Cervantes Don Quijote

I can't tell you how much I have enjoyed Prof Gonzalez Echevarria's lectures on El Quijote. I have always wanted to take another course on the Quijote, slowly and carefully reviewing and rereading this master work within the context of the times. I have found this and more in these lectures and have encouraged many friends and colleagues to do the same.

Gracias, Doctor González
