Is Don Quixote hard to read?

>> No.16842975

Why don't you open it up in your web browser and find out?

Yet they wouldn't understand it. Literature is a trap for those who cannot reason.

>> No.16842992

Depends. A lot of translations simplify it but if you understand Spanish and read the original text it's kind of like reading Paradise Lost as a modern English speaker.

>> No.16843025

>>16842988
they'd understand more than you

Ironically, if Spanish is your second language, then Don Quixote is easier to read than Paradise Lost for a modern English speaker.

Here's some reading advice for you, OP, and everyone else that tends to ask this sort of question. If you want something easily digestible and are afraid to struggle and put some effort into understanding a work, then don't read, or at least steer clear from works that can actually impact you on a profound level or at least impart some wisdom on their reader.

Maestro thinks that he has to be essentially appointed the official transducer/scientist of spanish literature, what a quixotic character. Personally i think the reader has the duty to tell the literary critic to get bent
