Publisher's Description

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.

Author Bio

Miguel de Cervantes (1547–1616) was one of the greatest Spanish writers. Little is known about his upbringing and education, although it is believed he was registered in the school of Spanish humanist Juan López de Hoyos, in Madrid, where he studied literature. As a young adult, Cervantes joined the Spanish military where he was severely wounded in battle. In 1575, he and his brother were captured by pirates and held captive for five years. In 1605, Cervantes published the first part of Don Quixote, which became the world’s first bestseller, and is widely regarded as the first modern novel. The second part of Don Quixote was plagiarized by a fellow writer, and in 1614, Cervantes released the real volume two of Don Quixote. Though he achieved fame from his novels, but not wealth, Cervantes remained a prolific writer throughout his life. His works also include the Exemplary Novels, La Galatea, Los Trabajos de Persiles y Sigismunda, numerous poems, and eight full-length plays.
