'Don Quixote of La Mancha' has been called the most popular book in history after the Bible and the first modern novel. One might even say that this tragi-comic work is far more than a novel: It is a manual for life, with lessons on how to love, dream, age, and be a friend. It encourages engagement with the essential questions: Who am I? Why am I here? What is my responsibility toward others? What is the meaning of being mortal? Furthermore, it is a book about books, about the act and art of reading, and about the imagination as the engine that makes us move.
In an unnamed village in La Mancha, Spain, a nobleman named Alonso Quijano, after becoming completely consumed by the countless novels on chivalry he reads, reimagines himself as the valiant Don Quixote, and the knight and his loyal squire, Sancho Panza, set off on a series of misadventures, battling fictitious enemies for the sake of gallantry.
In the words of scholar Ilan Stavans, 'Don Quixote' is fluid, inexhaustible, and magical. For the four-hundredth anniversary of its publication and its author s death, Restless Books releases a beautiful new edition of this timeless work with a brand-new introduction from Stavans, astounding original illustrations by the artist Eko, and wealth of linked multimedia material to help introduce you to the classic s inner workings.
