Excerpt: ... trembling with rage, caught the archer by the throat as well as he could with both hands, and, had he not been rescued by his comrades, he had lost his life before Don Quixote had loosed his hold. The inn-keeper, who was bound to aid and assist his brethren in office, ran immediately to his assistance. The hostess, seeing her husband again engaged in battle, raised her voice anew, and her daughter and Maritornes joined in the same tune, praying aid from Heaven and from the bystanders.

Review:

Don Quixote, a poor gentleman of La Mancha, a man of gentle and amiable disposition and otherwise sane, has had his wits disordered by inordinate devotion to the tales of chivalry, and imagines himself called upon to roam the world in search of adventures on his old horse, Rosinante, and accoutred in rusty armour, accompanied by a squire in the shape of rustic Sancho Panza --Oxford Companion to English Literature

From the Publisher:

The definitive translation of the world's greatest novel.
