Summary: Don Quixote, a lanky scarecrow of a man with his withered face and lantern jaw, dons his rusty armour and mounts his ramshackle steed, Rozinante. With lance couched he still rides through our lives, followed by his potbellied squire Sancho Panza.? With these words, Walter Starkie launches the introduction to his highly esteemed translation and abridgment of Cervantes?s great classic?a book that has enchanted generations of readers throughout the world. Brimming with humor, rich in idealism and earthy common sense, vivid in its characterizations of men and women from every walk of life?nobles, priests, impassioned damsels, simple country girls, rogues, and romantics? Don Quixote , in this zestful translation, will win many new friends.
