"The twelve novellas gathered together in Exemplary Novels reveal the extraordinary breadth of Cervantes's imagination: his nearly limitless ability to create characters, invent plots, and entertain readers across continents and centuries. Cervantes published his book in Spain in 1613. The assemblage of unique characters (eloquent witches, talking dogs, Gypsy orphans, and an array of others), the twisting plots, and the moral heart at the core of each tale proved irresistible to his enthusiastic audience. Then as now, Cervantes's readers find pure entertainment in his pages, but also a subtle artistry that invites deeper investigation. Edith Grossman's eagerly awaited translation brings this timeless classic to English-language readers in an edition that will delight those already familiar with Cervantes's work as well as those about to be enchanted for the first time. Roberto González Echevarria's illuminating introduction to the volume serves as both an appreciation of Cervantes's brilliance and a critical guide to the novellas and their significance"--Publisher's description
Celestina by Fernando de Rojas( Book )

13 editions published between 1894 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Celestina is the most remarkable work produced in 15th century Spain and its influence has been enduring and profound. It is a prose dialogue divided into 21 'acts', starting in comedy and ending in tragedy. The main trigger of events is the passion conceived by the youth Calisto for the inexperienced Melibea. The ubiquitous, scheming, shrewd old hag Celestina attempts to exploit the emotions of the young people in scenes ranging from bedroom to brothel. The heightening tension eventually explodes in disaster for everyone. This complete and lavish edition brings both to students and the general public a masterpiece whose impostance in European literature is undisputed.
