Don Quixote - 49 edition

Don Quixote (ISBN10: 0679602860; ISBN13: 9780679602866)
ISBN13: 978-0679602866
ISBN10: 0679602860

Summary: ''Don Quixote is practically unthinkable as a living being,'' said novelist Milan Kundera. ''And yet, in our memory, what character is more alive?'' ----Widely regarded as the world's first modern novel, Don Quixote chronicles the famous picaresque adventures of the noble knight-errant Don Quixote de La Mancha and his faithful squire, Sancho Panza, as they travel through sixteenth-century Spain. This Modern Library edition presents the acclaimed Samuel Putnam translation of the epic
tale, complete with notes, variant readings, and an Introduction by the translator. ----The debt owed to Cervantes by literature is immense. From Milan Kundera: ''Cervan- tes is the founder of the Modern Era. . . . The novelist need answer to no one but Cervantes.'' Lionel Trilling observed: ''It can be said that all prose fiction is a variation on the theme of Don Quixote.'' Vladmir Nabo-kov wrote: ''Don Quixote is greater today than he was in Cervantes's womb. [He] looms so wonderfully above the skyline of literature, a gaunt giant on a lean nag, that the book lives and will live through [his] sheer vitality. . . . He stands for everything that is gentle, forlorn, pure, unselfish, and gallant. The parody has become a paragon.'' And V. S. Pritchett observed: ''Don Quixote begins as a province, turns into Spain, and ends as a universe. . . . The true spell of Cervantes is that he is a natural magician in pure story-telling.'' The Modern Library has played a significant role in American cultural life for the better part of a century. The series was founded in 1917 by the publishers Boni and Liver
