Overview

La gran obra del Quijote se considera como una crítica de los llamados libros de caballería, que abundaban en su época, llenos de aventuras fantásticas. También se considera como una simbolización del idealismo, representado por Don Quijote, frente al materialismo de Sancho Panza. La vida que reproduce Cervantes en sus obras es alegre, graciosa y dramática, a la vez que sana y optimista, a pesar de las vicisitudes de su existencia.

Esta edición del Quijote, preparada y anotada por Martín de Riquer, de la Real Academia Española, y reciéntemente galardonado con el Premio Nacional de las Letras, sigue el texto de la primera de las ediciones conocidas, la de Madrid del año 1605, impresa por Juan de la Cuesta, para la primera parte, y el de la de 1615, para la segunda. Martín de Riquer, respetando la contextura de los vocablos típicos del autor y de la época, ha regularizado totalmente la ortografía y la puntuación y ha añadido unas notas que procuran aclarar cuantos aspectos podrían no ser comprendidos por un lector actual de formación 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 comprensión de la gran novela y hacer fácil su lectura a un sector amplio del público.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
A translator of Horace, Balzac, Rabelais, and Salvador Espriu, as well as a theorist (The Art of Translating Prose, Pennsylvania State Univ. Pr., 1994), Raffel (Univ. of Southwest Louisiana) undertook the formidable task of translating Cervantes's masterpiece because he was uncomfortable recommending any of the existing translations. There are some real differences here. Raffel has junked the traditional transcription of Cide Hamete, the pseudoauthor, in favor of the less "colonialist" and more authentic Arabic, Sidi Hamid. Proper names that contain puns are explained within square brackets, and footnotes are kept to a minimum. A more vernacular style reigns: The blow on the neck and the stroke on the shoulder that dub Don Quijote a knight are, respectively, a "whack" and a "tap." The women at the inn, usually called "wenches," are "party-girls" or "whores." Sancho dreams that his "old lady" will someday be a queen and that his "kids" will be princes. In the proofs, "Castile" has been misspelled as "Castille," an oversight one would hope to see corrected in the final book. This is a lively alternative to the wide assortment of truly old-fashioned translations. Recommended.-Jack Shreve, Allegany Community Coll., Cumberland, Md.

    dry man of La Mancha

    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.

    Don Quixote de la Mancha

    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.

    The first great novel of the Western world

    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.
