2013 marks 400 years since the publication of Cervantesí hugely influential novella collection, the Novelas ejemplares, while 2015 is the anniversary of the publication of his plays, Ocho comedias y entremeses, which are far less well known. Although Cervantesí own plays were not a great success in his own time, his novellas had a huge influence on European theater, particularly in France and England, where playwrights adapted them liberally and repeatedly. This conference considers the reception of these collections within Spain and across Europe, reexamining the legacy of Cervantes in a transnational context and juxtaposing aspects of his corpus that have rarely been considered together. Scholars of Cervantes will explore his broad legacy across the traditions, while specialists in European drama delve into a Cervantes who is more than just a source for the plots of English or French plays.
