Geïllustreerd, Literatuur - Aantal: 4 - Boek

A lovely period volume of this remarkable novel of chivalry and novel of the then budding modern era.

This book is a parody of medieval customs and chivalric ideals, and a critique of social structures of a rigid Spanish society considered as absurd.

Don Quixote is a major milestone in literary history and the interpretations given are multiple, pure comedy, social satire, political analysis. It is considered one of the most important novels of world literature and as the first modern novel..!

The main character, Alonso Quichano, is at the origin of the Don Quixote archetype, a generous and idealist character standing against injustices.
