    11 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 671 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

    "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."
    Don Chisciotti and Sanciu Panza by Giovanni Meli( Book )
    5 editions published between 1986 and 2002 in English and held by 96 libraries worldwide
    El Quijote en América by Friedhelm Schmidt-Welle( Book )
    4 editions published in 2010 in Spanish and held by 78 libraries worldwide
    "La novela Don Quijote forma parte de la herencia común de España y Latinoamérica más que cualquier otra obra española. Difícilmente se encontrará a un autor hispanoamericano que no haya dado su parecer sobre el Quijote, la novela o su creador, o que no se haya aproximado, aunque sólo simbólicamente, al caballero de la triste figura. Aunque el camino del Quijote por América Latina difiere de su itinerario por España, aquel forma una parte importante e integrante de la recepción del Quijote. ¿La Mancha, en verdad, adquirió todo su sentido en las Américas¿, dice Carlos Fuentes destacando así la relevancia de la contribución latinoamericana al debate sobre el Quijote. Teniendo en cuenta que la recepción del Quijote en América Latina ofrece un vasto panorama de más de 400 años de historia intelectual latinoamericana, sorprende que hasta hoy la crítica se haya ocupado relativamente poco de esta temática compleja y sumamente importante. El presente volumen reúne trabajos de especialistas procedentes de varios países de Europa y de las Américas, artículos que abarcan la recepción del Quijote desde los primeros textos de la época colonial hasta la literatura y el cine más reciente. El libro muestra el estado actual de las investigaciones sobre la recepción del clásico en América Latina."--Publisher's website

    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
