Description


Edith Grossman's definitive English translation of the Spanish masterpiece. Widely regarded as one of the funniest and most tragic books ever written, Don Quixote chronicles the adventures of the self-created knight-errant Don Quixote of La Mancha and his faithful squire, Sancho Panza, as they travel through sixteenth-century Spain. You haven't experienced Don Quixote in English until you've read this masterful translation.

This P.S. edition features an extra 16 pages of insights into the book, including author interviews, recommended reading, and more.

About the Author


Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra (1547 -1616) Es considerado la maxima figura de la literatura espanola y universalmente conocido por haber escrito Don Quijote de la Mancha, que muchos criticos han descrito como la primera novela moderna y una de las mejores obras de la literatura universal. En 1605 publica la primera parte del Quijote, pero el exito dura poco. En sus ultimos anos publica las "Novelas ejemplares" (1613), el "Viaje del Parnaso" (1614), "Ocho comedias y ocho entremeses" (1615) y la segunda parte del Quijote (1615). El triunfo literario no lo libro de sus penurias economicas. Dedico sus ultimos meses de vida a "Los trabajos de Persiles y Segismunda" (de publicacion postuma, en 1617). Murio en Madrid el 23 de abril de 1616 y fue enterrado de caridad.
