R. V. Young considers what it means to say that Shakespeare and Cervantes were masters of realism.

This year is the 400th anniversary of both Shakespeare’s and Cervantes’s death. Numerous events mark the bard’s passing in England. In Spain, there are a handful of readings and tours celebrating Cervantes, but he has been mostly ignored. Why?
