Criollos, Peninsulares, and the University of Havana's Commemoration of Don Quixote (1905)
Date of this Version
The third centenary of the publication of Don Quixote was celebrated throughout the Spanish-speaking world, but the Cuban commemoration was particularly problematic because of the social divisions that remained on the Island following the recent War of Independence. Dr. Ricardo Castells analyzes how the speeches of the University of Havana's professors reflected an early optimism about the young Republic's boundless opportunities, even as they dealt with the Island's recent colonial history.
