from the introduction
There is perhaps no book, among the world's great classics, which lends itself so readily to abridgement as " Don Quixote." In the First Part, down to the knight's return from the Sierra Morena, the narrative moves on swiftly and surely in one unclouded blaze of genius; but after this prodigious effort the author's invention begins to flag, and the remaining chapters are padded out with a mass of episodes which have little or no connection with the story.

The admirable Second Part, though more carefully planned, and unencumbered by irrelevant matter, is certainly, on the whole, less brilliant and delightful than those wonderful thirty chapters which exhibit Cervantes in the heyday of his powers.
