The legacy of Columbus's discovery of the New World and its subsequent colonization is a current focus of much historical investigation. Columbus himself continues to be a cipher like the signature he crafted for himself, a signature no one has been able to decode. What is certain, however, is that this signature symbolized the construction of a colonial imagery that is still operative and that the consequences of the violent encounter between the European and Amerindian civilizations are now being debated and reinterpreted.

"These eight interludes, which Cervantes published in 1615 but never saw performed, are short, comic plays that explore the underbelly of Renaissance Spanish society. Their characters include hillbillies and con artists, pimps and prostitutes, adulterous wives and jealous husbands, and an array of other humorous figures--all of whom Cervantes treats in a critical yet sympathetic way. Although interludes (meant to go between acts of a larger play) tend to be works of light comedy, Cervantes often inbues his with deeper themes"--Page [4] of cover
