The imagery present conveys all the characteristics a chivalric knight should not represent. The book is divided into two sections, the first part being the tale of adventures Don Quixote has, including the iconic scene where he fights the windmills, is knighted at the inn, and constantly defends his lady Dulcinea del Toboso, who is, in reality, a slatternly servant.

For my money, nobody has ever come close to matching the natural grace and power Putnam summoned when he pulled this one off. What cultural value and function are assigned to the novel Don Quixote today. A solid translation, perfect for students. Don Quixote brandishes his lance and charges the "giants", all the while Sancho is yelling after his master trying to tell him of his error in his perception.

That's how I came to own this version of Don Quixote. It has endured for five centuries, and everything that can be said about it has already been said--twenty times over.

And this is it: It is a priceless, peerless work of art in itself, and if it falls short in literalness, it brims with life, wisdom, genius Deeds are means toward an amorous goal; he wants to be helpful, but especially to females; chivalry, in short, is to him service to women In the end, the beaten and battered Don Quixote forswears all the chivalric truths he followed so fervently and dies from a fever.
