For a long time American students have needed an introductory Spanish historical grammar specifically written for them; the standard book on the subject, Menendez Pida's Manual de gramatica historica, was written around the turn of this century in Spain, when students were expected to know Latin. Most students of today have no background in Latin since the modern curriculum has placed emphasis elsewhere. In this standard manual, Lathrop offers a detailed preliminary chapter dealing with the basic facts of Classical Latin important to the development of Spanish, as well as a detailed picture of Vulgar Latin--the language of the masses. It was this spoken language which was the origin of Spanish. In the second chapter he explains the evolution of vowels and consonants from Vulgar Latin to Spanish, with numerous examples illustrating each point. In the third chapter, he shows how the various grammatical forms, most particularly nouns, adjectives and verbs, evolved from Vulgar Latin to Spanish, again with many examples of reach section. At the end of the volume there is a useful index of words, a detailed, updated bibliography, a translation of Latin words into English, and a general index
El ingenioso hidalgo don Quijote de la Mancha by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra ( Book )
18 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in Spanish and English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Don Quixote has become so entranced by reading chivalry romances that he determines to turn knight-errant himself. In the company of his faithful squire, Sancho Panza, these exploits blossom in all sorts of wonderful ways. While Quixote's fancy often leads him astray - he tilts at windmills, imagining them to be giants - Sancho acquires cunning and a certain sagacity. Sane madman and wise fool, they roam the world together - and together they have haunted readers' imaginations for nearly four hundred years." "With its experimental form and literary playfulness, Don Quixote has been generally recognized as the first modern novel. The book has been enormously influential on a host of writers, from Fielding and Sterne to Flaubert, Dickens, Melville, and Faulkner, who reread it once a year, "just as some people read the Bible." This Penguin Classics edition includes John Rutherford's new translation, which does full justice to the energy and wit of Cervantes's prose, as well as a new critical introduction by Roberto Gonzalez Echevarria."--BOOK JACKET

The novella tells the story of the local Catholic priest (Don Manuel) in fictional Valverde de Lucerna, Spain as told through the eyes, Angela, one of the townspeople. Throughout the course of the story Manuel is adored by the people of the town. He is constantly in the service of the townspeople. He refrains from condemning anyone and goes out of his way to help those whom the people have marginalized. They consider him their "Saint". Angela, after a brief stint away for education, returns to the town to live with her mother where she continues to be amazed at Manuel's devotion. Her brother, Lazarus, returns from the New World and is likewise amazed, but is not a believer. When their mother dies, her dying wish is that Lazarus will be converted. After this takes place, Angela learns that neither Manuel or Lazarus believe in an afterlife, but devote themselves to serving the townspeople anyway; Manuel suffers greatly from revealing his unbelief to the point of dying. Lazarus takes over Manuel's duties after Manuel's death and Angela learns Manuel is being considered for beatification
