Publisher's Summary

Edicion en audio conmemorativa del IV centenario de su primera publicacion (1605). En 1955 el mundo de habla espanola se preparaba para conmemorar los 350 anos de la primera edicion de esa obra maxima de la literatura universal que es "Don Quijote" de Cervantes. Dentro de los actos mas importantes, el gobierno espnñol, a traves de lo que en esa epoca se llamaba Radio Nacional de Espana, preparo una ambiciosa transmision de la obra maestra con la participacion de algunos de los mas importantes actores del teatro espanol. Infortunadamente, las circunstancias economicas de la Europa de la epoca no permitieron realizar esas grabaciones y ellas solo vinieron a dar fruto cinco anos mas tarde, a partir de 1960, cuando el que se considera uno de los grandes programas radiales en espanol tuvo su fruto.If there would be a book written in Spanish which should be declared a monument this would be the one. Not just because the writting is wonderful. It's use of Spanish is in the most perfect way. Also because with these two characters Cervantes explains and depicts something very hard to do. The Spanish mind.
