A Literary Companion to Don Quijote

A Literary Companion to Don Quijote

Finally, the most useful companion volume for Don Quijote ever produced is now available for students of Spanish and the Quijote! Ohio University's David G. Burton brings us a collection to give readers a deeper insight into Cervantes' masterwork. From the introduction:

[This companion] represents works that influenced Cervantes and/or to which he makes reference in the novel. These works, written in either prose or verse and published between the late 15th and the early 17th centuries, demonstrate the wide range of texts that Cervantes knew and had at his disposal. The great majority of these texts refer to chivalry, but others, like the Spanish pastoral romances and the picaresque inform episodes in both parts of the novel. Editors of Cervantes’ masterpiece often cite these texts, but until now, there appears to be no one volume in which the student can locate and read, for example, selections from Amadís, Belianís, or Tirant. While these texts offer delightful reading, most undergraduate students do not have the time required to read such lengthy tales nor do they have experience with the linguistic difficulties that these old texts often present. To facilitate reading, I have modernized some difficult forms and spellings while retaining as much of the original language and syntax as possible, thereby maintaining the flavor of the texts. I hope that glosses and footnotes aid in the understanding of especially difficult passages.

Burton's Literary Companion is divided into two parts: Extended Poetry and Prose and Romances. This is a perfect companion to Lathrop's Don Quijote edition and the Don Quijote Dictionary. Check it out at Amazon.com:

About Cervantes & Co:

Founded in 1998 by Tom Lathrop, the publishing imprint Cervantes & Co. brought a unique pedagogical apparatus to students nationwide. The enormous success of Lathrop's Spanish edition of Don Quijote designed for English-speaking students inspired many more editions using the same pedagogy.

Editions produced in Spain for Spanish nationals assume cultural and linguistic baggage that our students simply do not and cannot have. In our editions, words that students are likely not to know are in the margin—already looked up, in English—so they know instantly what they mean. We feel that using English is correct since using Spanish glosses either dilute the meaning (we’ve seen insecto for escarabajo, for example), or force students to look up the glossed word (such as cogote being glossed for colodrillo). We also offer lots of footnotes that students in Spain do not need, but ours require. A final glossary defines more words than are in the margins, just in case.
