Though initially published in 1605, Don Quixote is still regarded as the first great novel. In a society enduring dominant control by politics, church, and wealth, the appearance of an old and idealistic knight (Quixote) seemed ludicrous. Yet something about the man’s desire transcended his age, making him as one of most unique and endearing character in all of literature. More than a mere focus of historic literature, Don Quixote has much to say to modern men and women who feel disjointed and out of place in a hectic modern society. The lessons Quixote teaches about courage, respectful love, endurance in defeat, and friendship is as applicable now as five centuries earlier, when it caused such a sensation. Glen Pearson opens up the man’s motivations to unveil a workable model of a troubled age.
