Don Quixote (Dover Thrift Editions: Classic Novels)

“The final and greatest utterance of the human mind.” — Fyodor Dostoyevsky.

Presenting the acclaimed 1755 Tobias Smollett translation.

A founding work of modern Western literature, Cervantes’ masterpiece has been translated into more than 60 languages and the novel’s elderly knight, Don Quixote, and his loyal squire, Sancho Panza, rank among fiction’s most recognized characters. This monumental parody of chivalric romances and epic of heroic idealism presents a strikingly contemporary narrative that also reflects the historical realities of 17th-century Spain.

Notable adaptations of the Spanish novel Don Quixote include the 1965 musical play Man of La Mancha and a 1972 film version directed by Arthur Hiller and starring Peter O’Toole, Sophia Loren, and James Coco. The original production on Broadway in 1965 won five Tony Awards, including Best Musical, and has become one of the most popular musicals of all time. The classic novel is one of the most influential works of literature from the Spanish Golden Age in the Spanish literary canon.
