Don Quixote (auf englisch) sehr schön;
das sollten alle mal probieren: ein englisches Buch lesen! mit dem Kindle kann man mit einem als Standard installiertem Wörterbuch eine schnelle Übersetzung einzelner Wörter erreichen;

ein Klassiker in gehobener Sprache; es handelt sich um eine Satire, da es damals schon keine Ritter mehr gab;

HASH(0x96e6a654) von 5 Sternen Kindle free version: how does it compare? 25. Juli 2012
Von John L Murphy - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
It appears the brave volunteers at Project Gutenberg have fixed their version. The one I downloaded to a new Kindle Touch works fine, table of contents and all. Earlier reviewers complained but I cannot find any faults with my free version. (It's also at gutenberg-dot-org as @ 1.3 mb.) Amazon lumps many editions of public domain works together in different media and versions now, which I find frustrates those of us looking for audio- or e-book versions to evaluate.

John Ormsby's 1880s translation--also used in the Great Books series, I note--does not seem that antiquated. I sampled Edith Grossman, John Rutherford, and Burton Raffel's recent translations, and there's subtle differences rather than dramatic ones with Ormsby. He may opt for a more polite diction, but he tries to convey the tone of what's mimicking old-fashioned storytelling, after all.

I had read in college the Signet abridgement by Walter Starkie. Tom Lathrop's new reconsideration of this fittingly erratic text that replaces that publisher's edition seems to capture the old spirit of this complicated satire. It appeared to--or Cervantes pretends to let it--get out of control as its success spawned imitation by, and confusion for, all. (Lathrop documents this well--his translated text without the necessary Signet editorial material can be seen online at the Cervantes Project at Texas A+M.)

It took a while to re-read this. The first book unfolds with embedded novellas, chivalric tales of love that play against the sillier ones the Don believes and which Sancho Panza mocks. It's much slower after the initial episodes that bear the most acclaim. (I noticed a sudden and total fall-off in the Kindle annotations others had left!) But, the second book, written years later, amps up the energy and the intertextuality, as the Cide's tale told via the narrator clashes eventually with the sub-par competition of an imposter! The Don, Sancho, and their chroniclers enter "real" 17c Spain.

Cervantes takes on the critiques of Book One well, and it's fun to see how the novel even as invented here argues against its own suppositions. The tale, of course, is full of such clashes of fiction and reality. A surprising amount of abuse is heaped on our protagonists, and this "humor" appears to have worn more thin in centuries since, again a shift to a more modern sensibility that can "feel" the blows and insults suffered more deeply. It ends in a moving deathbed scene, to boot.

The balance between the tone used by Cervantes five centuries ago in parodying medieval romance needs to be acknowledged, and the need for an older register, as well as the post-modern before the modern existed upheavals within the unraveling narrative may test our patience. The joke may wear more thin than we recall. It's a cruel age, as the superhuman feats and bouts of chivalry leave "real" bruises in this telling. But this novel, which Faulkner re-read every year, remains an amazing feat that its author--as with much good art--might never have intended when he began it and worked on it and left it aside and returned to it...memory can be faulty! A fitting reminder for anyone contemplating the protagonist's fate and its author's lessons.

HASH(0x96e6aa5c) von 5 Sternen Edition I downloaded not hyperlinked 9. Dezember 2011
Von R. Holmes - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Note that the reviews shown here are for various different Kindle and physical book editions of Don Quixote. In particular, the Kindle edition I downloaded does NOT have a hyperlinked table of contents, even though one of the reviews here says it does -- that's a review of a different Kindle edition, but Amazon just jams all these different editions together for review purposes. The edition being reviewed is shown at the top of the review. I do not recommend this edition.

HASH(0x96e6a864) von 5 Sternen a great classic story 21. April 2014
Von 18D - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Cervantes wrote at about the same time as Shakespeare, and was as well known and respected during the 17th century. Many of the names of characters in his work have become virtual descriptions of the type of person who is described, even in English literature. It was interesting while reading Don Quixote to essentially know what sort of personal characteristics the character being described was going to have just by reading his name. This is not a novel as we think of novels (this is well before the novel was known as a type of literature) and is from a time where (if it was written down then) most people thought it was true, no matter how crazy. So a story about a knight who had an adventure that spanned a large geographical range might be thought to be an actual event (history) by some people even though the story have been written as a fantasy. This is the story of a relatively rich man who is old and disappointed that his life has been uneventful and wishing that he had been an adventuresome knight like the ones he reads about in his "histories".

HASH(0x96e6aa98) von 5 Sternen A classic 6. September 2011
Von thephoenixking - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I am a huge fantasy fan. Medieval through modern day fantasy. But until recently I hadn't had the joyous opportunity to read Don Quixote. Anyone who enjoys a good story, witty comedy and especially spoofs will enjoy this book. This version of the book, as far as i know, is a very good translation and much of the old English type of language is left out so it is a fairly easy read.
This is a definite add if you want your library to be complete.

HASH(0x96e6ae88) von 5 Sternen Please Read This! 30. Mai 2013
Von G. Whiz - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
John Ormsby Kindle FREE Edition

Please BUY a decent version of this book for your Kindle!

This John Ormsby Kindle FREE Edition isn't what you want. There are several editions that aren't too expensive and you'll enjoy them. I have the Penguin Classics edition (the actual book) and will buy it again for a re-read on my Kindle.

This book is too good to spend time reading this version for Kindle.

IF you are one who likes to compare translations then Ormsby's is supposed to be a decent translation. I'm not a purist and I don't care for this translation nor for the Kindle formatting on this edition.
