Review

Praise for Burton Raffel's translations
For Balzac's "Pere Goriot"
"Raffel's "Pere Goriot" is both faithful and beautiful, and that makes it a masterpiece." --Alain Renoir
"I predict that this translation will give Balzac's great novel a new life for English and American readers. . . . The definitive translation for this generation." --Peter Brooks
"[Raffel's] translation has the vigor and elasticity of Balzac's style, and catches with uncanny accuracy the tone of the period." --Guy Davenport
For Cervantes's "Don Quijote"
"[Raffel's "Don Quijote"] recasts the original into lively English, without losing the complexity and flavor of the Spanish. . . . This "Quijote" flows smoothly and reads, in fact, like original prose rather than a translation." --Adrienne Martin
