Professor David Sanchez Jimenez writes:

In 2016 we celebrate the death anniversaries of Miguel de Cervantes and William Shakespeare, two of the most influential authors of all time in Spanish and English literature. Both of them are well known for their contributions to spreading language in a universal way, much as Homer, Virgil or Ovid did in their time. In this presentation I will talk about how Cervantes’ writings contributed to the international dissemination of Spanish.
