Don Quixote Book I

Is it evident that 2 different writers contributed to the main work? If so, how so and if not, how do you explain the continuity of the work when written by 2 different people.

Give examples to support either position.

Book II: Preface-Chapter IV Summaries


In the "Preface to the Reader," Cervantes mentions "the author of the second Don Quixote," a writer who published a false sequel to Cervantes' original work. Cervantes takes the high ground and stresses the fact that the imposter's "sin will be his punishment." Cervantes dedicates the book to the great Conde de Lemos (Count of Lemos), and Cervantes also has kind words for the Archbishop of Toledo, Bernardo de Sandoval.
