VILLANUEVA, Darío. EL QUIJOTE: DIALOGISMO Y VEROSIMILITUD. Rev. chil. lit. [online]. 2005, n.67, pp.11-29. ISSN 0718-2295.

This essay shows how Cervantes’ Quijote perfectly fits the requirements of the novelistic model that Mijail Bajtín considered as the most developed, classical and pure. That is, that which, through an internal dialogue, realizes all the literary possibilities of the multilingual, novelistic word. Cervantes made his own the aim of widening as well as deepening the linguistic horizon of the novel through dialogism. Dialogism understood as the interweave of oral, written and printed languages that besides, are inexhaustible sources of verisimilitude, of poetical truth. The multiple forms of enunciation carried out by several agents, turn the fictive discourse in Don Quijote into a "lying fable" that bonds however, with "the understanding of those who would read it"

Keywords : Narrator; Implied author; Orality; printing; reader; Verisimilitude.
