En el Madrid de 1615, Miguel de Cervantes publica sus Entremeses, siguiendo el estilo de Lope de Rueda quien los llamaba Pasos. El fin del dichos Entremeses es llenar los huecos en las representaciones del teatro " serio,” como la duraciOn de las obras eran muy larga, los Entremeses aligeraban la estancia del pUblico en los teatros, poco a poco dicho gEnero encontrO gran aceptaciOn por el público asistente. Los Entremeses reflejan situaciones de la vida cotidiana, basándose en el doble juego de fantasía y realidad; manejados en comedia y hechos para hacer reIr, refuerza la aceptación del público. Los Entremeses representan una lectura obligada para los jóvenes de esta Epoca, por su importancia literaria, así como por lo imaginativo de las situaciones y por que no ha dejado de estar vigente. A sus 400 aNos de su publicación la sociedad contemporánea se refleja en los Entremeses llegando a la conclusión de que el ser humano sigue siendo el mismo.Available Formats:0.5 hrs • Jul/08/2016 • Unabridged
Widely regarded as the world’s first modern novel, and one of the funniest and most tragic books ever written, Don Quixote chronicles the famous picaresque adventures of the noble knight-errant Don Quixote.Don Quixote has become so entranced by reading romances of chivalry that he determines to become a knight errant and pursue bold adventures, accompanied by his squire, the cunning Sancho Panza. As they roam the world together, the aging Quixote’s fancy leads them wildly astray. At the same time the relationship between the two men grows in fascinating subtlety. Often considered to be the first modern novel, Don Quixote is a wonderful burlesque of the popular literature its disordered protagonist is obsessed with.Available Formats:3.3 hrs • Aug/21/2014 • Abridged
Don Quixote is considered by many to be the first modern European novel, and is still one of the greatest. It is a marvelously comic study of one man’s outlandish fantasy and its consequence: Don Quixote, the old gentleman of La Mancha, takes to the roads of Spain with his faithful squire Sancho in search of adventure—and remains undaunted in the face of repeated disaster.Available Formats: Digital Rental36.1 hrs • Jun/11/2014 • Unabridged
An old man, enchanted by tales of knightly courage, puts on his rusty armour and sets out on a quest of his own. For him, the world is filled with giants, knights, and a peerless mistress. Others, such as his earthy squire Sancho Panza, see windmills, sheep, and vulgar serving girls. But such prosaic interpretations do not satisfy the greatest figure in Western literature: Don Quixote. Quixote’s story—moving, funny, and thrilling—embodies the glory and absurdity, vanity and idealism, sorrow and delight of humanity. Cervantes created a hero for all time and for all mankind.Available Formats: Digital Rental39.6 hrs • Mar/28/2011 • Unabridged
Don Quixote is the classic story. Called the first modern novel, this marvelous book has stood the test of time to become irrevocably intertwined with the fabric of society. Sixteenth-century Spanish gentleman Don Quixote, fed by his own delusional fantasies, takes to the road in search of chivalrous adventures. But his quest leads to more trouble than triumph. At once humorous, romantic, and sad, Don Quixote is a literary landmark. This fresh edition, by award-winning translator Edith Grossman, brings the tale to life as never before.Available Formats:3.3 hrs • Jul/01/2010 • Abridged
Quixotic is a word that the dictionary defines as “extravagantly chivalrous or romantic; visionary”—and that is a fitting definition, indeed, for this charming retelling of Don Quixote, the 17th century Spanish classic by Miguel de Cervantes, now updated for the modern reader.The gallant and fragile Quixote will touch listeners, as will his faithful squire Sancho Panza and the tragically beautiful heroine of the gentle Don’s chivalries, the fair Dulcinea. Don Quixote is rightfully noted to “move to pity rather than ridicule, and to tears as well as laughter. And herein lies its chief claim to greatness, that it seems to have been written not for one country nor for one age alone, but to give delight to all humankind.”Available Formats:39.2 hrs • Nov/24/2008 • Unabridged
Don Quixote is a middle-aged gentleman from the region of La Mancha in central Spain. Obsessed with the chivalrous ideals touted in the many books he has read, he decides to take up his lance and sword to defend the helpless and destroy the wicked. After a first failed adventure, he sets out on a second one with a somewhat befuddled laborer named Sancho Panza, whom he has persuaded to accompany him. In many works, the experiences of a man like Don Quixote would probably appear tragic. He’s repeatedly beaten, chased away, lied to, and misunderstood. But in the hands of Miguel de Cervantes, these events are comic.Available Formats:36.7 hrs • Jan/01/2006 • Unabridged
With a wealth of fancy and an irrepressible high spirit, this beloved adventure story pokes fun at the exaggerated social and literary conventions of Cervantes’ day. Driven mad by reading too many chivalric romances, Don Quixote decks himself out in rusty armor and a cardboard helmet, determined to become a knight-errant and roam the world righting wrongs. He persuades the practical Sancho Panza to become his squire, and his inspiration on his quest is the peasant girl Aldonza, whom he idealizes as his queen of love and beauty, Dulcinea. From his first fighting encounter with a score of windmills to his climactic confrontation with a victorious enemy, Don Quixote’s feeble mind and heroic heart have earned him a place as one of the best-loved characters in fiction. A work consistently ranked among the greatest in all of literature, Don Quixote de la Mancha has inspired and influenced a host of notable writers over the past four centuries.Available Formats: CD, MP3 CD, Digital RentalLoading more titles...
