The classic tale of Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes is an important part of the literary canon in that it is considered one of the first novels ever written. Thus, Cervantes was taking on a new way of expressing narrative in this masterpiece. Interestingly, the novel was published in two volumes, with the second published a decade after the first, and contains aspects of meta-narrative that would be considered avant garde in contemporary times. For example, the fictional characters in volume two are familiar with the publication of volume one. Since there were not many rules concerning the boundaries of narrative at that time, it’s possible that this device did not seem as revolutionary as it does today (or, effectively, that everything about Don Quixote was revolutionary, and thus this aspect did not perhaps stand out as much as it does now).
