Translated by PAMotteux with Introduction and Notes by Stephen Boyd, University College, Cork Cervantes’s tale of the deranged gentleman who becomes a wandering knight, bowing to windmills and battles with sheep in the service of the Lady of his dreams, Dulcinea del Toboso, fascinated generations of readers and inspired creative artists such as Flaubert, Picasso and Richard Strauss.The tall, slim knight and his short, fat squire, Sancho Panza, found their way in movies, cartoons and even computer games.Supposed to be conceived as a parody of the most popular evasion fiction of the time, the “books of chivalry”, this precursor of the enlarged and deepened modern novel has a sophisticated, comic contradictions of human nature.During his “heroic” journey, Don Quixote meets characters from each class and the condition of prostitute Maritornes, who deserves praise for her Christian charity, with the knight of the green coat, who seems to embody some of the constraints of virtue.You will taste the greatest work of Cervantes on several levels, all imbued with a subtle irony that reaches out to include the reader and does not leave the author out of his circle.Beautiful eighteenth-century translation by Peter Motteux, recognized as one of the best, brilliantly communicates the spirit of the Spanish original.
