The polyphonic world of Cervantes and Dostoevsky

Author: Slav N Gratchev
Publisher: Lanham, Maryland : Lexington Books, [2017] ©2017
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
This book shows that Cervantes deliberately employed polyphonic structure in Don Quixote, a mode with more sophisticated expressive possibilities that monophonic narration could not offer. It suggests that Don Quixote can be treated as a semi-polyphonic hybrid novel that successfully amalgamates two narrative modes, monophonic and polyphonic.
