Don Quijote de La Mancha. Edicion Rae / Don Quixote de La Mancha. Rae
Don Quijote de La Mancha. Edicion Rae / Don Quixote de La Mancha. Rae | Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, Miguel de Cervantes
La RAE, la ASALE y Alfaguara reeditan la edicion conmemorativa del Quijote con prologo inedito de Dario Villanueva Hace diez anos, las academias de la lengua espanola pensaron un Quijote para todos. Hoy se reedita en edicion limitada para conmemorar los cuatrocientos anos de la muerte de Cervantes. En los anos 2015 y 2016 confluyen dos aniversarios cervantinos. A la celebracion del IV Centenario de la Publicacion de la Segunda Parte del Quijote (2015), le seguira, en 2016, la conmemoracion del IV Centenario de la Muerte de Miguel de Cervantes. Como ocurrio hace mas de una decada, las academias de la lengua espanola y la editorial Alfaguara se unen a esta celebracion con una reedicion de este clasico universal dirigida a todo el ambito hispanohablante. Esta edicion cuenta con un nuevo prologo, escrito por Dario Villanueva, director de la Real Academia Espanola (RAE) y presidente de la Asociacion de Academias de la Lengua Espanola (ASALE), especialmente para la ocasion. Se completa con un glosario formado por siete mil palabras, locuciones, frases proverbiales y refranes, explicados segun el significado preciso que tienen en el texto cervantino. La primera edicion de este Quijote se convirtio en un gran exito de ventas, sin precedentes en una obra clasica. Mas de tres millones de ejemplares, distribuidos en Espana y America, la convirtieron en la mas difundida de la historia. A conseguir su caracter divulgativo y su orientacion hacia un publico diverso y no especializado, contribuyen especialmente las notas contextualizadoras de la obra, preparadas por Francisco Rico. Tambien se incluyen una serie de estudios complementarios, escritos por algunos de los principales expertos en el gran libro cervantino. Asi, Mario Vargas Llosa analiza la modernidad del Quijote en -Una novela para el siglo xxi-; Francisco Ayala reflexiona sobre la construccion de los personajes de la novela en -La invencion del Quijote-, y Martin de Riquer analiza la obra en el contexto biografico del autor en -Cervantes y el Quijote-. Por su parte, Jose Manuel Blecua (-El Quijote en la historia de la lengua espanola-), Guillermo Rojo (-Cervantes como modelo linguistico-), Jose Antonio Pascual (-Los registros linguisticos del Quijote: la distancia ironica de la realidad-), Margit Frenk (-Oralidad, escritura, lectura-) y Claudio Guillen (-Cauces de la novela cervantina: perspectivas y dialogos-) abordan distintos aspectos relacionados con la lengua espanola en la obra cervantina. A todos ellos se une en esta ocasion el actual director de la RAE, Dario Villanueva, que ha querido -aprovechar la oportunidad de oro que me ofrece hoy la nueva salida de esta edicion [] para dar una explicacion mi explicacion de algunos de los porques del tan alto reconocimiento que el Quijote ha obtenido desde la fecha de su publicacion hasta hoy, asi como su palmaria modernidad-, antes de recordar que el Quijote fue la obra elegida, en 2002, como la mejor novela de todos los tiempos, por delante de En busca del tiempo perdido, de Proust, y de Guerra y paz, de Tolstoi, en una encuesta realizada por la Asociacion de Escritores de Suecia entre cien autores de todo el mundo. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION Ten years ago, the Academies of the Spanish Language conceived of a Don Quixote for everyone. Now, it is being re-releasedin a limited editionto commemorate the 400th anniversary of Cervantes s death. 2015 and 2016 bring with them two special Cervantes anniversaries. The celebration of the 400th Anniversary of the Publication of the Second Part of Don Quixote in 2015 will be followed in 2016 by the Commemoration of the 400th Anniversary of Miguel de Cervantes s Death. As they did more than a decade ago, the Academies of the Spanish Language and Alfaguara unite for this celebration with a re-edition of the universal classic directed at the whole Spanish-speaking world. This edition boasts a new prologue written specially for the occasion by Dario Villanueva, the director of the Real Academia de la Lengua Espanola (RAE) (RAE) and president of the Asociacion de Academias de la Lengua Espanola (ASALE). It is complemented by a glossary made up of seven thousand words, expressions, phrases and proverbs, each explained according to its precise meaning in Cervantes s text. The first edition of this Quixote became a huge sales success, unprecedented for a classic work. More than three million copies, distributed in Spain and the Americas, made it the most widespread in history. The contextualizing notes about the work, prepared by Francisco Rico, contribute to its educational character and its orientation toward a diverse and non-specialized public. It also includes a series of complementary studies, written by some of the primary experts in Cervantes s consummate book. As such, Mario Vargas Llosa analyzes the modernity of Don Quixote in A Novel for the 21st Century; Francisco Ayala reflects upon the construction of the novel s characters in The Invention of the Quixote; and Martin de Riquer analyzes the work in the biographical context of the author in Cervantes and Quixote. For their part, Jose Manuel Blecua ( Don Quixote in the History of the Spanish Language ), Guillermo Rojo ( Cervantes as a Linguistic Model ), Jose Antonio Pascual ( The Linguistic Registers of Don Quixote: The Ironic Distance from Reality ), Margit Frenk ( Orality, Writing, Reading ), and Claudio Guillen ( The Course of Cervantes s novel: Perspectives and Dialogues ) deal with different aspects related to the Spanish language in Cervantes s work. Joining all this is the current director of the Real Academia de la Lengua Espanola (RAE), Dario Villanueva, who wants to take advantage of the golden opportunity that the release of this new edition offers [] to give an explanationmy explanationof some of the reasons for the high recognition that Don Quixote has gained from the date of its publication until today, as well as its clear modernity, before reminding us that Don Quixote was the work chosen in 2002 as the best novel of all time, even ahead of In Search of Lost Time by Proust and War and Peace by Tolstoy, in a survey conducted by the Swiss Writers Association of 100 authors from around the world.

Mehso-so

I‘m stuck in the 20th century as far as literary critique of this one goes; critics in that era came to view the story as a tragedy, where Don Quixote‘s simple idealism is rendered useless by a harsh reality. Sure, there are plenty of quick quips and slapstick encounters, but really, the truth at the heart of the story is terribly sad.

When I asked which #chunkster to read for the rest of the summer, the votes overwhelmingly came back in favor of Don Quixote! 🎉 🎉 🎉 Edith Grossman is a personal hero of mine, and her translation of DQ (of course) got gushing reviews, so that's the edition I'm reading 😁 My weekend is today/tomorrow, so I'll definitely be diving in before I'm back at work!

I‘ll be honest, my 3rd day with Don and I‘m tired of his antics. Thankfully only Part I is assigned.

everlocalwest This was my big summer read last year and yeah, the second book just feels unnecessary. 4mo
Tamra @everlocalwest I‘ll read a summary of Part 2, thanks for the note! 4mo
everlocalwest Most interesting bit is that someone wrote a second part before Cervantes could and it is referred to as 'The False Quixote.' I don't know why but this factoid pleases me. Also, that the false Quixote is the first fanfic and of course the author was big mad about it. 4mo

I will say I liked the first half better than the second, and that there were way too many characters for me to keep track of properly 😂

Is often said that we have no satisfactory translation of DQ. To those who are familiar with the original, it‘s savours of truism or platitude to say so...It is not that the Spanish idioms are so utterly unmanageable, or that the untranslated words...are so superabundant, but rather that the sententious terseness to which the humor of the book owes its flavor is peculiar to Spanish, and can at best be only distantly imitated in any other tongue.

I am in the process of putting together a list of books I've read in my twenties to re-read - some I liked, some I didn't - to see what I will make of them a decade or more later. I've been re-reading books regularly of course, some of them many times (for example Anna Karenina) but I want to do this in a more planned way, to run in tandem with my lifetime reading plan. (Right now based on 1001 books / Guardian 1000 books + assorted plays).

Haroon_Ishaq How many times did u read Anna Karenina ? 8mo
merelybookish Interesting! Is there any book you expect you'll feel differently about? (I have a few books that I loved in my 20s that I would never reread, in part because I'm pretty sure they wouldn't withstand middle age scrutiny and I don't want to destroy my memory of them. 😬) 8mo
zsuzsanna_reads @merelybookish I am not sure! I wonder how well White Teeth has aged - I read it when it came out. I am mostly hoping I will like some that I didn't back then, like Tess of the d'Urbervilles. 8mo

I'm sure a lot is, but I'm finding it very funny and engaging. #gilmoregirlsreadingchallenge

This is a far funnier satire of knighthood and chivalry than I expected. Many jokes hold up quite well, and I giggled a couple of times. The second half is more solid and mature than the first, while still producing smiles. There was also a lot of pondering. There are, unfortunately, a bunch of things that don't hold up, given the time it was written. I'm glad I finally read it. A lot more fun than you might expect from a 400-year-old novel.
