The impression is of abundant intelligence poured into a vessel whose aim is not tidy scholarship but joyous insight. Book lovers will relish this expansive and generous tome. This enjoyable book, a fast and fun read, informs us deeply about [Don Quixote]. As such, it is a model work of criticism. It sends us back to the original work, eager and informed and moved to reread it or read it for the first time.--Tim Redman Stavans brings infectious enthusiasm and penetrating scholarship to this lively investigation of a grand novel and its readers. A combination of celebration, meditation, and quest, Stavans's book is bound to please el Quijote's devoted readers and win new fans. Bold, imaginative, and deeply learned.... Stavans, one of our most gifted scholars of Hispanic literature, has arrived to narrate the tale of how modernity was birthed amid the whirl of windmills and all those chasing them.--Henry Louis Gates Jr., Alphonse Fletcher University Professor, Harvard University A masterly history of Don Quixote that approaches the book from multiple angles: literary, historical, cultural, linguistic, and personal. Ilan Stavans has given us a compelling, readable, and often humorous portrait of the book and its author.--Laila Lalami, author of The Moor's Account In this sparkling narrative, Ilan Stavans takes us on an exploration of a novel he reveres.... A fascinating, deeply enjoyable read.--Jon Lee Anderson, author of Che Guevara: A Revolutionary Life Ilan Stavans, like Cervantes, tells stories of errantry: of his own travels with and through the book, of El Quijote's journey across and around the world, of the characters' voyages through the imaginations of creators and re-creators. The result is as engaging, funny, readable, and illuminating as the book it's about: an idiosyncratic yet amazingly comprehensive companion, which all readers of El Quijote will want.--Felipe Fern ndez-Armesto, author of Millennium: A History of Our Last Thousand Years and 1492: The Year the World Began

Reseña del editor:

2015 marks the four hundredth anniversary of the publication of the complete Don Quixote of La Mancha-an ageless masterpiece that is unusually fertile and endlessly adaptable. Flaubert was inspired to turn Emma Bovary into "a knight in skirts". Freud studied Quixote's psyche. Twain was fascinated by it, as were Kafka, Picasso, Nabokov, Borges and Welles. The novel has spawned ballets and operas, poems and plays, films and video games, and even shapes the identities of nations. In Quixote, Ilan Stavans, one of today's pre-eminent cultural commentators, explores these many manifestations. Training his eye on the tumultuous struggle between logic and dreams, he reveals the ways in which a work of literature is a living thing that influences and is influenced by the world around it.
