Don Quixote is a legend among fictional characters. The satirical adventures into which Cervantes throws his hero are among the most well-known in world literature, most notably the scene in which Quixote tilts at windmills, believing them to be giants. Cervantes drew from a number of classical literary sources such as Apuleius's The Golden Ass, Orlando furioso, and Tirant lo Blanch, both using them as a model for his narrative, and simultaneously satirizing the chivalrous epic. Written in two parts which were released separately, both to resounding success, Don Quixote remains today one of the most respected and treasured works of literature. Bookseller Inventory # 1679597
