É El ingenioso hidalgo Don Quijote de la Mancha ↠´ Download by ¶ Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra First, an organizational note I actually read this in parallel, in the original Spanish, and in the Penguin Classics English translation by J.
M Cohen Anyone who is interested can follow my tortured progress through Book I at the link below this review, I will attempt a coherent summary of my reaction to Book I, and in the process try to justify my two star rating.
Let me start by saying that I really gave it my best shot I can t think of another book that I ve read as closely read it in Spanish AND in English Even to keep myself honest tried summarizing as I went, in deathless doggerel QUIK QUIXOTE I ve spent a month of my life with this book it s been a mild obsession Why Oh, I don t know Can we ever satisfactorily explain why we choose to give ourselves over to any specific whim I m here, in Madrid I m studying Spanish at a school that s called Don Quijote The time just seemed right And I had a strong feeling that it was going to be now or never But a coherent summary of my reaction eludes me, frankly This book alternately amused me and bored me to tears There are a couple of places where I laughed out loud But mostly I just wanted it to be over I wasn t about to quit But it felt awfully like a penance, much of the time Some random observations, for which I am forced to resort to the dreaded list of bullet items 1 The Spanish was often fun to read than the English Cervantes and Shakespeare were contemporaries down to the urban legend of having died on the same day But Spanish has changed considerably less in the intervening 400 years than English There were enough archaic words that I did feel reading the translation was a necessary check, but it was surprisingly straightforward in Spanish, and traduttori, tradittori one felt closer to the original story So I definitely enjoyed that aspect of reading the book it felt like a real confirmation that all the Spanish classes have paid off.
2 I have a good general understanding of the book s place in literary history, and so was willing to cut it some slack that is to say, not to judge it as one would a modern novel That said, I still can t avoid saying that I found it enormously clunky The first couple of hundred pages were annoyingly episodic and formulaic addled Don meets a windmills b yokels c sheep d funeral mourners take your pick is confused, through ahilarious misunderstandingbut see point 5 below attacks them, gets the worst of the dustup, and ends in the ditch 3 Things improved a little in the second half of Book I , when some of the protagonists other than Don and Sancho start to appear on a recurring basis But don t look for in depth characterization, or much character development to speak of Cervantes is no Shakespeare OK Let me repeat that for the benefit of each and every one of my Spanish teachers, though I love them dearly People you are completely fucking delusional CERVANTES IS NO SHAKESPEARE When you make this comparison, you just make me want to resort to actual physical violence I ve read Shakespeare and, dudes, CERVANTES IS NO FUCKING SHAKESPEARE There s subtlety, insight, and depth of understanding of human nature in almost any single Shakespeare play OK, Titus Andronicus is a little weird, but there are still over thirty to choose from than in this entire first volume Not to mention a superabundance of the most gorgeous language, though to be fair I can t quite fairly judge Cervantes on this score.
4 When the plot isn t being all episodic, it s not really any great shakes either Mick is altogether too heavy handed with the AMAZING COINCIDENCE method of plot resolution Man, you wouldn t believe who all happens to mosey on by the same remote Manchegan inn, just in time to tie up a dangling plot thread I dunno It all seems than a little lazy Though I guess and I feel like I m really bending over backwards to give Mick the benefit of the doubt here why is that in retroactive justification of the time I invested reading this damned book maybe I m applying modern criteria and expectations here It s not as if all of Shakespeare s plots were entirely plausible either.
5 Humor Ah, yes One of literature s great comic masterpieces Well, excuse me, if I fail to climb on this particular bandwagon I m sorry, but I just don t get it Let s be quite clear the humor, such as it is, is almost exclusively slapstick of the broadest kind If you like watching circus clowns do pratfalls, or if your dream television weekend is a Three Stooges marathon, then maybe you ll laugh like a drain But if you don t really find slapstick all that hilarious, or take vicarious pleasure in taunting and jeering at a deranged person, you will, as I was, wonder what all the fuss is about Yes I acknowledge that there is some wit in the book s initial premise a person addled by too much book reading But lemme tellya, it gets old awful quick It really does.
One goodreads reviewer tells us, with no apparent irony, that this is the funniest book he has ever read in his life A statement that can only be literally true if he is a shut in with no access to a library.
6 And on the subject of those ratings by other goodreads reviewers De gustibus non disputandum est i.
e diff rent strokes etc But really, folks, I m having a hard time swallowing it An average rating of 4.
69 102 5 star ratings Might it not be possible, just faintly possible, that we have a slight case of what one might call classic intimidation going on The perhaps unconscious fear that people may think less of one for not appreciating one of the world s designated literary classics Did all these apparently rabid Quixote enthusiasts and how can I put this delicately ACTUALLY read THE WHOLE BOOK All of it, without cheating All those pastoral poems by the love besotted shepherds The entire soporific Tale of Foolish Curiosity The limited empirical data available suggests that maybe close attention was not paid a mere 9.
9% of respondents chose the correct answer to the goodreads quiz question about the fulling hammers.
Just sayin I has my doubts.
7 Because, here s the thing Large swaths of this book are intrinsically unreadable No, I mean it You read a page Your eyes glaze over You try it again Same phenomenon Cycle and repeat I humbly submit that the stuff in which Cervantes is engaged in direct spoofing of the knight errant genre all the stuff about Amadis of Gaul, the Don s argument with the Canon, the priest s adjudication of the various volumes in the Don s library, not to mention the interminable pastoral interludes with lovelorn shepherds and damsels dressed as shepherdesses could be considered interesting only by the most desperate of graduate students in need of a dissertation topic For anyone not engaged in abstruse academic investigation it s a freaking snoozefest Did I enjoy Don Quixote, Book I Only very sporadically Do I consider it one of the world s great books Absolutely not Will I read Book II Oddly enough, probably yes But not this trip And probably not this year Let the Don lie slumbering back home in La Mancha Myself, I hope to travel to Chile in July, and Argentina in August I think that other, appealing, opportunities will arise to extend my knowledge of literature in Spanish.
So there you have it Sorry I told you that I probably wouldn t manage an entirely coherent review.
Puede sonar a invento o locura pero es la verdad Cuando estaba en 3er grado de primaria tuve un accidente, el porton del garage de mi casa me cayo encima, despues de tener un yeso en una de mis piernas no recuerdo bien cual por casi un a o completo, tuve que asistir a fisioterapia un dia mi mama llego a la casa y puso en mis manos un ejemplar de una ediccion que dio el gobierno de mi pais de Don Quijote de la Mancha, con sus dos partes y un prologo de Jos Saramago excelente, y me dijo que era uno de las mas grandes obras de la literatura, yo, inocente del mundo de la lectura lo tome y me fui a mis terapias en la pierna, desde ese dia mis terapias dejaron de ser aburridas y la gente me empezo a mirar raro porque un ni o tan peque o preferia leerl este libro que jugar con su GameBoy y se olvidaba de todo el mundo a su alrededor cuando lo hacia Con las aventuras de Don Quijote y Sancho Panza mis terapias dejaron de ser unas torturas y se hicieron mas entretenidas, es un libro excelente y con unas historias muy emocionantes y enredos divertidos Claro me costo un poco, para no decir mucho, leerlo siendo yo tan peque o asi que esta en la lista para una merecida Relectura.
