MIGUEL DE CERVANTES:

The most important literary figure in my country is Miguel de Cervantes. He was born in Alcalá de
Henares 29th of September in 1547 and he was died in Madrid 22th of April in 1616.
He was a soldier, novelist, poet and Spanish playwright. He is considerated the most important
person of literature in the word because he wrote “Don Quijote de la Mancha”. This book is very
popular and the most important book of Miguel. Also he wrote different important books and
poems.
About his life I think is important to resalt that, he was baptized in Alcalá de Henares on 9 October
1547 at the parish church of Santa María la Mayor. His mother, Leonor de Cortinas was a native of
Arganda del Rey and the third daughter of a nobleman, who lost his fortune and had to sell his
daughter into matrimony. Miguel's father, Rodrigo, was a barber-surgeon from Córdoba. Little is
known of Cervantes early years. It seems he spent much of his childhood moving from town to
town with his family.
In my opinion the theater is a very interesting for me because there are beautiful plays and the
actors perform the plays. I would like to go with my family to see the plays of Shakespeare's.

In my country, the most important figure literary is Miguel de Cervantes, he was a novelist, a poet, a playwright… I think that he is the most important because he wrote the work most read and most translate in the world behind the Bible, this work is Quixote and it’s one the most important work of my country.

I do not usually go to the theater. Around my life, I going to the theater three or four times, more than the times I’m going with the school. Sincerely, I don’t like going to the theater and I think that it’s boring. One time, when I go to the theater, I slept during the work.

In my opinion the most important literary in my country is Miguel de Cervantes. He is very important because is the greatest writer in the Spanish language. His major work is Don Quixote and it is very famous and popular around the world.

I sometimes go to the theatre, but I don’t want. I think it is very boring and some plays are ridiculous and distressing. When I go to the theatre is with my school and I was bored in each play we saw.

Miguel de Cervantes is one of the most important literary figure in my country, Spain. He is important because he wrote a lot of books like Don Quijote that marked the history of Spanish literature.
He was born the 29th of September 1547 in Madrid, the capital of Spain; and he died the 22nd of April 1616 (the same day that Shakespeare died). The 23rd the people celebrate The World Book Day or St. George (in Catalonia). He wrote chivalric romances.

I go to the theatre three or four times in a year with my school. I like the theatre, but the plays of my school are a little bored. In my life I go to big theatre one or two times. Usually the plays are nice but I don't love it.

Who is the most important literary figure in your country? Why is he or she important?
In my country the most important literary figure is Miguel de Cervantes. He was important because he was the most famous writer not only of the Golden Age also of the Spanish literature.
He was born on 29 of September in 1547, in Alcala de Henares, Madrid. It was the fourth of seven children of Rodrigo de Cervantes, his father.
In 1566 the family moved to Madrid and the next year, when he was 20 years old, he published his first poem, which was a sonnet to the Infanta Catalina Micaela.


Do you go to the theatre? Why? Why not?
I often go to the theatre but only with the school, when we go to see our teaches or our mates.
Because I prefer go to a musical or a concert. I love music, I 'm always listening classical music or pop music.

I don't go to the theatre. Because I'm not interested. But someday I would like to go and see a play in La Ópera (Sidney, Australia).

Cervantes was a novelist, poet and playwright that had a big influence in the society of these times. He wrote one of the most important novel of the world, Don Quijote.

Sometimes I go to the theatre with my family because we think that is a way to be with the family, to have fun and to share special moments.
The theatre, I think that is a form to express the feeling when you are acting. Also, I opine that is a form to liberated the problems and concerns. I like the world of the theatre and I think that is a different form to express what you think.

For me Miguel de Cervantes is the most imporatnt literary figure in spanish language.
He is like Shakespeare a very good playright and writer. He innoved the spanish literature, his best novel i Quijote and the major part of refranes are from this novel.
I hardly ever go to the theatre and if i go i go to see comic plays.

In my country the most important literary figure is Miguel de Cervantes. Is he important first because he write is work in a time of crisis. Then, he was introduced the first modern work in Spain. Moreover, he introduces high values and ideals and he just with books of chivalry to that time. And mainly because a part was writing in jail.

I’m go to the theatre once day with my family to see “life and death of Socatres” . I love the play and if more work like that, I would love to go see them

The most important literary figure in my country is Cervantes. He was born in the Alcalá de Henares, in 1547. He is famous because he wrote works like "Don Quijote", "Exemplary Novels", "The Gypsy Girl" and more. He found a new method to write chivalresque literature, giving humour .While April 23, 1616 was recorded as the date of his death in some references, and is the date on which his death is widely commemorated (along with that of William Shakespeare).

I do not usually go to the theater, but I have ever been. for example, in this institute I have gone many times to see plays and are prepared by students or teachers. I like the theater but I'd rather watch a good movie in the cinema or at home.

The most important literary figure in my country is Miguel de Cervantes, who lived at the same times as Shakespeare. He was a very poor man who losed his arm on a battle in Lepanto, he was kidnapped for arabian pirates, and he lived a lot of unforeseen incidents that inspire he a lot to write one of the best books of the history; Don Quijote de la Mancha. This is an ironic book that moke the cavalry novels, and it's very witty and funny.

I LOVE THE THEATRE, and I love act. I go to the theatre with my parents, my friends... I think that theatre is one of the most important parts of our culture, and if we don't take care of this, we will lose our liberty, because the theatre make people think.
