The Spanish novelist, playwright, and poet Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra (1547-1616) was the creator of Don Quixote, the most famous figure in Spanish literature. Here’s a frivolous clerihew about Cervantes — I have no evidence to support it!
Disregard the image on Wikipedia. There is no authenticated portrait of Cervantes. The most reliable and accurate “image” is a pen-portrait by Cervantes himself [Prologue to Novelas ejemplares (1613)]:
“He whom you see here, of aquiline features, with chestnut hair, a smooth forehead, with sparkling eyes, and a nose arched, though well-proportioned, — a beard of silver which, not twenty years since, was of gold, — great moustaches, a small mouth, the teeth of no account, for he has but six of them, and they in bad condition and worse arranged, for they do not hold correspondence one with another; the body, between two extremes, neither great nor little; the complexion bright, rather white than brown; somewhat heavy in the shoulders–this, I say, is the aspect of the author of “La Galatea” and “Don Quixote of La Mancha,” and composed the “Voyage of Parnassus,” . . commonly known as Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra.”
A famous anagram of “Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra” is “Gave us a damned clever satire.”
