Description

The great comic novel, which inspired the musical Man of La Mancha. According to Wikipedia, "Don Quixote, fully titled El ingenioso hidalgo Don Quijote de la Mancha ("The Ingenious Hidalgo Don Quixote of La Mancha") is an early novel written by Spanish author Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra. Cervantes created a fictional origin for the story based upon a manuscript by the invented Moorish historian, Cide Hamete Benengeli. Published in two volumes a decade apart, Don Quixote is the most influential work of literature to emerge from the Spanish Golden Age and perhaps the entire Spanish literary canon. As a founding work of modern Western literature, it regularly appears at the top of lists of the greatest works of fiction ever published."

  • A Fine Fantasy

    By Ken Nielsen
    Let the reader meet the writer, as so fine a writer is the author of Don Quixote. Reeling with imagination, this book is spun out of the finest and most well educated and informed mind as the best of writing must be. For pure enjoyment and for spice added to life, I recommend the reading of Don Quixote to those who appreciate the finer things in life.
