Don Quixote celebrates a communal, tolerant spirit of rural life embodied not only in Sancho Panza, but in the neighborly farmer Pedro Alonso, in the generous goatherds who share their food with knight and squire, and in the village priest and barber with their efforts to retrieve the errant Don Quixote. â•›A major theme in Part Two of the novel, such community already suggests in Part One a way that a nonheroic age can be redeemed, especially in the relationship of â•›loyalty, friendship, and affection that develops between Don Quixote and Sancho Panza.
Reproducing such a self-conscious, tongue-in-cheek style poses one of the greatest challenges for a translator.
