Written a year before his death, this collection of short plays by Miguel de Cervantes is a fine example of his genius. Oftentimes overlooked, these eight vignettes are funny and touching at the same time. Designed to be performed in between larger acts, they give a glimpse into a world far less glamorous than courtly life. This diverse collection covers such stories as a clever student fooling a gullible husband with tales of magic, and that of two con artists fooling a town with an invisible puppet show.

    " I read this to help prepare for my next trip to Spain. There were many quite funny parts, some slow parts, and lots of cool Spanish names. Overall I was entertained. The ending was interesting and worth the wait. "

About the Author

Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra (1547–1616), novelist, playwright, and poet, was born in Spain of an ancient but impoverished family. After studying in Madrid, he became a soldier and was wounded in battle. He was taken by pirates in 1575, put in prison at Algiers, and was ransomed five years later. He spent the remainder of his life struggling to earn a livelihood from literature and humble government employment. His first attempt at fiction was a pastoral novel, La Galatea (1585), which was followed by his masterpiece, The Adventures of Don Quixote de la Mancha (1605).
