Synopsis:

The best-known book in Spanish literature, telling the story of the adventurous knight-errant and his squire Sancho Panzo, who set out to right the wrongs of the world.


Review:

"It will not be denied that the breaking point, the point where the modern world broke away laughing from this last medievalism--that the symbolic act and moment was 'Don Quixote'....I want to ask whether, if Don Quixote returned to-day with the same wild ways of knight errantry, it would not rather be the knight errant that was sensible and the world all around him that was crazy. The poor knight's mockers were in the morning of the modern world; for them a more solid science, a more subtle statecraft, were not only growing, but promising things....The rational world has turned out much more irrational than the Dark Ages....The nations have found more nonsense and nightmare in the build of guns than they ever did in the breaking of lances."

G. K. Chesterton, New York Times Book Review, 9/15/12
