An absolute must for the lovers of Don Quixote. Amadis was his hero! Amadis was the book that more than anything prompted DQ into action! Fabulous in itself and illuminating to anyone interested in Cervantes project. The reader can choose to see Amadis` author as a sentimental fool - or - take the trouble to ponder what the point of chivalry is - (I guess there is as many ways to misunderstand what a damsel in distress is, as there are readers).

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0813190347, Paperback)

" Includes a new Introduction by John E. Keller In the long history of European prose fiction, few works have been more influential and more popular than the romance of chivalry Amadis of Gaul. Although its original author is unknown, it was probably written during the early fourteenth century. The first great bestseller of the age of printing, Amadis of Gaul was translated into dozens of languages and spawned sequels and imitators over the centuries. A handsome, valiant, and undefeatable knight, Amadis is perhaps best known today as Don Quixote's favorite knight-errant and model. This exquisite English translation restores a masterpiece to print.
