Omparison between Don Quixote and Amadis

Compare AmadA­s of Gaul by GarcA­ RodriguA©z de Montalvo (chapters 1-15), and Don Quixote (chapters 1-50) as novels. What differences do you see in the way these texts are written? Do you find these differences significant enough to justify the frequent identification of Don Quixote as the first modern novel? Or on the contrary, do you agree with the alternative classification of Don Quixote as the fullest development of the novel of chivalry?
