Los eruditos y los amantes seguidores del hidalgo célebre de La Mancha participaron en una celebración un 03 de noviembre de 2004 en la Conferencia Internacional denominada "Don Quixote: Los Primeros Cuatrocientos Años", organizado por la Universidad Hofstra en la Ciudad de Hempstead, Estado Nueva York; evento que nació, no como un mero festival de literatura, sino como un festival de cartas combinadas con la música, la historia y las artes visuales. De sus más de cincuenta presentaciones, se ha escogido una colección de veintiuno, cuya naturaleza diversa puede iluminar algunos recreos hasta ahora poco conocidos de Cervantes, su mundo y su invención; trabajos selectos que ahora presentamos en forma de libro.

It is more than four hundred years since Cide Hamete hung up his quill, never to be touched, he warned, by any others. And still the saga of Don Quixote continues, recast through the intervention of countless others, tens of thousands in number, who prod and probe and relive and reshape Cervantes’s creation, and who challenge and question, and weave its essence into the now and forever. That is why scholars and sheer lovers of La Mancha’s famed hidalgo joined in a three day celebration in November of 2004, and the international conference called Don Quixote: The First Four Hundred Years”, hosted by Hofstra University in the City of Hempstead, State of New York, came into being — not as a mere festival of literature, but as a festival of letters merged with music, history and the visual arts. From its more than fifty presentations, we have culled a collection of twenty-one whose diverse nature may illuminate some of the hitherto unplumbed recesses of Cervantes, his world and his invention.
