    "Smollett's Don Quixote first appeared in 1755 and was for many years the most popular English-language version of Cervantes's masterpiece. However, soon after the start of the nineteenth century, its reputation began to suffer. Rival translators, literary hucksters, and careless scholars initiated or fed a variety of charges against Smollett - even plagiarism. For almost 130 years no publisher risked reprinting it."

    Transformation : understanding the three levels of masculine consciousness by Robert A Johnson( Book )
    4 editions published between 1991 and 2009 in English and held by 506 libraries worldwide
    Presenting an original and vital model for psychological development, the brilliant and pioneering author of He, She, and We offers a new understanding of the stages of personal growth through which maturity and wholeness can be achieved. Using quintessential figures from classical literature--Don Quixote, Hamlet, and Faust--Robert Johnson shows us three clearly defined stages of consciousness development. He demonstrates how the true work of maturity is to grow through these levels to the self-realized state of completion and harmony. In Johnson's view, we all reach the stages depicted by Don Quixote, Hamlet, and Faust at various times of our lives. The three represent levels of consciousness within us, each vying for dominance. Don Quixote portrays the innocent child, while Hamlet stands for our self-conscious need to act and feel in control though we have no real connection to our inner selves. Faust embodies the master of the true self, who has gained awareness by working through the stages
    The ingenious hidalgo Don Quixote de la Mancha by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra( Book )
    10 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in English and held by 499 libraries worldwide
    "Don Quixote has become so entranced by reading chivalry romances that he determines to turn knight-errant himself. In the company of his faithful squire, Sancho Panza, these exploits blossom in all sorts of wonderful ways. While Quixote's fancy often leads him astray - he tilts at windmills, imagining them to be giants - Sancho acquires cunning and a certain sagacity. Sane madman and wise fool, they roam the world together - and together they have haunted readers' imaginations for nearly four hundred years." "With its experimental form and literary playfulness, Don Quixote has been generally recognized as the first modern novel. The book has been enormously influential on a host of writers, from Fielding and Sterne to Flaubert, Dickens, Melville, and Faulkner, who reread it once a year, "just as some people read the Bible." This Penguin Classics edition includes John Rutherford's new translation, which does full justice to the energy and wit of Cervantes's prose, as well as a new critical introduction by Roberto Gonzalez Echevarria."--Jacket

    The complete Don Quixote by Rob Davis( Book )
    7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 411 libraries worldwide
    "More than 400 years ago, Spanish author Miguel de Cervantes (1547-1616) sent his irrepressible optimist of a hero out to tilt at windmills-- and Don Quixote and his philosophical squire, Sancho Panza, still remain among the world's most popular and entertaining figures, as well as the archetypes for the tall, thin straight man and his short, stocky comic sidekick. In this terrific adaptation of the Cervantes classic, Rob Davis uses innovative paneling and an interesting color palette to bring the Knight-Errant to life. This is sequential storytelling and art at its finest, as we follow Don Quixote on his search for adventure and chivalrous quests-- and he will not be defeated by such foes as logic, propriety, or sanity"--from publisher's web site

    Don Quixote, for nogle gal, for andre genial, ser ikke verden, som den er, men som den burde være ifølge hans ridderidealer. Fulgt af sin væbner Sancho drager don Quixote ud på sin gode hest Rozinante for at rette uret, forsvare jomfruer i nød og bekæmpe troldmænd og onde riddere. Imellem hans drabelige dueller fletter der sig en lang række kærlighedshistorier, den ene mere moderne end den anden. De handler om forførelse, bedrag og forelskelse, kvinder, der løber hjemmefra, hvem de vil giftes med, for det middelalderlige aftaleægteskab er i opbrud. Folk, som don Quixote møder på sin vej, går ef
