This legendary tale by Miguel de Cervantes is Spain's greatest novel. The story gets underway when aging and deluded nobleman Alonso Quijano adopts the identity of wandering knight Don Quixote and sets out to perform chivalrous duties across the Spanish countryside, joined by his wizened horse, Rocinante, and dutiful "squire," Sancho Panza. Don Quixote's antics inevitably lead to considerable trouble, with Cervantes providing witty social commentary, often in the form of Sancho's unrefined observations. With its mix of humor and philosophy and the central theme of fantasy versus reality, the book is an undisputed masterpiece of world literature.
