Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra (1547-1616), ne a Alcala de Henares, est un romancier, poete et dramaturge espagnol universellement celebre pour son roman Don Quichotte (1605-16), reconnu comme le premier roman moderne. Miguel de Cervantes est souvent considere comme la plus grande figure de la litterature espagnole. Il aimait a dire: "la plume est la langue de l'ame." Il est probable que La Galatea fut ecrite entre 1581 et 1583, c'est sa premiere oeuvre litteraire remarquable. En 1587, il voyage a travers l'Andalousie en tant qu'intendant de l'Invincible Armada. Il parcourt a nouveau le chemin entre Madrid et l'Andalousie, qui passe par la Castille et la Manche. Entre les deux parties du Don Quichotte, paraissent en 1613 les Nouvelles Eemplaires et Voyage de Parnasse en (1614). En 1615 il publie Huit Comedies et Huit Intermedes Nouveaux Jamais Representes.

Read information about the authorMiguel de Cervantes Saavedra was a Spanish novelist, poet, and playwright. His novel Don Quixote is often considered his magnum opus, as well as the first modern novel.
It is assumed that Miguel de Cervantes was born in Alcalá de Henares. His father was Rodrigo de Cervantes, a surgeon of cordoban descent. Little is known of his mother Leonor de Cortinas, except that she was a native of Arganda del Rey.
In 1569, Cervantes moved to Italy, where he served as a valet to Giulio Acquaviva, a wealthy priest who was elevated to cardinal the next year. By then, Cervantes had enlisted as a soldier in a Spanish Navy infantry regiment and continued his military life until 1575, when he was captured by Algerian corsairs. He was then released on ransom from his captors by his parents and the Trinitarians, a Catholic religious order. He subsequently returned to his family in Madrid.
In Esquivias (Province of Toledo), on 12 December 1584, he married the much younger Catalina de Salazar y Palacios (Toledo, Esquivias –, 31 October 1626), daughter of Fernando de Salazar y Vozmediano and Catalina de Palacios. Her uncle Alonso de Quesada y Salazar is said to have inspired the character of Don Quixote. During the next 20 years Cervantes led a nomadic existence, working as a purchasing agent for the Spanish Armada and as a tax collector. He suffered a bankruptcy and was imprisoned at least twice (1597 and 1602) for irregularities in his accounts. Between 1596 and 1600, he lived primarily in Seville. In 1606, Cervantes settled in Madrid, where he remained for the rest of his life.
Cervantes died in Madrid on April 23, 1616.
