EDNOTE. It is true that VN was fascinated by "fatidic dates"--as was Pushkin. A
good deal has been written about both guys & such dates. I'm not sure
Cervantes' birthday was among them. But, yes, VN did do a lecture course at
Harvard on DQ. The lectures have been published. Jansy notes that Feud and Marx
share the same birthday.

The Sh. birthdate isn't actually known is it? But Cerrvantes & Shakespeare
both died on April 23 1616 - but according to different calendars, so
actually 10 days apart. That would have interested VN - - also he wrote a
whole book on Quixote I thought.
