In a sleepy village in medieval Spain, a retired country gentleman spends his waking hours consuming tales of chivalry. Viewing logic, propriety or sanity as no obstacles toward fulfilling his dreams, this would-be hero reinvents himself as the Knight-Errant, Don Quixote.
He sets out across the arid open country in search of adventures accompanied only by his faithful (if skinny) steed Rocinante and his dim-witted squire and sidekick Sancho Panza. A cornerstone of Western literature, Don Quixote is regarded by many as the first example of the modern novel and the most famous book of Spanish origin.
