Abstract
  • This study investigates the relationship of sixteenth-century Italian debates over romances of chivalry to Cervantes's Don Quixote. It argues that Cervantes's novel is a literary installment to the debate and that the novel makes use of imitation and genre-bending to achieve its objective of asserting pleasure as the primary theoretical criterion. Torquato Tasso's discourses are examined in opposition to Cervantes's novel, and similarities between them are explored.
