By Jean Canavaggio

Hablar del príncipe de los ingenios significa no solo enfrentarse con el misterio de su vida, sino acercarse a un mito, donde lo fabuloso, lo seguro y lo verosímil están inextricablemente mezclados. El propio autor nos advierte que «explicar a Cervantes es aventura arriesgada». En efecto, no basta con recopilar rigurosamente lo que de él y de su contexto se sabe, sino que l. a. tarea apasionante radica en ir al encuentro de este personaje enigmático. Así, en busca de una verdad que no cesa de ocultarse, se ve surgir en este libro el perfil de un hombre de una modernidad sorprendente.
