended biography, as well as access to some of his works from the Cervantes Project: “Miguel de Cervantes (1957-1616): Life and Portrait.”

I also found a scholarly look at the importance of Cervantes’ “Don Quixote” from a historical criticism perspective. It’s published on Columbia College’s site and written by Dr. Alison Krueger: “Historical Context for Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes.”

To finish out our list, I was able to find one feature from NPR regarding the location Cervantes requested to be buried: “The Reason Cervantes Asked to be Buried Under a Convent.”

That is all for today.
