When an ageing, impoverished nobleman decides to style himself "Don Quixote" and embarks upon a series of daring endeavours, it is clear that his ability to distinguish between reality and the fantasy world of literary romance has broken down. His exploits turn into comic misadventures, in which everyday objects are transformed into the accoutrements of chivalry, peasant girls become princesses and windmills are mistaken for formidable giants, leading the hero and his squire Sancho Panza into the realms of absurdity and humiliation. Renowned for its comical set pieces, Don Quixote is a profound meditation on the relationship between truth and fiction and the morality of deception, as well as the foundation stone of the modern novel.
Don Quixote fully titled The history of the valorous and wittie Knight-Errant Don-Quixote of the Mancha. It has been translated, into more than 60 languages. The story follows the adventures of an hidalgo who reads so many chivalric romances that he loses his sanity and decides to set out to revive chivalry, undo wrongs, and bring justice to the world.
Una de las obras mas destacadas de la literatura espanola y la literatura universal. Don Quijote es un hidalgo manchego que ha perdido la razon de tanto leer libros de caballerias y, confundiendo la realidad con sus fantasias quimericas, sale de su aldea en busca de aventuras similares a las que ha leido, acompanado de su fiel escudero Sancho Panza.
