The Emergence of the Modern European Novel in Spain 1599-1605

I want to put forward the hypothesis that it was between 1599, the date when the First Part of Guzmán de Alfarache appeared in print, and 1605, the publication date of the First Part of Don Quijote, that the European novel emerged. This thesis is not new: I proposed it in 1967 in Protée et le gueux (Cros 1967), where I pointed out that Mateo Alemán’s and Cervantes’s texts established a genuine conflicting dialogue.
