Don Quixote Book I by Miguel de Cervantes

Don Quixote is a novel that recounts the adventures of Alonso Quijano, a Spanish nobleman obsessed with the idea of chivalry. He takes the name Don Quixote and sets out as a knight, taking on the farmer Sancho Panza as his squire. In the first volume of this classic, Don Quixote's imagination causes him to view ordinary circumstances as scenes from chivalric novels, resulting in many amusing incidents, like Quixote attacking windmills that he believes to be giants. Eventually, he gives up on his quest and returns home.
