Don Quixote (Francusco de Robles, 1605, 1615, 1612 and 1620 (in English)

Highly regarded as the “best literary work ever written” and a book that tops most lists of greatest works of fiction, Don Quixote was originally published in two volumes (in 1605 and 1615). It is considered the most influential work of literature from the Spanish Golden Age and the entire Spanish literary canon. Don Quixote was written by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra.

Don Quicote follows the adventures of a hidalgo (a member of the Spanish or Portuguese nobility) named Alonso Quixano who has read so many chivalric romances that he lost his sanity and decides to set out to revive chivalry, undo wrongs and bring justice to the world. He takes on the name Don Quixote de la Mancha and recruits a simple farmer, Sancho Panza, to help him.
