Complete and unabridged, Don Quixote is the epic tale of the man from La Mancha and his faithful squire, Sancho Panza. Their picaresque adventures in the world of seventeenth-century Spain form the basis of one of the great treasures of Western literature.

*John J. Allen, Professor Emeritus of Spanish, University of Kentucky and Past President of the Cervantes Society of America
