    Don Quijote and the Neuroscience of Metafiction What is metafiction? Its original meaning was "a fiction that both creates an illusion and lays bare that illusion."1 But the term has expanded and expanded to include any fiction that even mentions the idea of fiction. That can cover a lot of things, starting with the Iliad.2 I'd like to go back to the original idea.

    In Don Quijote’s time, reading was the only entertainment in the home. Most people weren’t very well educated anyway so some couldn’t tell the difference between pretend and reality.

    igual que Don Quijote, más de 100 años después, utiliza el lenguaje de la caballería andante en el mundo del siglo 17 España. Tanto Calisto y Don Quijote están enamorados, pero cuando Don Quijote intenta ser un caballero andante en un mundo que ya presentó a las armas de fuego, Calisto es un amante cortesano en un mundo de prostitutas, alcahuetas, ladrones y asesinos. Como Don Quijote, Calisto también muere, pero su muerte es un cómico decepción, sin nada de la dignidad heroica de Don Quijote. Calisto
