If you haven’t read Don Quijote in Spanish, I strongly recommend the definitive 400th Anniversary Edition.
Back when I was in high school I had a teacher who was obsessed with this novel. Unfortunately for her, she not only failed to convey the reasons for her enthusiasm but also neglected other literature and I thought the book was a thudding bore. Then some 10 years ago I was one of the readers at Recording For The Blind and Dyslexic. Reading the book out loud was a revelation.
So go ahead, read it aloud. If your near and dear think you’re crazy, it makes it all the more Quixotic anyway.
