A world classic, Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes has been called the first and greatest of all modern novels. First published in 1605, this adventure tale brings to life two of literature's most beloved characters, Don Quixote, an eccentric Spanish country gentleman, and errant knight from the region of La Mancha in central Spain, and his faithful sidekick, and squire, Sancho Panza. Obsessed with the chivalrous ideas touted in books he has read, Don Quixote decides to take up his lance and sword to defend the helpless and destroy the wicked. After a failed adventure, he sets out on a second one with Sancho in tow. Together they roam the world and haunt listener's imaginations as they have for nearly four hundred years.
