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, with its beautiful new cover design, includes John Rutherford's masterly translation, which does full justice to the energy and wit of Cervantes's prose, as well as a brilliant critical introduction by Roberto Gonzalez Echevarriá. @DonQuixote People say that sleep deprivation, isolation, and too much reading have made me loopy. But I say nay! Nay!!! I am going full-creeper and giving a girl I love a special secret nickname without her even knowing about it. I’ll call her Dulcinea. Get it? Like Dulce del Coochayyyy.

Mio caro don Chisciotte, sono passati decenni dal nostro primo incontro. Bimbetta settenne, m’accompagnasti per mano nel tuo mondo incantato. Imparai a vedere il bello grazie a te che iniziata l’avventura trasformasti in castello l’osteria. E sempre grazie a te capii che anche la più folle delle ide...

3.0 Von einem der auszog, ein Ritter zu werden
Mit grandiosem Einfallsreichtum erzählt Cervantes von den Abenteuern des verarmten Adligen, der in einer Traumwelt vergangener Ritterzeiten lebt, und seines treuen Waffenträgers Sancho Pansa. Ähnlich wie Goethes Faust für die Deutschen ist Don Quijote für die Spanier zum Sinnbild eines nationalen Ge...

Il vaut mieux gagner de quoi vivre en plaisant au plus grand nombre que gagner la gloire en ne plaisant qu'à quelques-uns.Je vis en mourant, je brûle dans la glace, je tremble dans le feu, j'espère sans espoir, je reste quand je pars.Une large et profonde rivière divisait en deux un vaste domaine. S...
