The conclusion to Cervantes' masterpiece, Don Quijote. Don Quixote is a seminal text that gives rise to both the realistic and the self-conscious novel. Published by Miguel de Cervantes in two parts—1605 and 1615—it weaves a story of a man obsessed with a world and a time lost to him. Deluded by tales of chivalry, Alonso Quixano dons an antiquated suit of armor, mounts a bedraggled horse, employs a pudgy peasant squire, and sets off on a grand adventure of enlightenment and heartache as "Don Quixote de La Mancha." The book is at once a study of the nature of humanity and of the production and consumption of fiction. Don Quixote has been studied, translated, and extolled for centuries, and this edition, assembled by seasoned scholar-teachers Parr and Fajardo, has been prepared with the North American classroom student in mind. Complete with prefaces by each editor, footnotes throughout, a glossary, and critical commentary at the end of each part, this edition clarifies many of the historical, literary, mythological, and biblical allusions Cervantes used in his story and opens the author's world to the reader, enriching the text and its allusions. This classroom-tested and pedagogically sound edition is entirely in Spanish, eschewing code switching. It is the best available for North American students of Don Quixote, both Anglophone and Heritage speakers of Spanish.
