Cervantes: Bulletin of the Cervantes Society
Information about the WWW Version
This WWW version of the scholarly journal
Cervantes is being offered in order to make at least some
Cervantine scholarship easily available in electronic form around the world.
Most of the material is published here primariily in text format rather
than in graphic form to make it more useful; thus users can easily
conduct their own electronic searches and copy/paste citations or significant
The project has been undertaken with the approval
of the Cervantes Society of America and in its present form involves several

issues of the society's journal Cervantes: Bulletin of the Cervantes
Society of America and its newsletter. This menu and the documents

The front cover, inside front cover, and table of contents for each
issue. The front cover typically offers a black and white engraving or picture,
almost always of general interest and educational value. The inside
front cover lists the officers of the society, the editors and resource persons
for the issue, and information on subscription to the society and on the
submission of manuscripts. Abstracts accompany the articles listed in the
table of contents; abstracts written in Spanish are given for articles published
in English, and vice-versa. If individual pieces are available in electronic
form, the table of contents provides links to them.
Individual articles, notes, reviews, and forum pieces. All such items
for all back issues of the journal have been posted on the web.
Master lists of items contained in all the issues of the journal,
with links to the items which are available in digital form. Three
such lists have been prepared, offering alternatives to searching through
some 40 different issues for information:
A Master Table of Contents for all issues, organized
chronologically by issue.
An Index for all issues, listing articles and
other pieces by the author's last name.
A list of Books Reviewed for all issues, listing
the items by the book author's last name.
The intent has been to produce electronic versions
of CSA documents primarily the bulletin which closely resemble
the original printed version. Some of the files are in
pdf* form and are almost exact duplicates. Most
of the files, however, are in HTML format and incorporate some minor changes:
Line length is not respected. In the original version, a page of text is
typically presented in as many characters as can fit in the printable pace
of a page, 4.3 x 7 inches. The electronic version maintains the page divisions
and numbering system necessary for scholarly documentation, but leaves the
font size and line length up to the user's browser, hardware, and personal
preferences or needs. Thus a specific page of any given issue will contain
almost exactly the same information in the original and the WWW versions,
but an individual line, say line number 10, of a original page may not correspond
to the same line number on your browser or printout.
The text has been de-hyphenated. That is, words which have been divided across
lines or pages in the original have been re-joined to facilitate electronic
Footnotes originally divided across more than one page are kept on one page
to prevent confusion; when this happens, it is noted in the footnote with
a grayed-out page number in brackets, e.g., [p.
128] indicating the page on which the rest of the footnote occurs
in the original version.
Some formatting features are not easily duplicated in HTML code, such as
fill-in periods before page numbers in the table of contents and hanging
indents in the lists of works cited; in such instances other conventions
have been employed.
Obvious typographical errors and omissions in the original version have been
