Description
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.
In a new translation that comes closest, among the modern translations, to the simple, intimate, direct style that characterizes Cervantes narrative, * "Don Quixote" is a novel that is both immortal satire of an outdated chivalric code and a biting portrayal of an age in which nobility was a form of madness.
*John J. Allen, Professor Emeritus of Spanish, University of Kentucky and Past President of the Cervantes Society of America.
