    Carlos Fuentes
  • "What a unique monument is this book! How its creative genius, critical, free, and human, soars above its age!"

    Thomas Mann
  • "A fluent translation-has energy and clarity-and the rhythm of the telling is compelling"

  • "Indisputably the definitive translation"

  • "Cervantes is the founder of the Modern Era. The novelist need answer to no one but Cervantes. Don Quixote is practically unthinkable as a living being, and yet, in our memory, what character is more alive?"

    Milan Kundera
