Tomorrow is 23rd April. This date commemorates the death of two universal writers: Shakespeare and Cervantes. They both died in 1616.
Miguel de Cervantes is possibly the most famous Spanish novelist, poet, and playwright.



He was born in September 1547 in Alcalá de Henares, a city near Madrid (Spain). He was the fourth of seven children. His father was a doctor and his paternal grandfather was a lawyer. When he was young he started writing short poems. He lived in Italy. Before being a writer, he was a soldier  in a regiment of the Spanish Navy. Did you know that he was in prison for five years?

His most famous novel “El ingenioso hidalgo Don Quijote de La Mancha” was published in 1605. It was very popular and Cervantes published the second part in 1615. 
He also wrote poems, dramas and comedies.
