صعب أن يقيم الواحد عمل أدبي كلاسيكي مر عليه حوالي 400 سنة ويعتبر أول رواية حقيقية بالمعنى الحديث لهذا المصطلح. الذي أعرفه أني تمتعت كثيرا بقراءته, متعة القراءة الخالصة, والحكايات التي لا تنتهي, وأحيانا حكاية من داخل حكاية على طريقة ألف ليلة وليلة [ وإن كانت ألف ليلة تتفوق كثيرا في هذا الجانب], والفكاهة والسخرية اللاذعة حتى لو تكررت المواقف أحيانا, والحس الإنساني الذي يسري في العمل كله. وأيضا مثل ألف ليلة وليلة: يبدو وكأن الغرض الحقيقي من هذا العمل هو الإستمتاع بعملية الحكي نفسها, وهو ما نجده كثي...more

It's hard to make a summary of what I liked about this. Even more daring than its first part, Cervantes must deal with the release of a fake second part, and the intertextuality becomes deeper as the layers between reality and fantasy erase.

We can witness the transformation of Quixote in a "sane man" but also dwell into secondary motives like, the conformation of a government, the motives of carnival and theatrical representation in two opportunities, the way the characters seem to treat Don Qui...more

Probably the best book in the world!

Dostoevsky on Don Quixote:

'There is nothing in life more powerful than this piece of fiction. It is still the final and the greatest expression of human thought, the most bitter irony that a human is capable of expressing; and if the world came to an end and people were asked somewhere there: ‘Well, did you understand anything about

Alors que le premier Don Quichotte a été écrit par Cervantès afin de combattre les mauvais romans de chevalerie, ce deuxième tome ne s'attaque avant tout qu’à un mauvais plagiaire. Par contre, si l’adversaire est incomparablement plus modeste, les exigences du génial auteur ne diminuent pas pour autant.
En effet, malgré l’immense succès de son premier opus, Cervantès ne va pas se contenter de reproduire le même type de roman, mais pousser encore plus loin son art en donnant encore plus de précis...more

En algún lugar leí que del Quijote de la Mancha hay un "falso tomo II" de un autor denominado "Avellaneda", es gracioso porque cuentan que Cervantes se apuró a escribir el tomo II cuando supo de la existencia "del otro Quijote".

Creo que se le nota un poco a este tomo la premura, como que las cosas pasaron muy rápido, (en su escritura, quiero decir). Aunque continúa teniendo su estilo único, rebuscado y simpático.

Me gustó como resolvió algunas cosas, la lucidez del sr. Quijano antes de morir, el...more
Reid
A person is to read this 3 times in his life as explained in the Prologue by Cervantes: Early, Middle and Late Age. Those are the three phases Quixote goes through until the end of the story. This is a must read in Spanish, as most translations lose the beauty of the original language which Saavedra used.
Ruben
Muuuuy divertido y una belleza de escritura, se disfruta tanto en su estilo como en la profundidad de las ideas vertidas en las hazañas del Caballero de la Triste Figura. Lleno de consejos basados en las virtudes universales. Es imperdible esta lectura, no la dejen pasar!

Este libro me gusto tanto que hasta hoy puedo recordar algunas estorias y memorias del.

Uno de los libros más importantes de la Literatura universal. Precisamente por eso, merece ser leído con ojos de niño, teniendo muy presente que el principal propósito con el que Cervantes escribió toda su Odisea quijotesca fue el de entretener y hacer reír al lector y para eso no hay que tomárselo tan en serio como nos han querido hacer creer. Una vez terminado se puede descubrir que sus niveles de lectura son prácticamente infinitos. Por eso es uno de los mayores clásicos de la Literatura: por...more

The second and final book of "Don Quixote" earns the same overall rating as the first, but with some different pros and cons. I do consider this to be a sequel to the first "Don Quixote" rather than merely a continuation--it was published ten years after Part I, it has different themes, supporting characters, and story arc.

The characterizations are stronger in this volume, both of the leading characters Don Quixote and Sancho Panza, and of supporting characters as well. The book gets a bit deepe...more

If I had to choose which volume I enjoyed the most at this moment I would the second volume. yet. to be honest, it took me over a decade to finally sit down to read it. I was in my early twenties when I read the first vol. and I read it like it was. I read it for entertainement and I laughed so much and I enjoyed it very superficially without getting technical nor profound. that was 10 yrs ago. and I was difficult for me to grab the second vol. and read it right through. It wasn't the same story...more

Para mi, el mejor de los dos tomos, a mi el Quijote siempre me ah hecho sufrir, pero lo quiero muchísimo, muy divertido. La redacción buenísima, se puede disfrutar, lleno de mucha experiencia, reflexiones y sobre todo frases muy bonitas. ☺️

Overall I enjoyed both volumes. It was pretty intriguing just for a nice fictional story with a historical perspective.

But it was really long. I mean REALLY long. 74 chapters! A lot of the themes and storylines were very repetitive. I get the sense that I should've been able to get a deeper meaning out of it. Something about reality depending on your perspective. Or maybe just don't read too much fanciful fiction. I don't know.

The big surprise for me (I don't think this is a spoiler): the whole...more

Ya está, leídas las dos partes y el remedo de Avellaneda.
Visto lo visto, no deja de sorprenderme la crueldad del autor con sus personajes: maltratados, burlados, golpeados... Da la impresión de que les tiene poco cariño, a pesar de que los defienda del plagio de Avellaneda. No sé, no me ha acabado de convencer.

incredibly humorous half a millennium old humor

No sale el primer volumen así que solo puedo poner el volumen II EL INGENIOSO HIDALGO DON QUIJOTE DE LA MANCA. También leí el primero DON QUIJOTE DE LA MANCHA.

Me sorprendió comprobar que ha medida que lo iba leyendo me gustaba cada vez más. Es un libro que recomiendo a todo el mundo. Esta editorial, en especial, está muy bien porque tiene bastantes notas a pie de página que hace mucho más fácil la lectura del libro. Si alguien se ánima a leerlo que busque una buena edición con notas a pie de pág...more

In the novel, Don Quixote de la Mancha, the writer Miguel Cervantes uses the notion of imagination to fulfill the destiny of the main character, Alonso Quejana. His role in the book plays a person who is lost in a world of fantasy because he has read many books. This character sees, what his mind and imagination creates, so much so, that he alters his sense of reality. He decided to live in the chivalric code, a knight-errantry, to help anyone in trouble and to be someone who goes around looking...more

I've finished with the first volume of Don Quixote De La Mancha and found this book quite easy and interesting to read. It's the classic adventure of a madman: the "renowned Don Quixote de la Mancha." He attacks windmills, believes a peasant girl to be a lady, and fancies that he is a knight-errant, dedicated to righting wrongs and rescuing damsels in distress. To my mind, Don Quixote is one of the greatest protagonists of the world literature ever. So I hope that the second volume is just as go...more

En realidad los leí entre 2008 y 2009. Al primero volví a leerlo en 2011 y he releído capítulos del segundo volumen. Son tan extensos, tan monumentales (con monumental me refiero al trabajo gigante de escribirlos), que creo haberlos olvidado casi por completo. En uno o dos años debería volver a ellos, así algún día puedo contarles a hipotéticos nietos que una vez, en un lugar de la Mancha cuyo nombre no quiero acordarme, leí Don Quijote de la Mancha.

Dentro al “Don Chisciotte” c’è di tutto: commedia, tragedia, satira, favola, ironia, ingenuità, racconto, banalità, aforismi, epica, mistero, storia, attualità, follia, abbozzi, razionalità, fantasia, realtà, voli pindarici e chi più ne ha, più ne metta. E’ come se fosse una specie di compendio di ogni possibile forma di espressione. Veramente bello e poliedrico. Assolutamente unico.

جلد دوم خیلی بهتر از جلد اول بود از اون داستانای عشقی جلد اول خبری نبود و کمتر حاشیه رفته بود.
Nerea Serrano
Probablemente la mejor novela escrita en la historia.
Timoteo Ponce
This is a book which opened my eyes to a ancient kind of narration, very expressive language and extensive descriptions.
At first can be a little hard to read, but after a couple of minutes it's very enjoyable.
Martin Hernandez
Por supuesto, esta obra no necesita mayor comentario. Solo diré que en la versión de la colección "Historia Universal de la Literatura" reúnen los dos tomos originales bajo un solo título.

I listened to this on audiobook. The reader was hilarious and really brought it to life. The whole thing was over forty hours of listening.
It took me a while. :)

Finally reading this after all these years and it's great. It may take you a little bit to sink in, but once you do, you'll go all the way.
Alison
have not read the whole thing, but read much of it, Spanish version in college. I think I'll go back to the Spanish version and finish sometime.

I loved this book and the one prior. It's end brought me to tears not so much for what happened as for the tale being done.
Pete Reilly
If you like writers and writing you should read it. If you have a big imagination you should read it. If not, you will probably be bored.

Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra was a Spanish novelist, poet, and playwright. His magnum opus Don Quixote is often considered the first modern novel.

It is assumed that Miguel de Cervantes was born in Alcalá de Henares. His father was Rodrigo de Cervantes, a surgeon of cordoban descent. Little is known of his mother Leonor de Cortinas, except that she was a native of Arganda del Rey.

In 1569, Cervantes...more

“[...] le terre che di per sé sono sterili e magre, concimandole e coltivandole vengono a dar buoni frutti; voglio dire che la conversazione con vossignoria è stato il concime che fu sparso sulla sterile terra del mio ingegno; la coltivazione, il tempo da che la servo e la tratto. E con ciò spero di produrre frutti in abbondanza, tali che non imbozziscano e neanche rotolino giù dai sentieri della buona educazione che vossignoria ha scavato nell'arsiccio mio intelletto.” 0 likes
