Don Quixote the worlds first novel and by far the best-known book in Spanish literature was originally intended by Cervantes as a skit on traditional popular ballads, yet he also parodied the romances of chivalry.
By happy coincidence he produced one of the most entertaining adventure stories of all time and, in Don Quixote and his faithful squire, Sancho Panza, two of the greatest characters in fiction

Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra (1547-1616), Spanish novelist, playwright, and poet, studied in Madrid then became a soldier and was wounded in battle. He was captured by pirates in 1575, put in prison at Algiers, and was ransomed five years later. He spent the rest of his life struggling to earn a living from literature and humble government employment. His first attempt at fiction was a pastoral novel, La Galatea (1585), which was followed by his masterpiece, The Adventures of Don Quixote de la Mancha (1605).

Earphones Awards recipient Robert Whitfield was born in England and worked for the BBC for ten years as a radio news announcer and also worked as a narrator for the Royal National Institute for the Blind in London. In addition to narrating for Blackstone Audiobooks, he involves himself in numerous stage-acting projects in the United States and Europe.
