After having compiled the core of the 400th anniversary edition sponsored by the Real Academia Española, the text and notes of Don Quixote come now in this revised and augmented version; also in the care of Francisco Rico.The text became complete after an examination of all significant editions, old and modern, using the most rigorous philological methods. Notes clarify doubts that a modern reader could raise. They have been worded to provide maximum clarity and a streamlined reading.The appendix, located at the end of the volume, includes maps, diagrams and illustrations. It also includes a comprehensive literary and historical study on the Quixote, and detailed information on the life and works of Cervantes, as well as the first editions and the language of the novel.A table of contents allows readers to quickly locate the main episodes of the tale. To facilitate the referencing of the work, this edition includes a complete record of the sayings, quoted works and authors, memorable themes and passages, proper names, words, phrases, and idioms.

Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra was born in Alcala de Henares, Spain, in 1547. In 1585, a few months after his marriage to Catalina de Salazar, he published his first major work as an author, the pastoral novel La Galatea which was poorly received. Cervantes became a tax collector in Granada in 1594, but was imprisoned in 1597 due to money problems with the government. Folklore maintains that while in prison, he wrote his most famous novel, Don Quixote, which was an immediate success upon publication in 1605. After several years of writing short novels and plays, Cervantes was spurred to write the sequel to Don Quixote in 1615 when an unauthorized sequel appeared to great acclaim. Though Cervantes' sequel was rushed and flawed, Don Quixote remains a powerful symbol that has endured to present times in many forms. Cervantes died on April 22, 1616, at the age of 69.
