Download and read online Don Quixote in PDF and EPUB Don Quixote is a Spanish novel by Miguel de Cervantes. It follows the adventures of Alonso Quixano, an hidalgo who reads so many chivalric novels that he decides to set out to revive chivalry, under the name Don Quixote. He recruits a simple farmer, Sancho Panza, as his squire, who often employs a unique, earthly wit in dealing with Don Quixote's rhetorical orations on antiquated knighthood. Don Quixote is met by the world as it is, initiating such themes as interextuality, realism, metatheatre, and literary representation. Don Quixote is considered the most influential work of literature from the Spanish Golden Age and the entire Spanish literary canon. As a founding work of modern Western literature, and one of the earliest canonical novels, it regularly appears high on lists of the greatest works of fiction ever published. In a 2002 list, Don Quixote was cited as the "best literary work ever written". The novel's structure is in episodic form. It is written in the picaresco style of the late 16th century, and features reference other picaresque novels including Lazarillo de Tormes and The Golden Ass. The full title is indicative of the tale's object, as ingenioso (Spanish) means "quick with inventiveness"[4] marking the transition of modern literature from Dramatic to thematic unity. The novel takes place over a long period of time, including many adventures all united by common themes of the nature of reality, reading, and dialogue in general. The contrasts between the tall, thin, fancy-struck, and idealistic Quixote and the fat, squat, world-weary Panza is a motif echoed ever since the book’s publication, and Don Quixote's imaginings are the butt of outrageous and cruel practical jokes in the novel. Even faithful and simple Sancho is unintentionally forced to deceive him at certain points. The novel is considered a satire of orthodoxy, veracity, and even nationalism. In going beyond mere storytelling to exploring the individualism of his characters, Cervantes helped move beyond the narrow literary conventions of the chivalric romance literature that he spoofed, which consists of straightforward retelling of a series of acts that redound to the knightly virtues of the hero.

Download and read online Don Quijote de la Mancha Primera parte in PDF and EPUB En la historia de la literatura universal hay unas pocas obras que practicamente atesoran las estanterias de cualquier biblioteca occidental, por modesta que sea. Entre ellas se encuentra El Quijote, junto a la Biblia, La Divina Comedia, o algunas de las piezas mas celebres de Shakespeare, como Hamlet u Otelo. De hecho, El Quijote es, despues de La Biblia, la obra que mas se ha editado y traducido a lo largo de la historia. Cervantes publico la primera parte de El Quijote a comienzos de 1605, con el titulo El ingenioso hidalgo don Quijote de la Mancha, y solo en 1615 apareceria la Segunda parte del ingenioso caballero don Quijote de la Mancha. Desde su publicacion, la obra se percibio como una autentica desmitificacion del por entonces consagrado genero de la novela de caballerias. Pero la mirada burlona y critica de Cervantes trasciende las singularidades de su epoca: hoy su retrato de la condicion humana, en todo su esplendor y miseria, puede conmovernos o hastiarnos, pero sin duda sigue representandonos.
