9780307475411: Don Quijote de la Mancha (Spanish Edition)

Launched simultaneously in Spain and the Americas, this work aims to divulge the great novel of Spanish Literature by means of a high quality, well-taken care of edition at a very reduced price. The book contains a prologue by Mario Vargas Llosa, an introductory text and complementary analysis by other academics, along with an extensive glossary of terms that will help readers get to know Cervantes’ language. This beautiful hardbound edition is 5 x 8 inches, 1360 pages of fine biblical Italian paper, and will be sewn at the spine with fine vegetable thread. This work constitutes, without a doubt, the most complete, serious, high quality commemorative edition.

Having an immediate success when first published 400 years ago, and with its experimental form and literary playfulness, Don Quixote has been recognized as the world’s first modern novel. Don Quixote tells the story of a middle-aged Spanish gentleman who, obsessed with the chivalrous ideals found in romantic books, decides to take up his lance and sword to defend the helpless, destroy the wicked, and win the heart of his beloved Dulcinea. Seated upon his ever so lean horse, and accompanied by the pragmatic and faithful squire Sancho Panza, Don Quixote rides the roads of Spain seeking glory and grand adventure. Along the way the duo meet a dazzling assortment of characters whose diverse beliefs and perspectives reveal how reality and imagination are frequently indistinguishable.

Product Description:

Un éxito desde el mismo momento de su publicación en 1604, Don Quijote es una obra maestra no ya de la literatura española sino de la literatura universal. Cuenta la historia de este hidalgo quien, enloquecido por la lectura de libros de caballerías, recorre España espada en mano en busca de aventura, justicia y gloria. Las múltiples interpretaciones de esta historia son, simplemente, el reflejo de su riqueza de significados y contenidos: una crítica de las novelas de caballerías, la contraposición entre el realismo y el idealismo, la primera novela moderna o una sátira de las ilusiones caballerescas. Infinitas lecturas caben en las divertidas e increíbles andanzas del ingenioso hidalgo, que reflejan la complejidad de lo humano y muestran el arte literario en su más depurada expresión.

About the Author:

Miguel de Cervantes (1547-1616) ejerció las más variadas profesiones antes de dedicarse plenamente a la literatura. Entró en Roma al servicio del cardenal Acquaviva, fue soldado en la batalla de Lepanto (1571), estuvo cinco años cautivo en Argel y ejerció como comisario real de abastos para la Armada Invencible. Tales oficios le reportaron una experiencia humana que supo plasmar magistralmente en todas sus obras. De su producción poética cabe destacar  Viaje del Parnaso (1614), un verdadero testamento literario y espiritual. En el campo teatral cultivó la tragedia, la tragicomedia, la comedia y el entremés. Pero sin duda es en el terreno de la narrativa donde Cervantes se impuso a sus contemporáneos y obtuvo logros que le valdrían el título de creador de la novela moderna, con libros como  La Galatea (1585),  El ingenioso hidalgo don Quijote de la Mancha (1605),  Novelas ejemplares (1613),  El ingenioso caballero don Quijote de la Mancha(segunda parte de su obra cumbre, 1615) y, póstumamente,  Los trabajos de Persiles y Sigismunda(1617).
