Cervantes, Miguel de: Don Quixote. v1. 07 June 07

I don't want to take anything away from RWood for his excellently continuing series of Harvard Classics (indispensible and important work), but I, too, decided to add Don Quixote to the list of uploaded books. Don Quixote is also an important document in the development of the novel. PLUS, it's fun to read.

The novel is fully linked and, I hope, adequately and sensibly linked. (If you have any suggestions for improvement, please let me know.)

Because there are SO MANY CHAPTERS, I reluctantly decided to do away with the CHAPTER DESCRIPTORS that occur before one actually reads the book. However, they are IN THE TEXT, but at the location of the actual chapter.

This was difficult to put together: I worked on-and-off on it for two weeks, between putting together the "easy" stuff I was uploading for this site. I hope you're pleased with it.

For those who are not familiar with Don Quixote, here's something from the Wik:

"Don Quixote (sometimes spelled "Quijote") is actually two separate books that cover the adventures of Don Quixote, also known as the knight or man of La Mancha, a hero who carries his enthusiasm and self-deception to unintentional and comic ends. On one level, Don Quixote works as a satire of the romances of chivalry which ruled the literary environment of Cervantes' time. However, the novel also allows Cervantes to illuminate various aspects of human nature by using the ridiculous example of the delusional Quixote.

"Because the novel - particularly the first part - was written in individually published sections, the composition includes several incongruities. In the preface to the second part, Cervantes himself pointed out some of these errors, but he disdained to correct them, because he conceived that they had been too severely condemned by his critics."

Please let me know if there are any problems.
