Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Here are the adventures of that bumbling, infinitely compassionate knight, Don Quijote, and his shrewdly simple squire, Sancho Panza. Part parody and part cautionary tale, is one of the world’s great literary works. The award-winning translator Burton Raffel presents an accurate, consistent, and fluid translation modeled closely on the original Spanish. More than any of its predecessors, this masterful translation comes close to re-creating the inimitable style of Cervantes' prose.

Synopsis:

“Fluent, strong, and engagingly readable. The narrative skill is such that we are soon willing to believe that Raffel is Cervantes reborn and writing in English.” —Guy Davenport
