The Story Of Don Quixote

“Don Quixote” by Miguel de Cervantes is a classic novel that follows the adventures of an aging nobleman, Alonso Quixano, who becomes so immersed in reading chivalric romances that he loses his sanity and decides to become a knight-errant named Don Quixote. Accompanied by his loyal squire, Sancho Panza, Quixote embarks on a series of absurd and comical adventures, mistaking windmills for giants and common inns for castles.

As the story unfolds, Cervantes weaves a rich tapestry that explores the contrast between Quixote’s idealized fantasies and the harsh reality around him. The novel is a satirical commentary on the nature of literature, the power of imagination, and the blurred line between sanity and madness. “Don Quixote” is celebrated for its wit, humor, and profound insights into the human condition, making it a timeless masterpiece in world literature.
