I was assigned to read this book this year in my senior Humanities class. We were not expected to read every chapter, but once I started, I couldn't dream of skipping anything. Don Quixote, Book 1, tells the story of a man more optimistic and idealistic than any other in literature. He sets out as a "righter of wrongs and injustices" and doesn't let anything stand in his way. Book one is also incredibly funny in many parts, both physically and intellectually. Book 2, although a somewhat difficult read and much less humorous, is by far the better work of art. At first, I was apalled at the ending of the book, but I now feel that Cervantes was justified in his ending because he wanted us to mourn the absence of chivalry and hope in our world. I cannot express how much perspective this book will add to your life. Tip: If you are reading Don Quixote in English, I reccommend the Putnam translation.

The definition of classic. Dostoyevsky considered Don Quixote the most beautiful of people and I cannot disagree. Cervantes wraps all things human into one book and almost always has you feeling every emotion all at once - slapstick humor, dark tragedy, dogged optimisim, dry realism, love, insanity, poetry vs utility, and wit, tons and tons of wit. If you read the information about Cervantes life you get more out of this book. You will see that this book is written about and from its author's soul, not a thought out plot. Disfigured through war and a hostage sitting in prison for the better part of his life, Cervantes knew what it meant to be taken in by the romance of war and how it contrasts with its harsh reality. He knew what love was and how it is related to "irrationality" or a poetic insanity that makes us human.
If I was approached by an alien who asked me to give it a description of the soul of a human, this is the book I would give it. At certain times in the book I laughed and on second readings I felt sorrow over the same part.
It is written in the 1400s, but is not a difficult read whatsoever. ...

Don Quixote

Written by the author Miguel de Cervantes, during a time known as the enlightenment, this novel tells a classic tale of chivalry. But it wasn't really classic, because this book was set in a time when chivalry, and knight errantry had all but disappeared. Knight errantry is the practice of being a knight errant, or someone who wanders and aids others, following a strict code of chivalry or in this case, someone who interferes in other's affairs, as it would seem from Don Quixote's portrayal.
Don Quixote was not always of this manner of people. He was originally a regular man, who lived in a village, in the region of La Mancha, Spain, with his niece and a housekeeper. His actual name was not Quixote, but Quixada, or Quesada. He loved reading books of chivalry, and of knights, that he became obsessive. He eventually got to the point where he decided that he was going to be a knight errant. He got some armor belonging to one of his ancestors, a sword, a lance, and a helmet with a fake visor if his own creation. Having done this, he mounted his horse Rocinante, and left to wander the countryside in search of those in need. Later he gained what he called a squire, a simple peasant named Sancho Panza, who came with due to the promise of wealth
Had this been several hundred years prior to this time, it may have been more acceptable, but for someone to do this even in the late 1600's was hardly commonplace. The most interesting aspect of his quest was not this being out of place, so much as his vivid imagination.
Don Quixote's imagination, which at times was borderline insanity, was really what made this book what it is. He imagined everything from prostitutes being maidens, to windmills being giants. This imagination of his got him in to trouble numerous times, but all the time made the book more enjoyable. While those who observed him thought him to be mad, he was quite convinced of the truth of what he saw. This was especially true of Sancho Panza. Sancho was constantly trying to show Don Quixote his error. Despite Don Quixote believed himself right, and even started to convince Sancho at times.
The truth was revealed about his delusions later on, that he did most likely understand that they were false, but didn't care all the same. He wanted to escape reality, and live in a time when people were courtly and followed strict moral codes. He accomplished this by convincing himself that things were not as they appeared. And though others try to convince him of his errors, he still convinces himself of the validity of his ideas.
While a tale of chivalry may seem boring to some, this is clearly not a traditional tale. Imagine if a story of King Arthur had been set in present times, this story accomplishes this. Because Don Quixote is so out of his place in time, it seems positively ludicrous. To counter act this, Cervantes Makes the book seem more credible, by making it seem as though historians, and sages were telling it.
From the start, the book keeps the attention of the reader by telling the reader of Don Quixote's incredible encounter at an inn. This sets the reader up for what is to come. Also, while Don Quixote's apparent stupidity may aggravate the reader, it is worth reading it all the same, because it is justified, and makes more sense as the story progresses.
Despite these grievances the book is indeed truly outstanding. The description, and humor of this novel are exceptionally well done. Cervantes makes the book seem so credible that it is not hard to believe that it really happened. Cervantes uses language that while being especially formal it still gives vivid descriptions of the surroundings, down to the last detail. The characters didn't simply gather near trees, they gathered near cork trees. Along with the vivid descriptions, came humor, portrayed as being serious. When Don Quixote attacked a barber and stole his brass basin, he was so convinced that it was the Golden Helmet of Mambrino that the reader couldn't help but be amused by how seriously Cervantes told of Don Quixote wearing it on his head.
It is also good to note that there is much to gain by reading this book. Not only an intimate knowledge of the laws of chivalry is gained, but also many deeper insights. From reading Don Quixote the reader can understand what it was like at the time the novel was written, and can gain insight into what drives a person to do crazy things. The overall message seemed to be, that times have not changed for the better, and that sometimes people live in a fantasy world because of this prevailed, and should be considered a valuable lesson.
Overall this is a very meritorious book. It shows insight by telling a tale of chivalry, but not in a traditional sense. The tale it tells is of a man so convinced that he is a knight errant, that he can no longer accept reality. Others, such as Sancho, try to convince him of this, but are unsuccessful, but despite all this, he still maintains his ideas of chivalry and knight errantry.

HASH(0x972ed3c0) étoiles sur 5 A legend of wit through the ages 23 avril 2000

The Adventures of Don Quixote is a must read classic for everyone. I thoroughly enjoyed the charm and wit of Cervantes tale of misadventure of the great knight. Don Quixote's imaginary spirit and pure devotion to chivalry is a noble quality often lost in this modern day and age. I dearly loved this book, and often found myself laughing aloud at humor written ages past. The world needs more Don Quixote's indeed.

HASH(0x972ed4e0) étoiles sur 5 The Impossible Dream 8 juillet 2000
Par Gregory N. Hullender - Publié sur
Format: Poche
Anyone who's put his heart into a large, failed project, has to identify with the Knight of the Rueful Countenance and his faithful Squire. The combination of great wisdom and intelligence in most things but complete blindness when it comes to the great Quest, is common to many modern visionaries too -- not just Don Quixote. And the faithful, hardworking squire who follows him and supports him -- and tries to ignore the evidence that the great dream is really madness -- still works for the Don in countless enterprises across the world.
So even across four centuries, this book still speaks to us, and far from being a difficult read, it rolls right along -- sometimes funny, sometimes sad, and sometimes very painful, but seldom dull.
