Cervantes and nature

The writer Miguel de Cervantes makes the difference with this excerpt from 'El licenciado Vidriera' between those who are inspired by nature and those who are not able to understand it

Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra (1547-1616) was an Spanish Golden Age novelist, poet, dramatist and soldier. He is unanimously considered the greatest figure of Spanish literature throughout history and his most famous novel, El ingenioso hidalgo don Quijote de la Mancha (The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha), is considered by critics as the first modern novel and a masterpiece of world literature.

The fourth centenary of his death takes place on April 22nd, coinciding with Earth Day, and as a tribute we bringg back this excerpt from El licenciado Vidriera (The Lawyer of Glass), one of his Novelas Ejemplares (Exemplary Novels): "Good painters imitate nature, bad ones vomit it."
