This Summer I'm re-reading Don Quixote, the Edith Grossman translation. As my Spanish friend Roberto said, "If you're not laughing, you're not getting it."
Every chapter has some scene or dialogue that makes me laugh out loud. What helps me is to envision Don Quixote talking like King Arthur from The Holy Grail (which, that character was a nod to Don Quixote originally anyways).
It's a book that influenced so much literature, and movies, today. It's the original buddy story.
