"Smollett's Don Quixote first appeared in 1755 and was for many years the most popular English-language version of Cervantes's masterpiece. However, soon after the start of the nineteenth century, its reputation began to suffer. Rival translators, literary hucksters, and careless scholars initiated or fed a variety of charges against Smollett - even plagiarism. For almost 130 years no publisher risked reprinting it.".

Complete and unabridged, Don Quixote is the epic tale of the man from La Mancha and his faithful squire, Sancho Panza. Their picaresque adventures in the world of seventeenth-century Spain form the basis of one of the great treasures of Western literature. In a new translation that “comes closest, among the modern translations, to the simple, intimate, direct style that characterizes Cervantes’ narrative,”* Don Quixote is a novel that is both immortal satire of an outdated chivalric code and a biting portrayal of an age in which nobility was a form of madness. *John J. Allen, Professor Emeritus of Spanish, University of Kentucky and Past President of the Cervantes Society of America

Winner of the New York Drama Critics Award for Best Musical, 1966 "To me the most interesting aspect of the success of Man of La Mancha is the fact that it plows squarely upstream against the prevailing current of philosophy in the theater. That current is best identified by its catch-labels--Theater of the Absurd, Black Comedy, the Theater of Cruelty--which is to say the theater of alienation, of moral anarchy and despair. To the practitioners of those philosophies Man of La Mancha must seem hopelessly naive in its espousal of illusion as man's strongest spiritual need, the most meaningful function of his imagination. But I've no unhappiness about that. "Facts are the enemy of truth," says Cervantes-Don Quixote. And that is precisely what I felt and meant."--Dale Wasserman, from the Preface. From the Trade Paperback edition.

No original manuscript of Don Quixote, nor of any otherwork by Cervantes exists, and so scholars studying this important novelhave had to rely on corrected and modernized versions of the firstprinted texts. Following his pivotal work on the compositors of thefirst editions of Don Quixote I and II, where he shows thatthe typographical and orthographic inconsistencies are the result ofspelling preferences by the early typesetters, R.M. Flores now offersCervantes scholars a complete typographical analysis of the firsteditions of Don Quixote (Part I, Madrid 1605; Part II, Madrid1615). This old-spelling edition of Don Quixote is the first everto take all the typographical and textual evidence into consideration.It provides scholars with a text closer to that of Cervantes'soriginal manuscript than any previous edition and includes: - detailed bibliographical descriptions of the copies of the firsteditions used as editor's copy; - all pertinent information concerning the editorial policy; - detailed and complete lists of all the readings replaced, set sideby side with the editorial corrections; - a text that reproduces the non-incidental seventeenth-centurytypographical and orthographic peculiarities of the first editions;and - sequential line numbering for the entire text and bibliographicaldata pertaining to the part, section or chapter, signature, and first(fifth, tenth, etc.) line of the text of the first editions.

James Montgomery's new translation of Don Quixote is the fourth already in the twenty-first century, and it stands with the best of them. It pays particular attention to what may be the hardest aspect of Cervantes's novel to render into English: the humorous passages, particularly those that feature a comic and original use of language. Cervantes would be proud. --Howard Mancing, Professor of Spanish, Purdue University and Vice President, Cervantes Society of America
