ITALIAN DESCRIPTION:
Edizione integrale. Frutto del disinganno e dell’abisso che l’epoca ha scavato fra realtà quotidiana e grandezza imperiale, il Don Chisciotte è unanimemente annoverato tra i classici della cultura occidentale. Nata dalla fantasia di Miguel de Cervantes, mentre era rinchiuso nel carcere di Siviglia, la storia del cavaliere errante e del suo fido scudiero Sancho Panza, che si svolge durante il regno di Filippo III di Spagna, ci induce a percorrere un itinerario al tempo stesso cavalleresco, etico, letterario, sociale e sentimentale. In una miscela dei generi narrativi in voga, Cervantes supera il canone letterario, la norma unitaria, l’esclusione di temi e realtà, per comporre un mondo in cui nulla di umano è estraneo alla sua sensibilità. Sfortunato e grande scrittore, Cervantes ha lavorato sul linguaggio componendo il primo romanzo moderno e al tempo stesso portando a maturità una lingua che si sarebbe poi diffusa oltremare, grazie alla vitalità che ha saputo darle il serrato dialogo tra il cavaliere e lo scudiero, eroi strampalati e umanissimi.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION:
Complete and unabridged, "The Ingenious Nobleman Sir Quixote of La Mancha", or just "Don Quixote" is a Spanish novel by Miguel de Cervantes. Published in two parts, in 1605 and 1615, Don Quixote is the most influential work of literature from the Spanish Golden Age and the entire Spanish literary canon. As a founding work of modern Western literature, it regularly appears high on lists of the greatest works of fiction ever published. The story follows the adventures of a noble (hidalgo) named Alonso Quixano who reads so many chivalric romances that he loses his sanity and decides to become a knight-errant (caballero andante), reviving chivalry and serving his country, under the name Don Quixote de la Mancha. He recruits a simple farmer, Sancho Panza, as his squire, who often employs a unique, earthy wit in dealing with Don Quixote's rhetorical orations on antiquated knighthood. Don Quixote, in the first part of the book, does not see the world for what it is and prefers to imagine that he is living out a knightly story. Throughout the novel, Cervantes uses such literary techniques as realism, metatheatre, and intertextuality.
