basis of what society Triarcal has marked as masculine values: manhood and man as a provider agent of the family. Through the insult, the woman attacked ca some institutionalized masculine values. The insult of man is rather a perlocutionary act, of defense and justification Don Quijote In a village of La Mancha, the name of which I have no desire to call to mind, there lived not long since one of those gentlemen that keep a lance in the lance-rack, an old buckler, a lean hack, and a greyhound for coursing. An olla of rather more beef than mutton, a salad on most nights, scraps on Saturdays, lentils on Fridays, and a pigeon or so extra on Sundays, made away with three-quarters of his income. The rest of it went in a doublet of fine cloth and velvet breeches and shoes to match for holidays, while on week-days he made a brave figure in his best homespun. The Best Literary Work in History In 2002 the Book Club of Norway and the Nobel Foundation organized the selection of the best fiction book in History .... A group of one hundred writers from 54 countries chose Don Quixote from La Mancha, who surpassed Madame Bovary, from Frenchman Gustave Flaubert (second). Each of the hundred writers surveyed, including several Nobel Prize winners, had to mention ten titles to contribute to the creation of a Universal Literature Library. Cervantes won Flaubert by fifty percent more votes. World Book Day Miguel de Cervantes, author of Don Quixote, died on April 23, 1616. On that day of the same year, William Shakespeare also died. UNESCO declared April 23 as the WORLD DAY OF THE BOOK, at the request of the government of Spain, where it was held for many years. On that day almost all Spaniards and Spaniards give a book to their loved ones. In some areas of Spain, as in Cataluna, the book is usually accompanied by a rose. The First Translation Was in English In 1612, four years before the death of Cervantes and seven after the original edition (1605) appears the first translation of Don Quixote into a foreign language. The person in charge of that tradition, entitled The History of the Valorous and Wittie Knight-Errant, Don Quixote of the Mancha, was the English Thomas Shelton The Work translated into more languages after the bible (pictures of books) It has inspired artists from all over the world: literature, cinema, music, theater, ballet, and painting. And it has given unique personality to the Spaniards, with a word of their own Quixote. m. Man who adds his ideals to his convenience and disinterested work and committed in defense of causes that he considers fair, without success. Dictionary of the Royal Spanish Academy

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
