Miguel de Cervants Saavadra was only 58 years old when Part I of his masterpiece, DON QUIXOTE, was published. A SUPERB popular romance of chivlary!
Don Quixote is considered a profound delineation of two conflicting attitudes toward the world: idealism and realism. The work has been appreciated as a satire on unrealistic extremism, an exposition of the tragedy of idealism in a corrupt world, and a plea for widespread reform. An unforgettable description of the transforming power of illusion.
Don Quixote is a country gentleman who has read too many chivalric romances. He and the peasant Sancho Panza, who serves as his squire, set forth on a series of extravagant adventures.
The addled idealism of Don Quixote and the earthy acquisitiveness of Sancho serve as catalysts for numerous humorous and pathetic exploits and incidents. Its panorama of characters and its vivid portrayal of human nature contribute to the enduring influence of Don Quixote.
