Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Don Quixote has become so entranced reading tales of chivalry that he decides to turn knight errant himself. In the company of his faithful squire, Sancho Panza, these exploits blossom in all sorts of wonderful ways. While Quixote's fancy often leads him astray — he tilts at windmills, imagining them to be giants — Sancho acquires cunning and a certain sagacity. Sane madman and wise fool, they roam the world together — and together they have haunted readers' imaginations for nearly four hundred years.

With its experimental form and literary playfulness, Don Quixote has been generally recognized as the first modern novel. This Penguin Classics edition, with its beautiful new cover design, includes John Rutherford's masterly translation, which does full justice to the energy and wit of Cervantes's prose, as well as a brilliant critical introduction by Roberto Gonzalez Echevarriá.

Review:

"The highest creation of genius has been achieved by Shakespeare and Cervantes, almost alone." Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Review:

"A more profound and powerful work than this is not to be met with...The final and greatest utterance of the human mind." Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Review:

"What a monument is this book! How its creative genius, critical, free, and human, soars above its age!" Thomas Mann

#LINK<># @DonQuixote People say that sleep deprivation, isolation, and too much reading have made me loopy. But I say nay! Nay!!!

I am going full-creeper and giving a girl I love a special secret nickname without her even knowing about it.

I’ll call her Dulcinea. Get it? Like Dulce del Coochayyyy.
