Barbara Fuchs analyzes the trope of passing in Don Quijote and other works by Cervantes, linking the use of disguise to the broader historical and social context of Counter-Reformation Spain and the religious and political dynamics of the Mediterranean Basin." "In five engaging chapters, Fuchs examines what passes in Cervantes's fiction: gender and race in Don Quijote and "Las dos doncellas"; religion in "El amante liberal" and La gran sultana; national identity in the Persiles and "La espanola inglesa." She argues that Cervantes represents cross-cultural impersonation - or characters who pass for another gender, nationality, or religion - as a challenge to the state's attempts to assign identities and categories to proper Spanish subjects."--BOOK JACKET.
