Don Quixote has been recognized as the first modern novel and had enormous influence on a lot of writers like Dickens, Fauklner and Melville.

It follows the story of the titular character and his squire Sancho Panza as Don declares himself a knight-errant and goes looking for adventures.

At the time the novel was written, chivalry romances had become highly popular in Spain and its monarchs were afraid of their influence on young, impressionable minds.

Don Quixote is somewhat of a parody of these knightly adventures.

As a reader, you’ll surely enjoy this classic as each episodic adventure rolls seamlessly into the next one.

The book is very dense in its initial chapters, full of footnotes but the footnotes become less frequent going forward.
