Overview

La gran obra del Quijote se considera como una cr�tica de los llamados libros de caballer�a, que abundaban en su �poca, llenos de aventuras fant�sticas. Tambi�n se considera como una simbolizaci�n del idealismo, representado por Don Quijote, frente al materialismo de Sancho Panza. La vida que reproduce Cervantes en sus obras es alegre, graciosa y dram�tica, a la vez que sana y optimista, a pesar de las vicisitudes de su existencia.

Esta edici�n del Quijote, preparada y anotada por Mart�n de Riquer, de la Real Academia Espa�ola, y reci�ntemente galardonado con el Premio Nacional de las Letras, sigue el texto de la primera de las ediciones conocidas, la de Madrid del a�o 1605, impresa por Juan de la Cuesta, para la primera parte, y el de la de 1615, para la segunda. Mart�n de Riquer, respetando la contextura de los vocablos t�picos del autor y de la �poca, ha regularizado totalmente la ortograf�a y la puntuaci�n y ha a�adido unas notas que procuran aclarar cuantos aspectos podr�an no ser comprendidos por un lector actual de formaci�n media. Para ello ha consultado el resultado de los trabajos de los principales comentaristas del Quijote, condensando el fruto de todos estos trabajos, a fin de facilitar la comprensi�n de la gran novela y hacer f�cil su lectura a un sector amplio del p�blico.

It was in 1606 when Miguel de Cervantes, a defeated man of more fifty years old, who had failed in all his purposes in life entered in the tavern when he used to pass sadly his late life and began to write the history of an imaginary figure distilled from all his wide experiences; the result was ¿Don Quijote¿ and in one only genial work he invented the modern novel and a personage for universal history. But before this, Cervantes was wound in the battle of Lepanto against the Turks losing a hand. Later was a prisoner of war in North Africa and rescued. From these, his life ever will oscillate between the poverty and the marginality. He gets a work as taxes collector in Sevilla but was jailed for supposed fraud, had several illegal sons and lately attempted to go to America to make fortune but his antecedents as a delinquent stop also this. As a writer, at first he attempted a doubtful poetry, but the ambiance of letters by then in Spain was filled with three unrepeatable masters of Spanish language wich despised Cervantes: Lope de Vega, Quevedo and Gongora, because Spain is very individual, hasn¿t had leaders as England or Germany but very refractory to governments. So, Don Quijote is a personage very own of La Mancha, an arid region in central Spain, with extreme climate, very hot and cold. D. Quijote is introspective, serious and sad at deep with a literary, but no clinical madness, masked to be acceptable by a deceptive mask of humour as probably was his maker in his late days. So is Spain and for that, Don Quijote is an Spaniard. Yes, this work was intended by then as still many times as a simple collection of comical incidents, but later was recognized the work to be a masterpiece, although Cervantes only will survive another ten years and died as he lived, in dire straits. This isn¿t of course the life and time of a writer of best sellers, and so, you can¿t read or demand speedy reading and understanding of so complicate work with so many facets and interpretations.

I believe it is generally agreed that this masterpiece of Castilian literature is an absolute must read ¿ but why not get an affordable yet quality copy of it while you're at it? Planeta has released a paperback edition worthy of hardcover binding: beautifully typographically set upon acid-free parchment beige paper to make even Jan Tischold smile from ear-to-ear. Moreover, this fine paperback includes copious notes and footnotes by a renowned scholar of the work, Miguel de Riquer, in order to assist the reader to better understand the language and culture of Cervantes' time. For those who have yet to read this masterpiece (and who can read Castilian), I would recommend this as THE paperback edition to read.

Well, I must say it really surprises me to be the first to review a novel of as much relevance as this one. 'Don Quijote' is the first and best modern novel in not just Spanish literature, but probably world literature. Full of interesting, varied, and many times comical adventures, the novel narrates the travels of a crazed but ideallistic man, in love with books about knights and ladies. The treatment of the reality-illusion dicotomy and the subject of craziness is very interesting. Additionally, the number of inserted poems and short stories enriches this outstanding book.
