The following content was provided by the publisher.
A superlative work of world literature, Miguel de Cervantes's classic novel is a story about the human spirit. His characters Don Quijote and the loyal Sancho Panza, an idealist and a dreamer, have transcended the pages of the novel to become iconic figures in their own right. Illustrated 19th-century French artist Gustave Dore's intricate and imaginative engravings, which often are said to have put a face on Don Quijote, this luxurious box set of the two volumes of "Don Quijote de la Mancha commemorates the 400th anniversary of the book's publication.

About the author

Biography of Cervantes Saavedra, Miguel de

Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, born in Alcala de Henares, Spain, in 1547, was the son of a surgeon. In 1585, a few months after his marriage to Catalina de Salazar, Cervantes published his first major work as an author, the pastoral novel La Galatea which was poorly received. Cervantes became a tax collector in Granada in 1594, but was imprisoned in 1597 due to money problems with the government. Folklore maintains that while in prison, Cervantes wrote his most famous novel, Don Quixote, which was an immediate success upon publication in 1605. After several years of writing short novels and plays, Cervantes was spurred to write the sequel to Don Quixote in 1615 when an unauthorized sequel appeared to great acclaim.

Don Quixote is considered the defining Spanish literary contribution. It is humorous, bawdy, and human, pitting one man's loyalty to tradition and faith against the world's harsh progress. Though Cervantes' sequel was rushed and flawed, Don Quixote remains a powerful symbol that has endured to present times in many forms. Cervantes died on April 22, 1616, at the age of 69.

Book description

The objective of this edition of the Quixote is, on one hand, to serve as an initiation to those who approach for the first time this monumental novel through an anthology covering the best passages, contributing therefore one complete vision of the totality of the work. And on the other hand, to help High School and College students understand the Quixote better thanks to its footnotes, to an analysis on the work, a section on Cervantes and his time, opinions about the Quixote, a chronological picture and a well taken care of bibliography.
