Discuss The Dialogue of the Dogs by Miguel de Cervantes

Everything Cervantes wrote before and after DON QUIJOTE is pretty much unknown to everyone, but this little novella is hilarious in my humble opinion. It is a satirical dialog (and a parody of a Greek/Platonic dialog) between two dogs that find themselves with the gift of speech and have many stories to tell each other.

This version is pretty readily available:

But I really like:
if you can find it.

    Here's the link to the Yale Open courses lecture regarding 'Dialogue:'


    It's part of a semester-long course that goes chapter-by-chapter through Don Quixote. Enjoy!

    I love Cervantes, and wish I could come, but I work late on Thursday nights. I'm looking forward to the meet up in April though!

      I'm usually good every other night, so I'm looking forward to the future meet ups. It doesn't look like Thursdays are the only day you meet, so it should work out wonderfully :)
