First published in 1605, Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra&rsquo;s novel about a man under the spell of fiction has been casting its own spell on readers everywhere for four centuries. The story of Don Quixote has become a kind of natural resource, not only for writers but also for filmmakers, musicians, and artists of all kinds. In this celebration of the first modern novel, internationally renowned writers talk about its continuing global impact, and film clips and musical interludes present some of its many metamorphoses. <br />
