A superlative work of world literature, Miguel de Cervantes's classic novel is a story about the human spirit. His characters Don Quijote and the loyal Sancho Panza, an idealist and a dreamer, have transcended the pages of the novel to become iconic figures in their own right. Illustrated 19th-century French artist Gustave Dore's intricate and imaginative engravings, which often are said to have put a face on Don Quijote, this luxurious box set of the two volumes of "Don Quijote de la Mancha commemorates the 400th anniversary of the book's publication.

From AudioFile:

Transportado por su extensa lectura sobre las hazañas de los "caballeros andantes", Don Quijote, decide salir en busca de las aventuras que le han embelesado. Ahora como "caballero andante" se adjudica el seudónimo de "El caballero de la triste figura". Con fluidos diálogos y el característico acento castellano, los actores sin ser españoles, logran expresar virtuosamente, los cautivadores y fantásticos diálogos, que pueden enamorar a los escuchas no nativos de este idioma. La voz de Don Quijote en ocasiones es firme con postura de hombre maduro. La música de fondo conserva una calidad sobria y con agradables sonidos ambientales, escuchando incluso los galopes de caballos, ofrecen una lectura placentera. M.B.M.

[ENGLISH TRANSLATION]--Transported by his extensive readings of the exploits of "seeking gentlemen," Don Quijote decides to travel in search of the adventures that have enraptured him. Thus transformed, he anoints himself with the pseudonym "The Sad-Figured Knight." With flowing dialogue (Spanish-speaking novices beware) in the characteristic Castilian accent, non-Castilian actors capture the engaging and fascinating prose, as well as attract readers new to Cervantes. The work is presented as a drama with an individual performer for each character. Quijote's deep androgynous voice dominates above that of his groom, Sancho, and all the others. The background music preserves the story's solemn tone, and clever sound effects like galloping hoofbeats produce an outstanding audio experience.
