Unequal Raul Julia by Miluka Rivera
Although Miguel de Cervantes never attained financial affluence during his lifetime (1547-1616), he did gain a measure of fame due to "Don Quixote." Cervantes was known as a great personality and brave soldier long before he became known as an author. He was a soldier by profession and only turned to writing due to financial misfortunes. "Don Quixote" was the first best-selling modern novel and has been translated into 68 languages. Cervantes was a contemporary of Shakespeare and died on the same day, April 23, 1616.
