Don Quixote: The Complete Version

by Miguel De Cervantes Saavedra

Andrews Uk | July 6, 2010 | Kobo Edition (eBook)

Don Quixote: The Complete Version is rated 5 out of 5 by 5.
Cervantes' tale of the deranged gentleman who turns knight-errant, tilts at windmills and battles with sheep in the service of the lady of his dreams, Dulcinea del Toboso, has fascinated generations of readers, and inspired other creative artists such as Flaubert, Picasso and Richard Strauss. The tall, thin knight and his short, fat squire, Sancho Panza, have found their way into films, cartoons and even computer games. Supposedly intended as a parody of the most popular escapist fiction of the day, the 'books of chivalry', this precursor of the modern novel broadened and deepened into a sophisticated, comic account of the contradictions of human nature. Cervantes' greatest work can be enjoyed on many levels, all suffused with a subtle irony that reaches out to encompass the reader.

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A scholar's read. Because this book was rated by literary aficionados from around the world as the best novel ever, I persevered through it. Sometimes hilarious and mostly entertaining it still requires a great deal of intellectual effort to put oneself in the time and place of the author to understand the humor and mores of the day. I found the first part (book) more enjoyable than the second. The copious footnotes were just a distraction for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don Quixote Miguel De Cervantes Saavedra's classic novel recalling the story of Don Quixote, a madman who believes he is a knight, and his servant Sancho. The two of them lead onto many adventures, including the famous attacking of the wind-mills, making this story a classic in today's literature. I'd recommend this book for anyone who likes adventure, and comedy.
