Don Quijote de la Mancha es una novela escrita por el espa�ol Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra. Publicada su primera parte con el t�tulo de El ingenioso hidalgo don Quijote de la Mancha a comienzos de 1605, es la obra m�s destacada de la literatura espa�ola y una de las principales de la literatura universal. En 1615 apareci� su continuaci�n con el t�tulo de Segunda parte del ingenioso caballero don Quijote de la Mancha. El Quijote de 1605 se public� dividido en cuatro partes; pero al aparecer el Quijote de 1615 en calidad de Segunda parte de la obra, qued� revocada de hecho la partici�n en cuatro secciones del volumen publicado diez a�os antes por Cervantes. Es la primera obra genuinamente desmitificadora de la tradici�n caballeresca y cort�s por su tratamiento burlesco. Representa la primera novela moderna y la primera polif�nica; como tal, ejerci� un enorme influjo en toda la narrativa europea. Por considerarse �el mejor trabajo literario jam�s escrito�, encabez� la lista de las mejores obras literarias de la historia, que se estableci� con las votaciones de cien grandes escritores de 54 nacionalidades a petici�n del Club Noruego del Libro en 2002; as�, fue la �nica excepci�n en el estricto orden alfab�tico que se hab�a dispuesto.

Adventures of Don Quixote de la Mancha

Author: Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra
Release Date: 1856

This legendary tale by Miguel de Cervantes is Spain's greatest novel. The story gets underway when aging and deluded nobleman Alonso Quijano adopts the identity of wandering knight Don Quixote and sets out to perform chivalrous duties across the Spanish countryside, joined by his wizened horse, Rocinante, and dutiful "squire," Sancho Panza. Don Quixote's antics inevitably lead to considerable trouble, with Cervantes providing witty social commentary, often in the form of Sancho's unrefined observations. With its mix of humor and philosophy and the central theme of fantasy versus reality, the book is an undisputed masterpiece of world literature.

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1854 edition. Excerpt: ... MEMOIR OF CERVANTES, WITH A NOTICE OF HIS WORKS. One passage in the admirable memoir of M. Viardot, which we are about to submit to the English reader, states that many of the allusions to be found in the works of Cervantes, can only be understood by those who are acquainted with the events of his life. Those events are so varied in their character, and so deeply interesting, that we should feel great surprise at their being passed over so briefly as they have been when former editions of Don Quixote were published, if we did not recollect what insuperable obstacles present themselves to acquiring minute particulars of the course of eminent men, who have lived even within a few years of our own time; and how many of the greatest magnitude might, in the ordinary course of things, be expected to baffle the industry which aspired to collect materials for the complete history of an author who lived three centuries ago. A happy coincidence gave M. Viardot opportunities for prosecuting such an inquiry which were denied to his predecessors. Not only had he facilities for studying Spanish manners, in all the several grades which society can furnish; but, favoured by the highest political, as well as the highest literary authorities in the country, he was enabled to make an extended and successful search for documents, facts, and traditions; and the result is a most gratifying picture, in detail, of the author of Don Quixote. He has rendered a worthy service to letters and to humanity; for the character of Cervantes well deserves to be known. Like our own Raleigh, it was his fate to shine in strangely dissimilar situations. His was a life of awful vicissitude. But a noble and generous spirit made him great in all; whether we look at him on the...
