The immortal comedy of Don Quixote, Sancho Panza, and their chivalrous misadventures. Entranced by romantic tales of heroism and chivalry, Don Quixote goes on a delusional quest for fame and adventure as a self-proclaimed knight errant. Riding his nag of a horse and wearing a rusty old suit of armor, he roams the countryside with his loyal squire Sancho Panza. Together they encounter an array of unforgettable characters and undertake some of the most famously foolhardy exploits in literature. Widely considered one of the greatest works of fiction ever written, Don Quixote is also recognized as the first modern European novel and a classic example of the picaresque novel. Originally published in two parts, in 1605 and 1615, its iconic characters and timeless themes have inspired works of homage from generations of artists, including Pablo Picasso, Richard Strauss, and Orson Welles. This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.

A very long and suprisingly funny read. Full of gems, in regards to quotes and phrases. Speaks to philosophy of life.

Widely regarded as the wqorld's first modern novel, Don Quixote chronicles the famous picaresque adventures of the noble knight-errand Don Quixote de La Mancha and his faithful squire, Sancho Panza as they travel through sixteenth century Spain.

Short and sweet version -- believe me, when compared to the original!
