Si bien Miguel de Cervantes historia de un hijo seco y avellanado"", EL QUIJOTE es la obra cumbre de su labor literaria, uno de los libros fundamentales de la cultura universal y, como novela, la mas grande de todos los tiempos y aquella en que hunde sus raices la narrativa moderna. -Esmeralda Santiago. Manrique's rendering of the life of Cervantes is brilliant, and his solution to the mystery of who wrote the false Quixote is fascinating, and very persuasive. Cervantes like we've never known him: the rogue, the lover, the.

The actual facts of Miguel de Cervantes’s life seem to be snatched from an epic tale: An impoverished and talented young poet nearly kills a man in a duel and is forced into exile. Later, he distinguishes himself in battle and is severely wounded, losing the use of his left hand. On his way back to Spain, his ship is captured by pirates and he is sold into slavery in Algiers.

The romantic adventures are more affecting. Cervantes Street has sent me back to Don Quixote

The actual facts of Miguel de Cervantes' life seem to be snatched from an epic tale: An impoverished and talented young poet nearly kills a man in a duel and is forced into exile; later, he distinguishes himself in battle and is severely wounded, losing the use of his left hand; on his way back to Spain his ship is captured by pirates. Manrique breathes vivid life into his characters, transporting listeners viscerally into his story as he makes full use of its inherent suspense and drama, its pathos and ironies, its colorful locales and momentous events.

Al comenzar a leer esta novela biográfica basada en la vida de Miguel de Cervantes, autor de El Ingenioso Hidalgo Don Quijote de la Mancha, muchos lectores creerán que las aventuras por las que atraviesa el protagonista son ficción. Sin embargo, el libro está basado en hechos reales y en eventos históricos ocurridos en la España del siglo XVI.

A veces conmovedora, a veces cómica y grotesca, esta obra provee claves que sugieren cómo Cervantes posiblemente creó a los personajes de Don Quijote basándose en sus propias experiencias de vida. Hasta el mismo Cervantes emerge en la novela con un parecido inconfundible al Quijote que encontramos en su gran clasico de la literatura mundial. Pero más que todo, descubrimos a un Cervantes obsesionado por lograr un triunfo literario que parece imposible realizar. Entre sus obstáculos para lograrlo esta Luis Lara, un amigo de infancia que, consumido por la envidia y los celos, luego se convierte en su peor enemigo.

Jaime Manrique ha logrado una gran novela que educa, entretiene y ofrece una nueva interpretación de una vida literaria extraordinaria que merece ser examinada.
