A.Word.A.Daywith Anu Garg
adjective: Of or relating to Miguel de Cervantes, especially his satirizing of the chivalric romances.
After the Spanish novelist Miguel de Cervantes (1547-1616), best known for Don Quixote. Earliest documented use: 1760. Many of Cervantes’s characters have also become eponyms.
“The novel’s strong vein of comic dissent is summed up in the figure of Yorick, Shakespearean joker and memento mori, whose Cervantic tilting at windmills has a serious edge.”
