Description
Cervantes' tale of the deranged gentleman who turns knight-errant, tilts at windmills and battles with sheep in the service of the lady of his dreams, Dulcinea del Toboso, has fascinated generations of readers, and inspired other creative artists such as Flaubert, Picasso and Richard Strauss. The tall, thin knight and his short, fat squire, Sancho Panza, have found their way into films, cartoons and even computer games. Supposedly intended as a parody of the most popular escapist fiction of the day, the 'books of chivalry', this precursor of the modern novel broadened and deepened into a sophisticated, comic account of the contradictions of human nature. Cervantes' greatest work can be enjoyed on many levels, all suffused with a subtle irony that reaches out to encompass the reader.

author2-role , "Destiny guides our fortunes more favorably than we could have expected. Look there, Sancho Panza, my friend, and see those thirty or so wild giants, with whom I intend to do battle and kill each and all of them, so with their stolen booty we can begin to enrich ourselves. This is noble, righteous warfare, for it is wonderfully useful to God to have such an evil race wiped from the face of the earth. What giants?" asked Sancho Panza. "The ones you can see over there," answered his master, "with the huge arms, some of which are very nearly two leagues long. Now look, your grace, " said Sancho, "what you see over there aren't giants, but windmills, and what seems to be arms are just their sails.", "Quixotic" is a word that the dictionary defines as "extravagantly chivalrous or romantic; visionary..." and that is a fitting definition, indeed, for this charming retelling of Don Quixote, the 17th century Spanish classic by Miguel de Cervantes, now updated for the modern reader. The gallant and fragile Quixote will touch listeners, as will his faithful squire Sancho Panza and the tragically beautiful heroine of the gentle Don's chivalries, the fair Dulcinea. Don Quixote is rightfully noted to "...move to pity rather than ridicule, and to tears as well as laughter. And herein lies its chief claim to greatness, that it seems to have been written not for one country nor for one age alone, but to give delight to all humankind.", "Unabridged Classics"--Container., "With tracks every 3 minutes for easy book marking"--Container., (OCoLC)132752522, (OCoLC)53462085, 1 online resource, 1 online resource (1 audio file (31 min.)) :digital., 1 online resource (1 audio file (36hr., 08 min.)) :digital., 1 online resource (1 audio file (3hr., 17 min.)) :digital., 1 online resource (1 audio file (4hr., 36 min.)) :digital., 1 sound media player (ca. 39.5 hr.) :digital ;9 x 6 cm. +1 set of earphones + 1 AAA battery., 1082204, 11100809Midwest Tape, LLChttp://www.midwesttapes.com, 11104931Midwest Tape, LLChttp://www.midwesttapes.com, 11272880Midwest Tape, LLChttp://www.midwesttapes.com, 11392221Midwest Tape, LLChttp://www.midwesttapes.com, 11428369Midwest Tape, LLChttp://www.midwesttapes.com, 11461412Midwest Tape, LLChttp://www.midwesttapes.com, 11470210Midwest Tape, LLChttp://www.midwesttapes.com, 11498030Midwest Tape, LLChttp://www.midwesttapes.com, 11620428Midwest Tape, LLChttp://www.midwesttapes.com, 11660346Midwest Tape, LLChttp://www.midwesttapes.com, 11678360Midwest Tape, LLChttp://www.midwesttapes.com, 11818419Midwest Tape, LLChttp://www.midwesttapes.com, 1402563698, 1467768316 (electronic bk.), 1500 - 1599, 151892851X (sound recording : hoopla Audio Book), 1596449632 (sound recording : hoopla Audio Book), 863.3, 908832, 1602525269, 1607108585 (electronic bk.), 1623958970 (electronic bk.), 1625585624 (electronic bk.), 1681959690 (electronic bk.), 1843794101 (sound recording : hoopla Audio Book), 1848704747 (electronic bk.), 1849891567 (electronic bk.), 1909438170 (electronic bk.), 33021023970897acdficCD FIC CERVANTESwf1241316cd, 33021028489158mpaPLAYAWAY FIC CERVANTEcc1686563mpp, 35 sound discs (in 2 containers) (40 hr., 30 min.) :digital ;4 3/4 in., 863/.3, 9629544695 (sound recording : hoopla Audio Book), 9781467768313 (electronic bk.), 9781518928512 (sound recording : hoopla Audio Book), 9781596449633 (sound recording : hoopla Audio Book), 9781602525269, 9781607108580 (electronic bk.), 9781623958978 (electronic bk.), 9781625585622 (electronic bk.), 9781681959696 (electronic bk.), 9781843794103 (sound recording : hoopla Audio Book), 9781848704749 (electronic bk.), 9781849891561 (electronic bk.), 9781909438170 (electronic bk.), 9789629544690 (sound recording : hoopla Audio Book), AUK classics, AUK classics., Abridged., Adventure fiction., Audiobooks., C2354Recorded Books, CD FIC CERVANTES, Case, David., Cervantes Saavedra, Miguel de,1547-1616,author., Cervantes Saavedra, Miguel de,1547-1616., Cervantes Saavedra, Miguel de,1547-1616.Don Quixote., Cervantes' tale of the deranged gentleman who turns knight-errant have found its way into films, cartoons and even computer games.

He knows intimately the joys and tragedies of life, love, and loss, and his literary masterpiece is considered one of the most influential works of literature.

As a founding work of modern Western literature, and one of the earliest canonical novels, it regularly appears high on lists of the greatest works of fiction ever published. In one such list, Don Quixote was cited as the "best literary work ever written.", Quixote,Don (Fictitious character), RGPengRGPRGPBTCTAOCLCQOCLCGOCLCQDEERPOCLCFOCLCAOCLOCLCOBYV, Read by David Case., Read by Edward de Souza., Read by Johnny Heller., Read by Kandice Stehlik., Read by Roy McMillan., Romances., Spain, Spain., Talking books., The adventures of Don Quixote, a common man from La Mancha, who has convinced himself that he is a knight. With his portly peasant squire, Sancho Panza, who recognizes his master's madness but is nonetheless captivated by promises of kingdoms and riches, Don Quixote mistakes windmills for giants and flocks of sheep for armies., The epic tale of an eccentric country gentleman and his companion who set out as a knight and squire of old to right wrongs and punish evil in sixteenth-century Spain.

Hugely entertaining but also moving at times, this episodic novel is built on the fantasy life of one Alonso Quixano, who lives with his niece and housekeeper in La Mancha.

Don Quixote has become so entranced by reading romances of chivalry that he determines to become a knight errant and pursue bold adventures, accompanied by his squire, the cunning Sancho Panza. As they roam the world together, the aging Quixote's fancy leads them wildly astray. At the same time the relationship between the two men grows in fascinating subtlety. Often considered to be the first modern novel, Don Quixote is a wonderful burlesque of the popular literature its disordered protagonist is obsessed with., Word Cloud Classics, Word cloud classics., [United States]:Andrews UK ,2010., [United States]:Author's Republic ,2016., [United States]:Interactive Media ,2012., [United States]:Lerner Publishing Group ,2014., [United States]:Mission Audio ,2010., [United States]:Naxos ,1994., [United States]:Naxos,2011., [United States]:Start Publishing LLC ,2012., [United States]:Thunder Bay Press ,2013., [United States]:Wordsworth Editions Ltd ,2013., [United States]:Xist Publishing ,2016., [United States]:Xist Publishing,2015., computerc, data file, digital, e-sp---, eAudiobook hoopla, eBook hoopla, eng, hoopla digital., https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/auk_9781849891561_180.jpeg, https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/aut_9781518928512_180.jpeg, https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/csp_9781607108580_180.jpeg, https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/ecr_9781596449633_180.jpeg, https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/iam_9781909438170_180.jpeg, https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/lpg_9781467768313_180.jpeg, https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/nax_9781843794103_180.jpeg, https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/nax_9789629544690_180.jpeg, https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/sta_9781625585622_180.jpeg, https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/vsa_9781848704749_180.jpeg, https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/xst_9781623958978_180.jpeg, https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/xst_9781681959696_180.jpeg, online resourcecr, spoken wordspw, text file, texttxt
