    Don Quixote and his squire, Sancho Panza, Illustration by Gustave Doré

    is a novel by Miguel de Cervantes. The book was published in two parts (1605 and 1615). It was first written in Spanish. Soon afterwards it was translated to English by Thomas Shelton. It is considered by many scholars to be the first modern novel.[] The main character, Don Quixote, is a paragon of chivalry, but in a deeply flawed and impractical way. Don Quixote is so influential as a character that the word "quixotic" is used to describe his type of behavior.

    The story is about Alonso Quixano, a rich middle-aged man. Quixano, having read many tales about chivalry and knights, goes crazy and believes that he is a knight named Don Quixote. He rides around the country with his squire, Sancho, having adventures. He believes his adventures are real, but everyone else laughs at him.

    One of the most famous stories in the book is Don Quixote's fight with windmills. He sees some windmills and thinks they are giants. When he rides to fight with them, he is knocked off his horse. Sancho tells him they are only windmills, but Don Quixote does not believe him. He is sure a magician changed windmills into the giants to hurt him.

    At the end of the book, Alonso Quixano returns home, hurt badly. He becomes sane again, then dies.

    Doré, Gustave: Don Quixote and Sancho Panza Entertained by Basil and Quiteria

    Don Quixote and Sancho Panza Entertained by Basil and Quiteria, oil on canvas by Gustave Doré, c. 1863; in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City.

    The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, Gift of rs. William A. McFadden and Mrs. Giles Whiting, 1928, (28.113), www.metmuseum.org

    As part one opens, an aging minor nobleman named Alonso Quixano, enamoured by chivalric romances, sets out from his home village of La Mancha on a quest for adventure. Christening himself Don Quixote, he recruits peasant Sancho Panza to be his squire, promising him an island to govern at the completion of their journey. The pair stumble into a series of comedic misadventures in which Quixote imagines the mundane world of the Spanish countryside as something more exciting and dangerous. In one memorable episode, he attacks a row of windmills, believing them to be gigantic knights. (This is the source of the common phrase “tilting at windmills” to mean attacking imagined enemies.)

    The March sisters, Beowulf, and even Tweedledee and Tweedledum are just some of the most enduring characters ever created. See how much you know about great literary figures.

    Quixote evades attempts by friends and countrymen to safely bring him back home, while proving himself, despite his obvious madness, to be good and honourable, and winning Panza’s admiration and devotion. After numerous humiliations, he finally casts aside his illusions, returns home, and dies.

    Don Quixote is considered by literary historians to be one of the most important books of all time, and it is often cited as the first modern novel. The character of Quixote became an archetype, and the word quixotic, used to mean the impractical pursuit of idealistic goals, entered common usage. Many 20th-century film, television, and stage adaptations of Don Quixote’s story were produced, notably the Broadway musical Man of La Mancha (1965) by Dale Wasserman, Mitch Leigh, and Joe Darion, source of the well-known song “The Impossible Dream (The Quest).”
