Quixotes Around the World
Quixotes Around the World represents the voice of the work’s readers in 30 different languages, and features iconographic and film translations and adaptations for children.
Quixotes Around the World shows the rich holdings of the Instituto Cervantes’s network of libraries and, at the same time, pays tribute to the hundreds of translators of Cervantes’s work who, over a period of 400 years, have made it possible to disseminate Cervantes and his texts worldwide.
It features iconographic and film translations and adaptations for children and young readers, as well as representing the voice of the work’s readers in 30 different languages. The adventures it tells of and the ‘Quixotesque’ values they contain continue to be translated to this day. What new translation is being completed now, as this exhibition opens? Only time will tell. Now is the time to enjoy and be amazed at the richness and the linguistic variety of Don Quixote throughout its 400 years of history and success.
