It was with considerable reluctance that I abandoned in favour of the present undertaking what had long been a favourite project: that of a new edition of Shelton's Don Quixote, which has now become a somewhat scarce book. There are some-and I confess myself to be one-for whom Shelton's racy old version, with all its defects, has a charm that no modern translation, however skilful or correct, could possess

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We're all DQ Trying to write a review of DQ is like trying to chew off your own teeth - we in the modern world are so influenced by this book (and don't even know it) that's impossible to analyse it, much like Hamlet. We think we're reading it, but it's reading us; we think we're judging it, but it's judging us.

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.
