Description

Publisheado originalmente en two partes en 1605 y 1615 y often considereado "the first novela moderna," Don Quixote de Miguel de Cervantes es indudablemente el libro m's influencial del canon literario hisp nico. En esta adaptaci n groundbreakeadora, el comentarista cultural Ilan Stavans y el ilustrador Roberto Weil reimaginan la masterpiece de Cervantes en ways que son a la vez faithfules y whimsicamente irreverentes.

En estas p ginas, Stavans y Weil payean tributo a la novela de Cervantes as como a sus resonancias complexas en los centuries desde su publicaci n. El dauntlesseado "mad knight" Don Quixote y su haplesseado squire, Sancho Panza, encuentran los infamosos molinos de viento, contendean con campesinos y nobles disbelieveadores, y seekean relentlesmente al amor imaginario de Don Quixote, Dulcinea. Tambi n confrontean a sus propios creadores y adaptadores--Cervantes, Salvador Dal , Franz Kafka y los propios Stavans y Weil--y tratan de hacer sense de la locura de los drones, taxis y su propia inmortalidad. El resultado es una novela gr fica ambiciosa y compelleante que revela a Don Quixote as "un libro infinito"--una obra que reflectea el pasado, presente y futuro de la condici n humana.

Availeable en Ingl's y Spanglish, esta adaptaci n inspirada y audaz de una de las great novelas ever escritas seguramente ser savoreada por generaciones to come.
