One of the Best-Loved Novels of all Time!  March 30, 2011
by


First of all, I absolutely love this textbook. It was about a year between the time I bought it and actually got around to reading it, as its near-1,000 pages of 400 year old writing can seem daunting at first. But, as has been said before, this textbook is as 'timeless' as they come. It seems a lot of the reviewers are missing a major point, however, which I would like to delve into. Perhaps (them missing this point) comes from them reading it as a 'comedy' or reading merely sections of it for a class. But taking this textbook in as a whole, one cannot help but be moved pretty profoundly.
I mean, yeah, this textbook is funny as hell!!! I laughed SO hard when Don Quixote and Sancho are at the Inn for the first time, and Don Quixote makes his elixir. And it didn't set so well with either him or Sancho, and almost killed poor Sancho. If you've read it, you know what I'm talking about :)






Don Quixote: 5 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.

Summary

The 17th-century Spanish masterpiece is one of the funniest and most tragic books ever written and is widely regarded as the world's first modern novel.

Don Quixote fully titled The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha, is a novel written by Spanish author Miguel de Cervantes. Published in two volumes a decade apart (in 1605 and 1615), Don Quixote is the most influential work of literature from the Spanish Golden Age in the Spanish literary canon. As a founding work of modern Western literature, and one of the earliest canonical novels, it regularly appears high on lists of the greatest works of fiction ever published

Edith Grossman's definitive English translation of the Spanish masterpiece.

You haven't experienced Don Quixote in English until you've read this masterful translation.
