A poor Spanish gentleman about 50 years old loves reading stories about knights. Slowly he starts to lose touch with reality and begins to believe that he is one of these fiction heroes.
He finds some old armor and prepares an old horse. He calls himself Don Quixote and persuades his neighbor, Sancho Panza, to be his squire by promising him riches, fame and the governorship of an island. Together, they get away and their famous adventures begin.
Don Quixote takes a small inn for a castle, and he believes large windmills to be giants and thus attacks. He attacks a flock of sheep, believing it to be an army, finds a barber basin which he believes to be a helmet....
This book is rewritten from "Don Quixote of La Mancha" by Miguel de Cervantes. This novel is his masterpiece and is considered to represent the birth of modern literature in the 20th century.
