Don Quixote is one of the great masterpieces of world literature, and a rollicking, profoundly instructive adventure story in the bargain. The first great European novel, its theme of the superannuated knight setting out on his rickety horse to put a wicked world to rights, is as touching and timely today as ever it has been. Along the rocky road that leads to the truth about everything, the deluded don and his reluctant squire Sancho Panza reveal themselves as the best comic duo of them all. As brightly as it first did in 1605, Cervantes’ immortal tale shines across the centuries to remind us that good intentions should always pave the way, and never mind the consequences.
