I’m a little mystified by a Signet Classics mass market paperback of Don Quixote that arrived in the mail a short while back. Apparently it is a “new” translation, as the cover claims (copyright 2011 Tom Lathrop). On the other hand, I don’t know that I’ve ever seen a book like this published solely as a MMP.
Possibly it got reviewed in the TLS. Other than that, looks that the media effort has been nil, other than mailing bloggers review copies with publicity materials so bare as to merit the word cryptic.
One other odd thing. This book has the chattiest footnotes I’ve ever seen. And there are tons of them. For example:
Translator’s note: Of course, the episode with the cattleman has yet to happen. Cervantes–who knows exactly where everything is and should go–is just pretending to be careless.
Thanks for sharing.
