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direct style that characterizes Cervantes' narrative,"* Don Quixote is a novel that is both immortal satire of an outdated chivalric code and a biting portrayal of an age in which nobility was a form of madness.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

A very long and suprisingly funny read. Full of gems, in regards to quotes and phrases. Speaks to philosophy of life.

Widely regarded as the wqorld's first modern novel, Don Quixote chronicles the famous picaresque adventures of the noble knight-errand Don Quixote de La Mancha and his faithful squire, Sancho Panza as they travel through sixteenth century Spain.

Short and sweet version -- believe me, when compared to the original!
