(Book Jacket Status: Jacketed)Our ceaseless human quest for something larger than ourselves has never been represented with more insight and love than in this story of Don Quixote -pursuing his vision of glory in a ?mercantile age-and his shrewd, skeptical man?servant, Sancho Panza. As they set out to right the world's wrongs in knightly combat, the narrative moves from philosophical speculation to broad comedy, taking in pastoral, farce, and fantasy on the way. The first and still the greatest of all European novels, Don Quixote has been as important for the modern world as the poems of Homer were for the ancients.Translated by P. A. Motteux

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

Well, this was a major commitment to read this one beginning to end. I'm proud of myself for getting through it all! Great read!

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!
