Waterstones Says

The mother of the Western novel, Cervantes’s ever-green parody of knightly romance maps the colourful adventures of Don Quixote and his faithful servant Sancho Panza as they strive to perform acts of valour in sixteenth-century Spain.

Widely regarded as one of the funniest and most tragic books ever written, Don Quixote chronicles the famous picaresque adventures of the noble knight-errant Don Quixote de La Mancha and his faithful squire, Sancho Panza. Together they journey through sixteenth-century Spain in search of adventure, taking on spirits, evil enchanters and giants in a quest to perform acts of valour worthy of Dulcinea, his lady love.

A masterpiece of world fiction and a brilliant satire on traditional romances, Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes is not only the world's first modern novel - it is also an uproarious comedy that continues to delight readers today.

This Macmillan Collector's Library edition of Don Quixote is translated by the acclaimed J. M. Cohen and features an afterword by writer and journalist Ned Halley.

“Surprisingly good”

I loved the way the story was written. The diary format actually made me draw my curtains in case dracula was waiting for me...
It is a lot better than the modern take on vampires. Twilight does not beat this classic.

“The Spanish Classic”

This book is a long one at 940 pages, though some of this is taken up by sonnets and the prologue to the second part of the book. The version is very readable with the notes enhancing the understanding of what is... More
