He suffered from two chest wounds and his left hand was completely maimed. Despite his handicap, however, Cervantes continued to function as a soldier for many more years.Cervantes and Rodrigo, his brother, had been captured during their voyage by a group of Turkish ships on their way home to Spain.

He started collecting ideas for Don Quixote according to his life and its influences.After Miguel de Cervantes died in 1616, his obituary could have outlined his life this way: Cervantes was a fiscally bad soldier of hardship. He served many years in a number of jails. He composed and published literature that lots of people read. But he wrote a book that quickly became popular worldwide, known familiarly as”Don Quixote” or”El Quixote”. The title”Cervantes” became synonymous with Spanish”speech” and”literature”. Every Spaniard admits the name,”Miguel de Cervantes”, and for many years,”Don Quixote de la Mancha” has been required reading in Spanish classrooms.
