Publisher's Summary

Quixotic is a word that the dictionary defines as "extravagantly chivalrous or romantic; visionary...." and that is a fitting definition, indeed, for this charming retelling of Don Quixote, the 17th-century Spanish classic by Miguel de Cervantes, now updated for the modern listener. The gallant and fragile Quixote will touch listeners, as will his faithful squire Sancho Panza and the tragically beautiful heroine of the gentle Don’s chivalries, the fair Dulcinea.

Don Quixote is rightfully noted to "....move to pity rather than ridicule, and to tears as well as laughter. And herein lies its chief claim to greatness - that it seems to have been written not for one country nor for one age alone, but to give delight to all humankind."

Great way in

This adapted version is a great way to get into a formidable classic and enjoy the experience. I am not an expert of course but I think I understand the timelessness of the story and the personality revealed. I can converse intelligently about the themes.
