About this item

Las notas inéditas escritas por Javier Marías para una clase magistral sobre el Quijote impartida en Wellesley College, Massachussetts, en 1984.
2016 AÑO CERVANTES
El Quijote de Wellesley es una mirada inédita y magistral de Javier Marías sobre la obra más importante escrita nunca en español.


«Cabe la posibilidad de que algunos lectores de hoy se animen a leer el Quijote en la compañía de aquel semijoven de treinta y tres años, de manera parecida a como lo hicieron aquellas alumnas de Wellesley.
»Estas notas lo recorren casi capítulo a capítulo, aunque en algunos momentos me extendí mucho, y llegué a escribir #minitextos# articulados, y en otros poco o nada. Lo que se ve a las claras es cuáles fueron mis intereses en aquella lectura, y cuáles son mis motivos para considerar esa novela la más rica y compleja que jamás se haya escrito. Me temo que esos motivos míos no coinciden demasiado con los de la mayoría de mis colegas novelistas, pretéritos o contemporáneos. Si algo prueba la vigencia del Quijote es la infinita cantidad de lecturas que de él pueden hacerse, a menudo opuestas o contradictorias. Esta es la mía, que no ha variado sustancialmente desde 1984.»

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

The previously unpublished notes written by Javier Marías for a master class about Don Quixote given at Wellesley College, Massachussetts, in 1984.
2016 The Year of Cervantes
Wellesley’s Quixote is a previously unpublished, masterful look by Javier Marías at the most important work ever written in Spanish.
?It is possible that some of today’s readers are motivated to read Don Quixote in the company of that 33-year-old young man, similarly to the way those students at Wellesley did.
?These notes cover the book almost chapter by chapter, although in some moments I elaborated more, and ended up writing articulated ?minitexts’, and in other instances little or nothing. What you can clearly see are my interests in that reading, and my motives for considering that novel the richest and most complex work ever written. I’m afraid that those motives of mine don’t coincide too much with those of the majority of my novelist colleagues, both past and current. If anything proves the validity of the Quixote, it’s the infinite number of readings that can be done of it, frequently opposing or contradictory. This is mine, which hasn’t varied substantially since 1984.”
