All Welcome!

As part of a three-year project on Don Quijote de la Mancha’s literary and visual adaptations and translations for children in Europe, funded by the Spanish Ministry of Education and Centro de Estudios Cervantinos, this talk will examine a selection of illustrations from adaptations of Don Quijote from the UK, France, Greece, Germany, Italy, and The Netherlands published from 1800 until today. This will be followed by a close textual analysis of Greek and Spanish picturebooks to contrast such issues as the selection processes employed so as to contemporarize and render this adult classic “suitable” for twenty-first century young readers in two different cultural systems, processes that are obviously linked with ideas of suitability and, therefore, censorship.

This talk is part of the Centre for Research in Children's Literature at Cambridge series.
