Don Quichot van La Mancha

Don Quichot van La Mancha by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra
By: (1547-1616)

Don Quichot van La Mancha is a classic novel that tells the story of an ordinary man who becomes so obsessed with chivalric romances that he decides to become a knight-errant himself. The protagonist, Don Quichot, sets out on a series of misadventures with his loyal squire, Sancho Panza, in tow.

One of the most striking aspects of the novel is its exploration of the thin line between reality and fantasy. Don Quichot's delusional belief in the world of knights and damsels leads him to see windmills as giants and inns as castles, much to the amusement of those around him. Yet, despite his many defeats and humiliations, Don Quichot remains steadfast in his commitment to his ideals, making him a sympathetic and complex character.

Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra's writing is both humorous and poignant, with colorful characters and plenty of satire aimed at the excesses of the age of chivalry. The novel is a rich and multifaceted work that rewards multiple readings, as it is filled with layers of meaning and commentary on the nature of honor, madness, and self-delusion.

Overall, Don Quichot van La Mancha is a timeless classic that continues to captivate readers with its blend of comedy, drama, and keen insight into human nature. It is a must-read for anyone interested in exploring the complexities of the human psyche and the power of literature to shape our understanding of the world.

Book Description:

Door het lezen van te veel ridderromans is Don Quichot zijn verstand kwijtgeraakt. Denkend dat hij zelf een dolende ridder is, verlaat hij zijn huis en begint een dwaaltocht over de wegen en het platteland van Spanje, op zoek naar avonturen. Als doel heeft hij voor ogen het rechtzetten van alle soorten onrecht, om door deze goede daden beroemd te worden. Op zijn trektocht wordt Don Quichot vergezeld door zijn buurman en dienaar Sancho Panza. (naar Wikipedia)
This is a Dutch translation and adaptation of the book: Don Quijote by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra.
