Reviews - What do customers think about Los trabajos de Persiles y Sigismunda (Diferencias)?
The travails of Persiles and Sigismunda Feb 7, 2001
...There are several monographs on the subject, but the book itself is missing. And that is a pity: Persiles is a funny and action-packed book, very different from everything else Cervantes wrote.
Under different names, Persiles and Sigismunda travel to Rome. They are sister and brother. On their way to Rome, countless adventures happen, including the kidnapping of Sigismunda by some barbarians. These and Sigismunda suffer a shipwreck in the Mediterranean and the adventures continue. The ending is a twist of the plot.
This novel is very representative of the Reinassance. As noted in other reviews of works from this age, one constant feature is the interaction between mythological characters and Christian deities. The divine entities participate in the action and fantastic things happen. It should be read and appreciated.
