Genre:

Alonso Quijano es un hidalgo -es decir, un noble empobrecido de escala social baja-, de unos cincuenta años, que vive en una aldea de la región La Mancha a comienzos del siglo XVII. Su afición es leer libros de caballería donde se narran aventuras fantásticas de caballeros, princesas, magos, castillos encantados... Se dedica a estos libros con tanta pasión que acaba perdiendo el contacto con la realidad y decide que él también puede emular a sus héroes de ficción.Recupera una armadura de sus antepasados y saca del establo a su viejo caballo, al que da el nombre de Rocinante. Como todo caballero necesita una dama, convierte el recuerdo de una campesina de la que estuvo enamorado en la hermosa Dulcinea del Toboso. Y a sí mismo se pone el nombre de Don Quijote, como el famoso caballero Lanzarote (Lancelot).Sale así al campo, con un aspecto ridículo, con la idea de realizar hazañas heroicas. Pero pronto comienzan los malentendidos con la realidad. Ve una posada y cree que es un castillo. Exige al dueño que lo arme caballero en una escena cómica e intenta rescatar a un joven pastor que está siendo azotado por su dueño. Ataca a unos mercaderes que se burlan de él pero es derribado y herido.Vuelve a su casa y esta vez consigue convencer con promesas de fama y riqueza a un labrador, Sancho Panza, para que sea su escudero. Sancho, al contrario que Don Quijote, es un hombre ignorante y práctico. Pero poco a poco quedará contagiado por los sueños de su señor.

Edith Grossman's definitive English translation of the Spanish masterpiece. Widely regarded as the world's first modern novel, and one of the funniest and most tragic books ever written, Don Quixote chronicles the famous picaresque adventures of the noble knight-errant Don Quixote of La Mancha and his faithful squire, Sancho Panza, as they travel through sixteenth-century Spain. Unless you read Spanish, you've never read Don Quixote. "Though there have been many valuable English translations of Don Quixote, I would commend Edith Grossman's version for the extraordinarily high quality of her prose. The Knight and Sancho are so eloquently rendered by Grossman that the vitality of their characterization is more clearly conveyed than ever before. There is also an astonishing contextualization of Don Quixote and Sancho in Grossman's translation that I believe has not been achieved before. The spiritual atmosphere of a Spain already in steep decline can be felt throughout, thanks to her heightened quality of diction. Grossman might be called the Glenn Gould of translators, because she, too, articulates every note. Reading her amazing mode of finding equivalents in English for Cervantes's darkening vision is an entrance into a further understanding of why this great book contains within itself all the novels that have followed in its sublime wake." From the Introduction by Harold Bloom Miguel de Cervantes was born on September 29, 1547, in Alcala de Henares, Spain. At twenty-three he enlisted in the Spanish militia and in 1571 fought against the Turks in the battle of Lepanto, where a gunshot wound permanently crippled his left hand. He spent four more years at sea and then another five as a slave after being captured by Barbary pirates. Ransomed by his family, he returned to Madrid but his disability hampered him; it was in debtor's prison that he began to write Don Quixote. Cervantes wrote many other works, including poems and plays, but he remains best known as the author of Don Quixote. He died on April 23, 1616.

The ingenious hidalgo Don Quixote de la Mancha

Publisher: Penguin Classics

Release Date: 2001-06-07
Genre: Fiction

Don Quixote has become so entranced reading tales of chivalry that he decides to turn knight errant himself. In the company of his faithful squire, Sancho Panza, these exploits blossom in all sorts of wonderful ways. While Quixote's fancy often leads him astray- he tilts at windmills, imagining them to be giants- Sancho acquires cunning and a certain sagacity. Sane madman and wise fool, they roam the world together-and together they have haunted readers' imaginations for nearly four hundred years. With its experimental form and literary playfulness, Don Quixote has been generally recognized as the first modern novel. This Penguin Classics edition includes John Rutherford's masterly new translation, which does full justice to the energy and wit of Cervantes's prose, as well as a brilliant new critical introduction by Roberto Gonzalez Echevarria.
