About the Book

Don Quijote de la Mancha es una novela escrita por el español Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra. Publicada su primera parte con el título de El ingenioso hidalgo don Quixote de la Mancha a comienzos de 1605, es una de las obras más destacadas de la literatura española y la literatura universal, y una de las más traducidas. En 1615 aparecería la segunda parte del Quijote de Cervantes con el título de El ingenioso caballero don Quixote de la Mancha.

Don Quijote fue la primera obra auténticamente anti-romance, gracias a su forma que desmitifica la tradición caballeresca y cortés. Representa la primera obra literaria que se puede clasificar como novela moderna y también la primera novela polifónica, y como tal, ejerció un influjo abrumador en toda la narrativa europea posterior.

About the Edition

Although published nearly 400 years ago in Spanish, this parody of the chivalrous life remains amazingly familiar in translation today-perhaps from the extensive influence it has played on novelists, playwrights and even composers over the centuries, or perhaps from its eternal story of the childlike and comic view of a decayed world by a madman stuck in a golden past.
