One of the world's great novels, Don Quijote chronicles the adventures of that bumbling, infinitely compassionate knight, Don Quijote, and his shrewdly simple squire, Sancho Panza, in all their splendiferous humor. Part parody and part cautionary tale, Don Quijote is a literary masterpiece.
Award-winning translator Burton Raffel presents an accurate, consistent, and fluid translation modeled closely on the original Spanish. More than any of its predecessors, this masterful translation mirrors Cervantes' intentions for his novel. Raffel comes as close as possible to re-creating the inimitable style of Cervantes' prose.
