Staff Reviews


Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes is my favorite book of all time. Dream the
impossible dream. Follow Don Quixote along with his faithful sidekick Sancho as
they tilt at windmills and search out heroic deeds to accomplish in the name of
the fair Dulcinia. Should a bar maid’s life be valued any less than a
lady’s?  Miguel de Cervantes may have reached the unreachable star! 
His book lives on after over 400 years.

Description


One of the funniest yet also the most tragic of books, Don Quixote chronicles the marvelous adventures of the self-appointed knight-errant Don Quixote of La Mancha. With his faithful squire, Sancho Panza, he travels through sixteenth-century Spain tilting at windmills, fighting with friars, and twisting the countryside into a fantasy of castles, fortresses, and sorcerers. At the same time, the relationship between the two men grows in fascinating subtlety.

Don Quixote is the most influential work of literature from the Spanish Golden Age and the entire Spanish literary canon. Often labeled "the first modern novel," it is also considered one of the finest ever written. By the 20th century, Don Quixote had come to be regarded as one of the foundations of modern literature.
