Pub. Date:
"Born in Spain in 1547, Miguel de Cervantes is considered one of Spain's outstanding writers, and his most important work, Don Quixote, is believed by many to be one of the greatest novels ever written. Many of the events in Don Quixote were inspired by the author's own adventurous life. Cervantes' experiences as a soldier, prisoner, tax collector, and supplier for the Spanish Armada gave him a wealth of subject matter on which to draw in creating his novels, poems, and plays."
