Description

This book, the first in-depth study of Cervantes' longest poem, proposes a new reading of this previously neglected work by situating it in the socio-literary context of its day. The point of departure is the exploration of the poem's relationship to its literary models. The Voyage , is a kaleidoscopic composite of dream-vision, ideal journey, literary testament, adoxography, and mock epic. The author demonstrates how Cervantes achieved unity in the poem through the adherence to the canons of the satiric mode. The process of "decoding" the poem's veiled, emblematic language reveals to the twentieth-century reader that the Voyage is one of the finest examples of Cervantine wit.

Résumé
quot;Highly original and reliable at the same time, this interpretation of a most enigmatic blend of narrative and critical modes represents a very important advance in Cervantes scholarship. Future readers will not be able to do without it." (Claudio Guillén, University of Barcelona) "'The Solitary Journey' represents the first in-depth study of the most neglected of Cervantes' works. Lokos' book provides a sharp, up-dated focus on a hitherto unrecognized masterpiece, which is nothing less than Cervantes' literary testament." (Francisco Márquez Villanueva, Harvard University) "Hace tiempo que no he leído un libro sobre Cervantes tan original y tan sólido como éste." (Daniel Eisenberg, Indiana Journal of Hispanic Literatures)
